On Wednesday, Capcom announced on Sony's PlayStation Blog that it would port excellent Nintendo 3DS title Resident Evil Revelations to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Annoyingly, Sony's PS Vita wasn't on the list of consoles. That's something which left survival-horror-loving gamers from around the world looking forlorn, and mouthing the words "why, why, why".

Some of them even asked that very question in the blog's comment section.

Well, according to Capcom's product manager, Mike Lunn, Revelations isn't being ported to Sony's handheld for two simple reasons. Let's find out...



"When we were developing Revelations for new platforms we really wanted to hone in on the experience you get with a large format screen, surround sound, etc," Lunn said, in response to one comment left on the blog.

"This type of setup really helps players get sucked into the horror vibe and enjoy the game to its fullest extent."

Further down the page, Lunn chimed in again, this time responding to a different comment.

"3DS and PS Vita infrastructure let alone developing games for them are extremely different beasts. Even just the screens as you mention are completely different resolutions/functions," he said.

Sorry, fellow Vita fans.

Yes, that's right! The Vita doesn't deserved it. It's only good for a PS One port of a Resident Evil game. My point is, why can't you tweak it so it will be playable on the Vita as well? Make one for the Vita and you will still make money. Why can't you people just give some Vita love, hah? What's wrong with all of you?

I own this game on the 3DS, but from day one, thought it would be better on the Vita...Guess that won't happen.

This makes no sense! I hope Capcom plans on bringing something RE to the Vita very soon.
