    Shahid Kamal Ahmad (@shahidkamal) put a load of info in a series of tweets about 9hrs ago explaining the lack of vita love, I've put them together below:

    Vitabros, Vita fans, GAFfers, listen up. Ready? This is for you.
    My team is called Strategic Content. Iíll tell you what our mission is. Engage with developers and partners to sign great games.
    we have a plan to deliver over 50 titles to PS Vita, some of which we have been announcing for many months. More announcements will come.
    Those 50 titles are in just one year. Many from independent developers, some from publishers and others.
    We are going to carry on working with developers and other partners to ensure great games come to PS Vita. We have senior management support
    I spend my personal time to engage with customers and partners, relentlessly. If you know me, or have been following me, you know this
    Some of the more upset fans (I love you, because you have passion for the machine that is my life) say this was not a good E3 for Vita.
    I have to politely disagree. Here are some of the things specifically called out in what was mainly a PS4 conferenceÖ
    Walking Dead - Vita special. God of War HD Dead Nation You know of Killzone and Tearaway
    I had one diet coke to celebrate our beautiful press event yesterday, then I went back to my room and got back to work on Vita.
    Hereís what weíre showing at E3
    Spelunky - best on Vita
    Stick it to the Man on Vita - it is beautiful. See it.
    Luftrausers - day in date and frickin awesome on Vita - by award winning Vlambeer
    Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark - best on Vita
    Hotline Miami - best on Vita
    Lone Survivor: Directorís Cut - massively enhanced, best on Vita
    And more. First time these games have all been seen together in public
    We have over 20 titles on the slate which we havenít announced for Vita. We are working non-stop to bring more.
    This morning I saw Frozen Synapse: Tactics. It is completely remade over the original and looks amazing on Vita, by the brilliant Double 11
    This morning I also saw another nice Vita title that is coming soon. You will like it and itís in a genre we donít have much cover of
    I recently asked you for input on jrpgs. The community responded overwhlemingly.
    I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the #jrpgvita feedback. IT was monumental. I am already acting on it.
    I canít promise you all you want. I can promise you that I will break my back as I have always done serving your interests
    That ďbig amazing titleĒ I teased a while back? That is by a big third party. Iím sorry, I canít announce it - itís too soon.
    You should know this about me. I tell the truth. I break my back for you and I work tirelessly on my mission and so does my team.
    We work as hard as our partners do and often harder. My right hand man Lorenzo is a machine. He puts in STUPID hours.
    We will do everything we can do bring you #jrpgvita - but it will take time and it will need partner support. You can help :-)
    Remember also that all PS4 games will be playable on Vita (if they donít have Move or Camera support) - that is huge. Eventually, Gaikai too
    You ask about AAA games. Well, there are many, many games coming from third parties, but I cannot discuss our parntersí plans.
    I can tell you what Strategic Content is doing. Everything in our power. Everything. We work nights, we work weekends, we are on it.
    You didnít think Vita got the love at the press event. This is probably the most important year in our history. Guess what the priority was?
    Strategic Content and other groups have been announcing Vita games all year and will continue to announce and release them.
    One year ago, we were in a very different position with Vita. Now, we have so many devs engaged itís incredible.
    I have had Vita meetings all day. With large partners, with medium, with small. More and more stuff is coming to Vita.
    The bigger projects? They take time. They are expensive. So we donít announce them early. Asking me to pre-reveal wonít move me.
    I love our customers and fans, but I will never betray the trust of our partners. So I canít just announce their work :-)
    I donít switch off. I am your advocate within Sony. I am working on Vita constantly. I love it. I want you to be happy.
    I spend a *lot* of time I could spend with my family chatting with fans. If you are unhappy, I will engage. If you are rude, I wonít.
    Today, I agreed in principle a deal for another outstanding game for Vita. Now, Iím going to get back to talking to partners about more.
    I like having a frank and honest dialogue with you, but you should know this. Vita is buzzing. MY heart is full of it. Yours should be too.
    Some people have been disrespectful about indies. Please, that is really wrong. They are the future of video games.
    George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, they were once indies. :-)
    And some of the indies are already making games that not that long ago were considered ďAAAĒ
    The truth is, there is space for all of us. A good game is a good game. We provide a platform. Enjoy from a varied menu :-)
    Ask anyone who has followed me or engaged with me for the last 6 months or more. I do not break my word. I deliver.
    Remember how things were a year ago. Look at the world today. PlayStation is the happening platform.
    I could be on Skype to my wife and kids. Instead, I took my hour break and missed my coach back to the hotel to show you respect.
    So if I do that for you, I do it because I will do what it takes to win your trust. That is my philosophy. What is yours? With me #vitabros?

    I know Shahid, and have worked with him before, I can attest to the measure of the man.

    He will personally ensure that the Vita is well looked after, and move heaven and earth to get great content onto the platform.

    That's all nice and good, but I'd rather poke my eye out than be a #vitabro. Whatever that is.

    I think it was more in response to the criticism that he's been getting this week, about being a liar or a sham.

    I'm sick of hearing that Vita is dead just because it wasn't seen much at this year's press conference. Sony have something called the PS4 out this year. If they didn't show the games for it, the momentum that the PS4 gained through MS's panned reveal and subsequent controversies would have dissipated because it would look like that MS at least had the games to back up their console.

    Yes, I would have liked more but people need to remember that E3 is not just about the press conferences (yes I know they're the bits everyone remembers). Head to the Playstation Blog and look out for news on titles. There will probably be some live streams from the show floor later.

    Oh, and this isn't aimed at anyone here in particular. Just the general mood everywhere else. I'm probably one of those desperate for the games to stop so I can get a foothold in my backlog - I think I've finished a grand total of 3 games this year :p

    It's dead for a whole lot more reasons than that.

    Yes, and if you follow @llamasoft_ox on twitter he's having loads of fun making it :-)
    And getting great support from Sony. They are really helping Indie devs a lot these days.

    Thank god someone told me. I thought I was enjoying an hour or so every day on it and quite like the indie stuff upcoming, also really glad I'm not excited for Killzone anymore.

    I reckon in the very least it has a lifeline due to PS4 remote-play, whether it needed it or not, I'm not sure.

    I don't think it being dead or not has any significant effect of people's enjoyment of it. I bought a Gamecube when it was dead and I had loads of fun.

    I want Dragon's Crown localisation news! ;)

    One of the games that I'm most looking forward to is Lone Survivor. I pretty much never play games on the computer (various reasons), but I was very intrigued by the reports I read about it.

    I keep hoping for that with every article on it! I loved Ducktales when I was little and a nostalgia trip with the characters would be no bad thing.

    My Xbox hasn't been on since February 22nd 2012. Funnily enough coinciding with the release of a certain new handheld console!
