Games on the show floor @ E3 http://forums.gametrailers.... B*tch please
And how many of those games are system sellers? Who do you know is dying to spend $250 to play Foosball and When Vikings Attack?
How many game journalists were dying to get a free Usher concert??
@Ron_Danger Dance Central is pretty much the defining franchise for Kinect and has helped it sell quite a bit...although not to the core gamer crowd but it's impact is still significant.
yeah, and that's not NEARLY all of them. people need to stop allowing the media to brainwash them and actually take a reality check. edit: @Logicwins. so NOW we have to have system sellers to prove the Vita has plenty of games? perhaps when it DOES have system sellers people will argue that they're not games they like personally. people are just jumping on the anti Vita bandwagon. and you can't pick 2 games to prove that people won't buy a system for them when there's dozens and dozens of different games for different people
My calculator has 250 different games on it. The point is, just because a platform has plenty if games doesn't mean that people want to play them. Out of the 3DS, PS3, 360, PC, Wii U, and Vita, Vita currently has the worst gaming lineup at E3. Thats clearly an issue. This isn't about jumping on any anti Vita bandwagon..this is about having EYES and not being delusional. Even Sony admitted that they didn't do a good job presenting Vita at their conference.
30 new VITA games on the show floor not to mention PS1 support.Plus the games they talked about even BEFORE the conference.Ignore the ignorant gaming community They don't listen or read. They just jump to conclusions. Because they didn't announce all the games they have coming for the VITA on stage that means they automatically don't exist. *rolls eyes*.
well said.. it wouldve been nice to make some time on stage but that doesnt mean they werent there.. Soul Sacrifice being localized is all i needed to know to stay happy this year but i got at least 10 more games to look forward to on it after they were shown on the floor..
Give us Monster Hunter already!
I know right? That alone will push a lot of systems, too bad it gets little love.
This. It would feel so solid on the vita.
just like the PS3 early months, mediocre web sites look for hits with easy flame bait
They could have easily cut about 5 minutes off of that wonderbook and at least showed the montage they posted on YouTube today of Vita games. Personally im getting one when FFX remake hits but others might not have seen a game they're interested in since all the games were on the show floor.
C'mon give me a break. The 3DS took a whole year for it to get the games it is getting right now. Did anyone actually listen to Jack T. at the presser when he said there are over 60 games coming before the year is over. Yeah i understand that we wanna see games for it, but unlike the consumers who are pretty impatient about stuff. Sony has a plan for the Vita that they are abiding to & when games are ready they will show them. Sony will support this device the same way they have all their platforms (PSP was pirated to hell so too cut losses they prematurely abandoned it at least in the west)...they have a 10 year plan. I bet all these journalists that are complaining are the same people that will give whatever games coming out obscenely low scores just cause they can. Besides E3 is NOT the only game event of the year so chill people there is still Gamescon & TGS to showcase the Vita. However if there is an absence of material at these than it is time to revolt.
*Claps* Someone with a brain and understands the industry.
Even if they did show a million games, would it make a difference? 1) pre vita release- complaints if it is $300 or more they wouldnt buy it and $250 would be amazing for the tech. Post vita release- $250 is too much 2) Biggest line up for launch plus minis and tons of games within 1st year. Post vita - not enough although there are tons of psp, ps1, minis abd lots of vita games. 3) ignoring games which were announced 4) ignoring gamescon and tgs this year for possible announcements 5) ignoring possibility of price drop in the coming minths leading to xmas This e3 was more about downplaying for Sony and MS due to the WiiU as they wanted to see what Nintendo does and it looks like Gamescom and TGS will be bigger abd better.
There's a lot of quality games in jet set radio, oddworld sw, ps battle royale etc. but what vita gamers wants is some huge announcement like GTA, FF or Monster Hunter hell even a confirmation of Castlevania LOS 2 would've been huge. I really do hope we get to see what we want at gamescom and TGS. TGS will definitely deliver with more JRPG's.
"but what vita gamers wants is some huge announcement like GTA, FF or Monster Hunter hell even a confirmation of Castlevania LOS 2 would've been huge. " I think what your pointing out is true but on the same token: so COD was not a big announcement? so assassins creed 3 was not a big announcement? Maybe your talking about 1st party?...but don't many people already say: "Sony 1st party do not sell well right?" It's clear as day, People want Sony to drop the Price on the PSVita, because they do not think the PSVita is not worth $250.00 or higher. I am really starting to doubt Software is the issue, 40+ games already + back catalog of over 250+ PSP games+ back catalog of PSP mini's+ new AR games. All offered in launch window and the PSVita is less than 5 months on the market? with 60 more on the way? it's the Price just many do not want to admit it..and because Sony stuck to their gun's and not dropped the price due to pressure. Many are still complaining for Sony to drop the Price. But using the Excuse of it has no real system seller's.
@ joeorc - maybe it's the memory card issue, I've heard a lot of people complain about that. An 8GB card free may be what is needed (though personally 16GB is the minimum IMO).
Yea it has games coming but nobody would know that from their conference, thats the point. I want the vita to sell so we get alot of games. If sony only shows 2-3 games people will not want it. It needed at least a highlight reel or better yet a dedicated conference like the 3ds.
Like i said they could have a Vita dedicated show at Gamescon or TGS or like when it was revealed its very own show. In Japan the Vita gets these periodically shown series which i currently forget the name of that show what games are being made by the developers themselves. That show is where Keiji Inafune teased his game Soul Sacrifice. Yes E3 is important to the North American gamers to see what stuff is coming out but in the age of internet the other conferences are just as important. Just like with the PS3 if we were not patient with that than we would never gotten games like Heavy Rain, TLOU, MGS4, Demon's Souls. So be patient & Sony will indeed deliver.
Worrying future for vita. Needs some killer system sellers.
It'll be fine, the tech is all there it obviously just needs more games.
I'm still enjoying my vita but yeah, the launch library is running out of steam for me.
All I do is point and laugh. "Gamers" just dont get it. I am half tempted to sell everything I own and pick up pottery. I am sick of sales this, numbers that. Just be patient. Sony isnt going to leave the vita to die. The games are coming. No one is forcing you to buy one. Ill be laughing when they announce GTA, MGS, FF and other big titles for it...
Pfftt....have you seen the Pottery numbers in the latest NPD...it's obviously not a kiln seller.
Guess TGS is the place to be.
You obviously didnt see the 3DS presentation XD.
I cant really say e3 killed my hopes for the Vita. The fact is that announcements are great and all but at the end of the day the only thing they do is tell you whats coming. Last time I check FF versus was announced at e3 6 years ago. E3 was never gonna make or break the vita, what will is the current lack of new engaging software. They should try to hold people over with new psn games that are made for the vita.
If u guys want a great handheld to play on get a nintendo 3ds.
You're missing the point - Vita is a great console.
Vita has been out for few months and it's actually impressive how titles are being produced at this rate. You didn't see the PS3 get many good games in just 4 months when it was released, look at it now. Good things come to those who wait.
