Sony has admitted that it is struggling to get publishers to back the PlayStation Vita.
Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told the UK PlayStation the Official Magazine, via CVG, that Sony is finding it harder than expected to get publishers on-side.
"We're having a more difficult time than we had anticipated in terms of getting support from third-party publishers, but that's our job," said Yoshida. "We will continue to talk to development communities and publishing partners and tell them why Vita can provide a great experience for the IPs they have."
He hopes that games like Assassin's Creed III: Liberation will be the beginning of more confidence from publishers to release games on the Vita.
Publishers may be deterred by the fact that Vita sales appeared to have reached an all-time low. Sony recently revised its 2012 portable games sales expectation from 16 million to 12 million units, and combined the PSP and Vita as portable sales.
