Bossa Studios head Henrique Olifiers is predicting failure for PlayStation Vita.

Olifiers believes the Sony handheld will suffer a “horrible premature death” due to a lack of cross-manufacture capabilities.

“I hate the fact you cannot play a game on the PS3 against the same game on the 360 or PC,” he said during an interview with “Walled gardens in a world where people are freely connected all the time is just a dumb idea that limits what is achievable.

“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.”

It’s an interesting opinion, but if the current generation of consoles and devices don’t support cross-manufacture play hugely and are yet to fail, it seems unlikely that the next lot will suffer.

  1. yea…
    well it just my take on this, but i DONT buy no game for multiplayer as the main interest, and i do NOT see how the lack of playing outside the limit of 77+ milion registerd users on psn is gona permenatly kill vita,
    but i could be vrong, because psn, xbl and random pc servers can not conect together, and so you can not play games vith and against 360 and pc users, and for that reason vita vill fail, permenatly!

  2. This is hilarious. I mean yeah I hate that you can’t play with/against all users on multiplat games but then again this is business and if you could do that then there wouldn’t be any purpose in getting a game on one console over the other and they don’t want this. Vita will be fine. These “Vita will fail” comments from people are getting old.
