Sony has expressed a strong desire to improve its digital output going forward, but I still hold doubts about how seriously they are taking the mobile market. However, if this latest news is to be believed, not only is Sony totally serious, the company is also going out of its way to make sure indie developers are as comfortable as they can be.

Mobile studio Icon Games has confirmed that its iOS title Great Little War Game will be coming to the PS Vita once the unit launches. How did Icon get those PS Vita dev kits so early? Well, Sony was so impressed by the game that Icon was gifted four kits absolutely free! Has there been a precedence for such an act in recent memory?

If this is how Sony is going to play ball, Nintendo better wake up and stop kicking the dirt!
