Jack Tretton comments on the Playstation Vita and its E3 showing, confirming that over 60 new Playstation Vita titles will launch "within the year."
How many of them are console ports
Honestly doesn't matter to me, I love console ports. Playing them on a handheld is like a totally different experience for me. Plus you have the game anywhere you want it, not just confined in your room. Also for the most part, Vita ports look almost just as good as the console version. Take a look at Blazblue, MvC3, Disgaea 3, Metal Gear HD.
Why would you want ports? It is a new system entirely? Why would you spend 30-50 bucks on a game you already own for big screen TV. I'm not gonna tell you how to spend your money and if it makes you happy go for it but the majority won't buy a port to a game when the superior version is already available.
@ApolloAdams - Well just about all PSV games are 39.99. Which in most cases is less than the console version depending on how long it's been out. Also, there are times when the Vita version has extra stuff, take Mortal Kombat, Blazblue, or Disgaea 3 for example (packing in all or almost all DLC and extra functionality). If it's a game I already loved, I might just want to support the developer, plus I can play that game I loved anywhere I want. See how that turns into a pretty good deal? That's my point of view really...
Ever since I had a 4.3 inch smartphone mobile gaming has introduced me into a whole lot of ways games could be played whenever or wherever. An I think that is the direction where the PSV is heading- to be a multi-tasking & connected game machine. The internet browser, skype & YouTube apps are very important to that functioanlity. The 3DS should also try to be that.
Why weren't they shown instead of "WONDERBOOK" o_O I want some Metal Gear, Monster Hunter, God of War, Final Fantasy, Gran Turismo, etc...
I know we all want all these games now or else the Vita is doomed. But did the PS3, 360, PS2, Wii, DS, PSP, 3DS all get there known IP's within 4 months of its life? NO.
I've been think about something that people might disagree on. What if Sony is making the announcements on exclusives for PS3 & PS Vita by region showcases. Think about it we still have Gamescom & Tokyo Game Show this year. It could be the fact that Sony wanted to focus on american games at E3 2012 than foriegn games. Think about it. Guerrilla Games is from Europe right. Sony could be saving their game for PS3 at Gamescom. Sony Cambridge is from Europe as well so expect Killzone Vita there. Quantic Dream confirmed last week they were making a Vita title too. A lot of people seem to think Agent is from Rockstar in North America but its not. The people making Agent is a Rockstar Studio from Europe so Agent might show up at Gamescom. Sony could be saving games like Syphon Filter, Ratchet & Clank, Socom, & many more for Vita at Gamescom but the twist is that Sony First Party developer making exclusives for Vita are actually from Europe and the American First Party for Sony are focusing on PS3 & Move. Tokyo Game Show could see the daylight of Versus XIII and The Last Guardian because those games are Japan soul made games unlike Final Fantasy XIII. Versus XIII was said to be in Full Developement last September so don't you think in a years time there would be press footage at Tokyo Game Show. The Last Guardian is going to be at Tokyo Game Show because back in February they said it was making progress close to being shown as demo. We might also see Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Monster Hunter, Final Fantasy Type 0, and more like Level 5 and Atlus announce games for Vita at Tokyo Game Show. The year is not done for Sony people just have to be patient and games will come to PS Vita & PS3.
i was pretty dissapointed with that conference, i understand if they are holding back on PS3 games so that they launch with the "PS4", but this was suppose to be the conference that they were suppose to show the Vita games. instead, they only showed off 3 games. yes they did show that were finally going to be able to play our PS1 games this summer, and its going to get a few more apps here and there, but still, such a let down... still hopeful for TGS though, Japan is a mobile centric region after all, so hopefully we get to see lots of vita games there that will eventually come to the west.
I hope so.
If there are over 60 new vita titles... what's stopping them to show or announce at least 10 new titles? C'mon announce something already! It would generate some sales from consumers knowing that there are future killer apps for the vita instead of leaving us with only three
COD AC Sly PS All Stars Jet Set Radio Kickbeat When Vikings Attack PulzAR Guacamelee All them games got announced in the last month. Never satisfied.
Wait, Jet Set is coming to Vita?
I'm mostly talking about E3 here with their poor showing of vita titles this year.
Good. Keep 'em coming. *thumbs up*
WOOHOOOOO. That's what I wanted to hear!
Black ops, playstation all stars and killzone for vita
60 new?! Hopefully they mean 'new' and not ps1 titles or ports.... genuinely new games... I'd be suprised and excited to see 60 new games to be honest between now and the end of the year for the Vita... I'm skeptical, but hopeful... we need some more stuff for our Vitas.. Burning Skies has been fun and I'm sure next week that Gravity Rush will keep me occupied, but beyond that, it's kinda up in the air... I know we're getting PS all stars, Call of Duty and assassins creed, but it would be nice to have more options.. : )
