Sega West CEO Hayes Offers Support for Playstation Vita

“We’ve made it very clear we’re going to support Sony”

Speaking to website IndustryGamers, Sega West CEO Mike Hayes praised the upcoming Playstation Vita, even though the new Sony handheld won’t be out in domestic markets until next year.

“We’ve made it very clear we’re going to support Sony,” Hayes said, speaking specifically about bringing the Virtua Tennis franchise to the system.  “Sony has made it very clear they want to target core gamers primarily. So we take that on board with the titles that we’re going to bring out.”

In further remarks to the website, Hayes hints a willingness to bring budget, downloadable titles to the system, in much the same vein as XBOX Live or PSN fares.

“The nice thing about the Vita, I think, is ultimately going to be the range of software pricing types that you can put on it so it’s not just the high end game at the high end price,” he continued.  “For me, the strength of that device is the whole spectrum of software, that will either sell as physical or as digital. That, I think, is a big point of difference for us as a developer.”
