DrinkBox Studios: "Vita owners are the ****ing best"

Good article about DrinkBox Studios and why the Vita deserves more attention from devs:

 

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2014-04-14-ps-vita-doesnt-deserve-bad-reputation-drinxbox

 

"Honestly, Vita owners are the ****ing best," McQuinn said. "People rag on the Vita so much, and I think people who rag on the Vita don't understand, at least from a business perspective, the purchasing power of Vita owners. Vita owners are serious purchasers of games. It's an amazing system."

I've said this before and glad DrinkBox is being upfront about it. Most 3DS owners I know have very few games. They bought the 3DS to play Fire Emblem. Or they bought the 3DS to play Animal Crossing. And that's all they care about. Meanwhile, everyone who has a Vita seems to own quite a few games (and I'm not counting the PS+ IGC).

 

For myself, I've already amassed quite the backlog - not at Steam levels, but far more than I thought I would for a handheld. And in relation to DrinkBox, I bought Guacamelee for Vita on day one because 1) it looked awesome (and was), and 2) I love Mutant Blobs Attack, which was IGC, so I felt I owed them!

 

I'll probably buy Severed on Vita just because I love DrinkBox. Definitely my favorite indie studio right now.

Slightly shortened title, so it doesn't end at "****ing" when viewed from main page. -HS

It's always nice when a dev gives the Vita some love. It also helps when they flatter us fans.

I don't understand why the Vita gets so much criticism. It is in fact a great handheld! I bought it souley for one game I wanted but ended up getting a lot more once I realized how awesome it was.

You should if you haven't already. Seriously, Guacamelee is my favorite platformer in a long time and Mutant Blobs Attack is quite fun as well!

 

Their next game, Severed, looks trippy as hell.

Gotta agree with you and the article. Vita has been a great buy and I wish there was more game support. Although, there have been PLENTY of good games available.

 

Just my two cents
