3 or 25 or 60 or even 200 titles in development for the vita and they didn't even showed us anything at e3. They couldn't even confirm the rumored Castlevania LOS2 or LBPKarting for the Vita. They could've focused on vita games for 25 mins and that's enough to make vita gamers and potential consumers to buy more. And now 10 million units? CODBODeclassified is not until winter says tretton and I doubt ac3liberation will even help to sell that "much" units. Vita need it's own GTA and GoW plus some MGS and Final Fantasy to sell. New (and improved and much better) Uncharted will also help. But if Sony really wants a boost, a new Monster Hunter ( not a port of 3ds) will definitely doi the job at least in japan.

You realize that E3 is an industry event where only bits and pieces are broadcast to the public?

While the CONFERENCE may have only shown a few titles, E3 itself (which officially started the day after the conference) has a lot more games to show.

Upcoming Vita titles include (but are not limited to):

Little Big Planet Vita
Dragon's Crown
Soul Sacrifice
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale
Sound Shapes
When Vikings Attack
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation
Madden NFL 13
Need For Speed Most Wanted
Sly Cooper Thieves in Time
FIFA Soccer 13
Warrior's Lair
Silent Hill Book of Memories
Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified
Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward
Super Monkey Ball Banana Splits
Persona 4 Golden
Smart As
Street Fighter X Tekken
Spy Hunter
LEGO Lord of the Rings
Ragnarok Odyssey
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
Gravity Rush
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
New Little King's Story
Jet Set Radio HD
Final Fantasy X HD
Zone of Enders

And much, much, more. In addition to those titles, E3 revealed that PS One titles, PS3 GAMES remote play, more cross-platform functions, etc. are coming to Vita this summer.

Not everything is shown at the conference but more is always shown on the show floor and otherwise before, during, and after E3.

Anyway, it's only 4 months into the device. There's still a lot of time for it to pick up speed.

Warrior's Lair, Jet Set Radio, Zone of Enders collection. Clean up in isle Pants!!! :D

I really want to see more on Warrior's Lair (formerly Ruin). Anything new on this title has dried up.

This line up (although could be better) is fine with me to be MORE than happy with my purchase.. Few key franchises may be missing now but Sony will not peak by putting out everything right away like Nintendo did.. Vita will grow in games and content endlessly.. I just hope that alot of eastern games make it stateside around the same time frame

TheTwelve2180d ago

E3 is a very long event. If you keep watching, there is plenty about the Vita at E3. You just looked at the keynote presentation.


EcoSos32181d ago

The way that is selling right now it wont even reach 5 million by next year, Sony really need to announce games for it.They only talk of like 4 out of like 50 or more that are coming out this year for it.

2fk2181d ago's sad the only game I would honestly buy is lbp and won't buy a vita just for that

NeoBasch2180d ago

Fucking Gravity Rush, sir. And Persona 4: The Golden. What the hell is wrong with you?

2fk2180d ago

No need for hostility's my opinion sir...look at your agrees no one seems to acknowledge you sir. Peace.

WeskerChildReborned2181d ago

What i would like to see is a good lineup of PS Vita games and a price drop as well.

DigitalAnalog2181d ago

I highly doubt it. But then again, that's what gamescom is all about, it's a Get-out-jail-free card to implement the important stuff. And please, for the love of god, don't give that ridiculous f*cking intro montage ever again.

PirateThom2181d ago

I thought it had ended three different times... then it just kept going.

Haha1232181d ago (Edited 2181d ago )

Vita is in the same position as the PS3 when launched

People waiting for price cut
People waiting for exclusives not ports

10 million in first year is wishful thinking

WeskerChildReborned2181d ago

Yea i think $150 for a PS Vita WiFi would be reasonable.

NeoBasch2180d ago (Edited 2180d ago )

$150 for a mini PS3. Yep, that's reasonable. Wait a year or two if that's your sweet spot. I can see them cutting it to $200, but no lower. At least for a good while. At this rate, they'll be coming out at TGS and apologizing for the "lack" of games. They could always have more though. So I won't complain.

metsgaming2181d ago

They will need a pretty great gamescom then. Or a shocking TGS that gets the Japan market in a frenzy, like Monster Hunter.
