The PS Vita Games, Updates and Reveals Sony Needs to Show During Gamescom 2012

DualShock Nexus: After coming off the heels of a mostly PS3 centered E3 and Comic-Con, Sony has announced a strong PS Vita focused press conference at Gamescom this year. Here are the things we think Sony should talk about August 14th. (BioShock, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, Gamescom 2012, Guerrilla Games, Industry, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet 2, Naughty Dog, PS Vita, Sony)

yeah, but also i think they should focus on gaiki and what that is going to do for the vita (if not yet too soon).

i hope they show something new and cool/incredible that they've done with ARgaming too that would be killer.

blackops is very anticipated, i cant with to have a (hopefully) cod MP online experience in the palm of my hands.
ResistanceBS is ok but it's running too dry too soon.

Could not agree more about gaikai. How many more games will they make for the vita if the foreseeable future is all cross play. Wont all games be playable on vita. What's the point of making ports. New games like call of duty however is very welcomed.

They just blogged about the buyout on their site.
And so far they still promote games for all devices.

You can disagree with me now..

I don't think sales will hit 0 as long as there are new games and new ip's for the vita. I really want to see what each of the 1st party devs are working on for the vita.

Little Big Planet release date, Call of Duty, Killzone gameplay videos and more details, at least 2 New games and new features for psvita, sony needs to focus on the psvita now

No Killzone Vita??? D; Come on Sony please just say something about this game. Either way COD: Declassified will definitely keep me busy.
vickers500  +   1297d ago
Borderlands 2 vita. I'd buy a vita just for that.

Hope they announce and then implement that same day the ps1 emulator for the Vita.It is long over due. Maybe a major firmware update that day.

Well E3 was pretty disapointing for Vita since it was barely talked about so it's about time for Sony to redeem theirsevles and bring some focus to the Vita and maybe announce a huge title for it.
Hicken  +   1296d ago
There was so much more to E3 than the press conferences. By now, everyone on this site HAS to know that. And the extra stuff on display showed Sony has more than just a little bit of focus on the Vita.

Monster hunter.

Im hoping for a Killzone vita announcement. That was the whole reason i bought a vita!
Xof  +   1296d ago
Really any game would do it. For North America, at least. Sony has been showing us zero love lately.

Hell, at least bring over Project Diva. I can't believe how assinine they were to show it off at E3, and then be like, "oh, you want this awesome game coming out this summer? Too bad! Have some NOGAMES instead!"

Seriously, the Vita was doing great up till June, and then Sony just said "fuck it." It's like they're trying to intentionally sabotage the thing.

how often do blockbuster games or games wowrth buying for that matter release during the summer?
Xof  +   1292d ago
Well, I mentioned it in another thread, but "blockbuster games or games worth buying" are being released this summer on every single major gaming platform, including the "obsolete" PSP and NDS.

The Vita has weaker line-up this summer than the 360, Wii, and PSP--all consoles that most gamers consider effectively "dead."

It's not a good situation--and it's not limited solely to summer. Between June and December there are only a handful of Vita games with release dates in North America--I think it's a total of 7 or 8 games. And of that handful, the only two worth looking at are Ragnarok (end of August) and AC3L (end of October).

This is a half-year long stretch of far, far too little.

And it's made worse by shoddy PSN offerings. Where are the digital PSP games that were supposed to come in a deluge to justify Vita's lack of b/c? Where is the PS1 support that was advertised at launch?

It's pitiful. And it's stupid. And it's a perfect example of every other failed Sony launch... only worse.

This has happened too many times to be coincidence. Or even incompetence. The only explanation remaining is that Sony is intentionally trying to sabotage the Vita.
