Yves Guillemot appeared to say in an interview with Dutch publication Inside Gamer that the slow-selling handheld would still be supported with exclusive key projects similar in scope to Assassin's Creed: Liberation.

CVG's review team claims Assassin's Creed: Liberation was a triumph on handheld, and the game has managed to sell about 600,000 units following strong marketing support from PlayStation.

However, Sony has only managed to shift several million Vitas one year since its launch. The corporation no longer specifies Vita sales in its annual reports.

Sony has cut the Vita price in Japan in a bid to boost sales, but has indicated that there are no such plans for North America and Europe.
