Social studio Bossa predicts ‘horrible premature death’ for Vita

Vita will suffer a horrible, premature death” if it doesn’t open up to multiplatform accessibility, Bossa co-founder Henrique Olifiers has claimed.

Olifiers said that the UK studio would not develop games for consoles because of their closed systems, and believes manufacturers would suffer in the long run if they did not change their stance on interconnectivity.

I hate the fact you cannot play a game on the PS3 against the same game on the Xbox 360 or PC,” Olifiers toldVideogamer."Valve is bang on, proprietary stuff is madness, we should be moving to more open platforms, to interoperability, bringing everyone together.

If this is not the motto for the big console manufacturers, not only will we not be there – they’re likely to die a horrible premature death, the kind of which I think the Vita will suffer from.”
