Anyway I'm getting a Vita soon.
They've had PC releases in the past, so I'm sure they're not going into this blind. Also, just because 1-6 has been announced for PC, that doesn't mean it won't be coming to consoles. I think they're following in thatgamecompany's footsteps. Both are studios that got their start through Sony. Both have been successful enough to be able to fund independent development and go multiplatform.
I don't see how that's a bad thing. And I don't think they're "ignoring" anyone. It's doubtful this game will remain a PC exclusive. But by building momentum on PC first, they can enter into their respective deals with the console platforms with some firm footing (a proven audience, financial independence, etc). Seems smart to me.
I'm a huge fan of their games. I don't see how a fan would see this as "ignoring" them. If anything, this works to fans' benefit. Increased audience. Increased production values. Increased support. Etc.
