Didn't see this posted. Over at Giantbomb (skip to 20:35):

http://www.giantbomb.com/giant-bomb-...ay-02/17-4373/

Jeff Gerstmann had a chat with Ed Boon on Mortal Kombat and the future of the franchise, and said that they were in fact doing a version for Vita. I think this is the first official confirmation.

Woo!

I think this is more evidence that a lot of 3rd party support is there, but just simply hasn't been announced yet.

It seems like Sony is just allowing third party devs to announce their games when they're ready.

Did people think there was not going to be any third party support for vita or something?

Exactly. I think we're going to see them all really trickle in, perhaps more of a big announcement at TGS before the Japanese launch though.

Hope they don't allow super combos by just pressing a button on the touch screen, like on SF4 on 3DS.

people had serious doubts based on the PSP's amount of support. They were worried about the lack of 3rd party support announced at E3.

You already just do them by pressing two buttons at the same time.

"Thinking?" He was directly stating it for the last couple of years.

He said "I'd like/love to do mk vs sf crossover." almost as many times as he said "This time we're bringing MK to the roots. Dark and gritty."(hint: since MK4).

Well, the rumors state that final GPUs didn't head out until somewhere between January and March this year, so I think a lot of them are just waiting for their games to look better.

Like, if you compare how a lot of Vita games looked at the PlayStation Meeting to how they look now, the difference is pretty huge, and Sony's developers would be some of the first to get the new dev kits.

Yes, from people who owned PSPs and saw the Western third party support start off pretty "meh" and dwindle down to virtually nothing.

And given the higher costs of developing on PSV, and the lower profit margin on games (thanks to it using carts), I think people have every right to be skeptical of third party support.

And a handful of ports at launch is hardly evidence it will get strong third party support from the West. Let's see how it's going in 3 years, when the PS4/Xbox 3 is out, and quick ports are no longer easy.

(I'm not saying the PSV is doomed, but just be realistic going into it. IMHO, the best hope is strong Japanese support, just like it was for the PSP...)

Yeah he always mentioned how much he likes Street Fighter. Hell let the Capcom folks have free reign and use the characters. Methinks the X-ray attacks would fit in well if Capcom has objections to fatalities.

Considering Neatherrealm was one of the first developers to straight up say "Hey we got PSP2 kits," this isn't that surprising.

It does explain what the "I saw a game for a new system and it looked amazing" thing Gerstmann mentioned a while back was.

Yeah, something that's helping the PSV right now is how easy it is to port PS3 games to it. I can imagine less games being released for it by the time next gen consoles arrive, but as long as it has a strong install base support will stick.

people are still saying the the launch window games for the Vita is lacking. outside of a big RPG (which it still may have), I'm not sure what else people want for this thing.
