Should Capcom Bring Resident Evil: Revelations To PlayStation Vita?
With shaky 3DS sales, perhaps Revelations should pull double duty.
That doesn't mean, of course, it'll be a success. Despite carrying the popular Resident Evil name, mature-rated titles often bomb on Nintendo systems.
By now, Capcom should be well aware of this, which begs the following question: Should the company bring this survival horror adventure to PlayStation Vita?
Sony's machine could certainly play the game. Not only is it more powerful than 3DS, but it also features a built-in gyroscope (Capcom has considered motion control) and a touch screen, along with analog sticks for movement.
Clearly, the third party company would have to make some tweaks, like forcing players to bring up the inventory instead of viewing it on the 3DS touch screen at all times. You can also forget about glasses free 3D, but given the lukewarm reception to this feature, Vita owners probably wouldn't miss it.
Bottom line, having Revelations on Vita would not only boost the machine's library, but also give Capcom the opportunity to sell more units to an audience more acceptable of violent content.
Since the 3DS version is exclusive, though, the Vita edition could take awhile.
