" Honestly, I really wanted to release Ground Zeroes right after Peace Walker ... Whether on PSP or PS3. But then we had development issues, some delays with Metal Gear Rising as well. And then we learned about next generation coming, so it ended up being the way it is now. "
" Since we (FuturLab) self published on PS Vita, and Curve Studios are publishing on PS3, it wouldn't make any financial sense for Curve to publish if it were cross buy (because so many people got the PS Vita version for free on PlayStation Plus) ... We thought it was better to have the game on PS3 without cross buy than not at all. "
