Sony wants Flash on Vita Sony hopes abandonment of Flash for Mobile software won't stop it from running on Vita.
Adobe recently announced that it was ceasing the development of Flash for mobile devices, conceding that the HTML 5 standard is more than enough to do the same job, and also beats it with cross-industry backing.

The move came after Adobe had fought to make its software more efficient and secure on mobile devices, after then-Apple CEO Steve Jobs questioned its reliability on mobile devices.

Still, Flash is used with a huge amount of web services and Sony is still hoping that it will be able to bring Flash support to the PlayStation Vita handheld console. Muneki Shimada, head of software development at Sony Division 2, said the company is still in negotiations with Adobe over the possibility.
