Capcom Explains Why Resident Evil: Revelations Will Not Be Coming To PS Vita

On January 22nd, Resident Evil Revelations was announced for the WiiU, Xbox360 and PS3 platforms. Initially, the game was exclusive to the 3DS back in 2012. As a portable game revamped to the home consoles, gamers wonder whether a port to the Vita was ever in question. More details inside..........
Capcom's Representative Mike Lunn on Playstation Blog states,
"... we were developing Revelations for new platforms we really wanted to hone in on the experience you get with a large format screen, surround sound, etc. This type of setup really helps players get sucked into the horror vibe and enjoy the game to its fullest extent."
In response to why a port from the 3DS to Playstion Vita was not considered,
"3DS and PS-vita infrastructure let alone developing games for them are extremely different beasts. Even just the screens as you mention are completely different resolutions/functions."
Resident Evil Revelations will be available May 21st in North America and May 24th in Europe for $49.99 on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii U
