PS Vita: The Unmentioned Fail of E3 2012

At E3 2012, Sony was markedly quiet about holiday titles slated for the PS Vita. Sony’s lack of focus on the PS Vita was a major oversight for the company ahead of the holiday season. Instead of toting the banner of the core gaming handheld unit, the company dedicated way too much time to Wonder Book, a partnership with J.K. Rowling and Sony. (PS Vita, Tag Invalid)

Unmentioned? you gotta be kidding me

Some people need to learn that there is more to an event like E3 than just the conference...

seriously, if people were at E3 they would have seen tons of PSV games on showcase to try out.

If you watched the conference from an outside source like an online stream, then you most likely keep up with gaming news and would realise by now that there are tons of previews on PSV games that were at E3.

Yes, Sony should have probably shown a montage or something of PSV games, but to consider their conference to be the end-all of all things on gaming from Sony at E3 is really just a poor understanding of what an exhibition is.

They know full well that there's more to E3 than the opening press conference.

But if they kept that in mind, they couldn't write sensational articles.

They announced Assassin's Creed Liberation. One of the biggest franchises of the generation has an exclusive game coming to Vita this year. They did spend way too much time on Wonderbook, and I would have liked to have seen Black Ops Declassified gameplay, but I agree, there was big news for Vita at E3.

There was a total of 20 vita games on the show floor for people to try out

Sony had 1 hour and 15 minutes to show as much as they could... sure the wonderbook stuff dragged on way to long, and caused us all to facepalm/lol/flipdesk/smh at the same time.... but they showed a lot of ps3 games at the conference, and they do regret not adressing the vita much at their conference....

People do need to realize that there is more to e3 than the conferences... its when actual people get to play and develop impressions of games.... it's not conference done, e3 is done

Conferences are like the olympic lighting of the torch... they mark the start of the actual events

Here are some up coming vita games.... sony should have showed this trailer at there conference imo

I gotta agree here. Both handhelds - the Vita and 3DS - were pretty much kept in the corner during E3. Very few new games announced and very little stage time.

Keep in mind Nintendo had the Software Showcase, an hour-long show dedicated exclusively to the 3DS.

Don't act like that "showcase" wasn't completely miserable.

Yeah... Thanks to this conference I am even more excited for Castlevania and Luigi's Mansion.

Vita also had some great games at E3, too bad Sony didn't talked about it.

@xursz
Just because it didn't announced new games? At least they demonstrated some upcoming 3DS games.

The 3DS showcase made it worse. They showed off 5 games. It didn't give me much confidence that the 3DS was getting a lot of software support.

Chose not to express my opinion on the conference. I actually didn't think it was that great aside from the Paper Mario demonstration. I was merely presenting the facts, is all.

For all the hate Wonderbook has been getting, I actually hope it does well.
