9 games Sony needs to sell more PS Vitas

PSU takes a look at the games Sony needs to help sell more Vitas. It's hard to ignore the relatively slow pace for Vita game releases, but these titles and popular franchises could just help Sony reach that 10 million unit by end of fiscal year goal. (PS Vita, Tag Invalid)

Elder Scrolls will never happen. I love the games, but Bethesda seriously does not like Sony, that's just evident. Borderlands 2 could happen though, there's a petition up that everyone needs to go sign to get Sony to make it happen!

It depends on how quickly they can implement Gaikai on the Vita. If they can do it pretty quickly we'll be playing the PC version, which is the least buggy version

What worry me able that list is that about a quarter of those games are coming to the main competitor, the 3DS.
Call of Duty 3DS is coming, a big Kingdom hearts just came out and Monster Hunter 4 is a 3DS exclusive right now.
Those other games need to appear to boost vita sales to 10 million, by then however 3DS will be at like 22 million or so, but I don't think anyone is expecting Vita to beat 3DS, I mean 3DS just needs some shooters to round out the larger library, plus it has almost a year head start.
I personally like both Vita and 3DS and want see them do well. I just got a PS3 so I can't get a Vita now. If they drop price I'll pick it up.

it needs more games made for it only, not just the back catalog, period...

ports will never sell good, i hope publishers got it

brand new Gran Turismo (with career mode)
new GTA
new Resident Evil
new Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest
more racing and sport games for european gamers
more FPSs and action games for american gamers
more JRPGs and adventures for japanese gamers

i'm glad they covered american market for holidays with CoD and Assassins creed but what about us? i don't want new NFS because there is no singleplayer

Quite a few developers haven't shown up with projects yet that were in the original NGP dev list... http://psp2roundup.blogspot... - wonder if they'll show up soon?

i am glad i never bought vita and sony not received my money :)
when you guys get more intelegent or older you will understand how cool it is to stop and think for a while and not become a victim of advertising or artificial hype.

That's the reason why I didn't get a 3DS at launch because I knew that a year later Nintendo would release an XL at a lower price point than the original.

Thank god I didn't buy into Nintendo's hype and ads for the 3DS not to mention that the 3DS had a horrible launch line up.

Thank goodness I dedicded to be a real gamer and stopped bickering by enjoying Vita and 3DS.

You misspelled intelligent. That being said though, the same can be said for the 3ds and really, both apply. Neither one was worth purchase at launch, but this fall, only one will finally be worth a purchase imo. You decide which one...
Ramas  +   1115d ago
english my third language so apologies for gramar sir :)
What i ment is that its cool to look back and be happy that you not wasted your hard earned money even though sony tried very hard to pull it out from customers, same for 3DS ofcourse

That would be a spelling error, not grammar.

When you stop generalizing you will understand how cool it is to know what you're talking about.

I bought my Vita launch week- not the first day, unfortunately- and have had nothing but good things to say about it. I haven't had a PSP in seven years, so even IF there were only one or two games worth playing on the Vita- and there are dozens- I still have lots of titles to catch up on. Remote playing my PS1 games- primarily Final Fantasy and Legend of Dragoon, but also Castlevania and Vagrant Story- is huge, because I had just started new playthroughs of about four different PS1 games right before the Vita came out.

And there are plenty of Vita games to enjoy, too. Unit 13, Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Resistance, Wipeout, and others are lots of fun. And that's not even including the ports like BlazBlue(personal favorite).

To say that all early adopters were unintelligent or too young and were simply following the crowd is arrogant and pretentious.

And wrong.

Im 36 and enjoy my Vita very much actually.

Perhaps when you grow up you will realize that everyone is different and your opinions is about as valuable as a 3 month old turd.

Some of those games are being made.. Im sure lots more will come too in due time.. The vita is still an infant & many companies are prolly working on NX GEN games that require their full attention at the moment.. Vita is pretty good now & has more coming.. When its dry, get a psp game you missed out on.. Ive been playing the unlocked symphony of the night on it as of late from the $15 castlevania psp game..

Hopefully Sony is paying attention and getting to work on Borderlands 2 now as well as other highly requested titles.
