Worried developers and publishers aren't giving Sony's PS Vita the attention it deserves? Worry no longer, you poor child.

Don Mesa, Sony's director of product planning and platform software innovation, has told IGN that more than 100 titles will be released on Sony's powerhouse portable in 2013.

These include indie hits like Hotline Miami and Thomas Was Alone; big names like Final Fantasy X HD and Killzone: Mercenary; and a few as-yet-unannounced first-party titles.

"There are games that [Sony] Worldwide Studios guys are building that are… going to be very interesting and innovative, but to give it away too early… we're always worried about copycats," Mesa said.

Spec savvy

Mesa also shared some PS Vita-related stats with IGN.

According to Mesa, a third of all purchased Vita games are bought in digital form through Sony's ever-popular PlayStation Store.

Mesa also revealed that Sony's newest handheld has a satisfaction rating among gamers of 86 percent. Which is pretty impressive.

Furthermore, the average Vita gamer plays with his / her device for around 18.7 hours a week. That's a lot of toilet trips, we must say.
