    No Metal Gear Rising on Vita due to Power Concerns

    Platinum Games' hack and slash spin-off, Metal Gear Rising:*Revengeance, won't be appearing on Playstation Vita due to worries about the console's power.

    Kojima Productions creative producer Yuji Korekado told Eurogamer*that there were reservations over whether Sony's handheld would be able to cope with the game's free cutting system, which allows players to slice enemies anyway they choose.

    "As of now we aren't considering a Vita version," he said. "The reason is one of the main appeals of Metal Gear Rising is this option of the free cut. That requires a lot of hardware power, which is only possible with the power of a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.

    "So as of now, we haven't contemplated bringing it to handheld consoles."

    The free cut mechanic is set to be an integral part of the game, with challenges being included that task players to be selective in how they incapacitate enemies.

    Korekado explained, "We know some previous Metal Gear titles there have been some challenges, like having no kills, complete stealth. We are putting challenges in the game. For example, there is one challenge where you have to go through the game just by defeating the enemies dealing the least amount of damage possible, perhaps by cutting just one limb."

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is due to release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on February 19 in America, February 21 in Europe and February 22 in the UK.

    I never expected Metal Gear Rising to show up on the Vita... If it did that's great for Vita owners.

    I'm not surprised about this. I'm more surprised that the game is still in development. Complete abomination of the MGS series. But I'm still going to get it, but at bargain bin prices.

    Platinum is probably saying in an easy way with this response that it doesn't have the time or the manpower to optimize the game for the Vita right now. That's true, more than likely, but it also gives it a sheer negativity to the entire idea of being on the Vita altogether. Which is unfortunate, because a PlatinumGames title on the Vita would be nothing short of glorious.

    That would've been pretty cool though.

    It would have been cool. I am sure with more optimizing they could do it though. Looking forward to this, looks totally awesome.
