Following the success of Vblank Entertainment's Retro City Rampage on PlayStation Network, developer Brian Provinciano encouraged other indie developers to embrace the PlayStation Vita.
The game's creator took to Twitter recently to discuss the difference in release platforms. Retro City Rampage is available through Steam, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, with a WiiWare release hitting tomorrow. Provinciano said that Sony "promoted the game incredibly well," and that Vita players "are hungry for games."
Indies should definitely jump onto the PS Vita. RCR's sold much more on PSN than XBLA and more on PS Vita than even PS3.— Brian Provinciano (@BriProv) February 26, 2013
@psnstores This doesn't include PS Plus. It's _SOLD_ far more on PSN than XBLA. With PS Plus, there are a bajillion more copies out there— Brian Provinciano (@BriProv) February 26, 2013
@kush3 Steam's done much better than XBLA, but PSN's done the best.— Brian Provinciano (@BriProv) February 26, 2013
Provinciano added that the Vita was the easiest platform to develop for. Retro City Rampage launched for PlayStation Network and Windows PC last fall. The game was released on Xbox Live Arcade in January.
