Did Sony Deliver the Goods for Vita at E3 2012

From the feature article:

"It was obvious, without a next-gen console announcement coming, that in order for Sony to take E3 by storm, it needed to focus largely on the PlayStation Vita. I was one of many who felt that the company needed to deliver a strong lineup of games, and I seriously thought it needed to do so on the grand stage of E3 during its press conference. Ultimately, Sony didn’t exactly do what so many of us hoped it would. Instead, it showcased a strong collection of titles for the PlayStation 3, as well as some, well, not-so-strong titles." (E3, God of War: Chains of Olympus, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, New Little King's Story, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Snapshot, Sound Shapes)

For me they didn't - personally I need a GAME, the GAME to make me buy a PS Vita...

In the conference, I'd say no; on the show floor...kinda?

But why are we still analysing E3 anyway? It was more-or-less a dissapointment all round.

Regardless of platform or brand, I think we're done with E3 and we should be looking more towards the next shows and even the holidays... Here's hoping it's more interesting for all :)

Correct E3 was a huge disappointment all around...

This is.... odd. E3 was 2 months ago.

They didn't show anything on Vita at the conference except for Assassins' Creed: Liberation.
Other than that, all the Vita games were at the show floor, which is probably why not many noticed.

For me the didn't either. From lack of new games in the show, to no updates for PSOne games on Vita during or immediately the show, to almost no Vita games during an already dry summer (pun intended), to almost nothing for Vita on PSN, they just haven't done IT.

That being said they have done enough since I have a Vita but I've been enjoying the PSP more than my Vita games at the moment. If it wasn't for Uncharted GA, Unit 13, and Motorstorm RC my Vita itch wouldn't have been scratched but these 3 games are enough for me right now.

You should give Gravity Rush a try.

I was going to get Gravity Rush but bought Persona PSP and Dissidia 012 instead. I was really excited about Gravity Rush at first but was really wanting some RPG action. I will probably hold off on getting it or any new Vita games until after LPB Vita drops. The beta on LBP really sold me on that being the ultimate version of the game.

Kaz Hirai said they don't expect to make huge revenue from PS Vita but on PS3 that is why they treat the PS Vita platform like that.

I'll be picking one up the days FIFA '13 releases, still a good read and has me thinking, but I can wait til FIFA 13.

they delivered the good, since there was 25 vita games at their booth, but they forgot to show it off

But the general people don't know about them if they weren't shown in the big press conference. Not a smart move.
Hicken  +   1214d ago
E3 isn't FOR the general people, anyway. It's for the industry, and we just get to watch. Has everybody forgotten the days when it was a closed event and we knew nothing until AFTER it was over? Not like this was 20 years ago or anything...

Big fail in their presentation. Nothing they showed gave me incentive to buy one, and the lack of information actually made me wonder how hard Sony is supporting the Vita.

I think Vita will get a boost when Sony show off how it integrates with the PS4... fingers crossed, as I'd love to own one.

They should have had psvita games shown instead of wonderbook they shouldve just announced wonderbook at some other conference.
Jdoki  +   1214d ago

That Wonderbook segment took the wind out of an otherwise decent E3 presentation. Wonderbook needed 5 minutes max to get the point across.

They could have filled the time with so much Vita news!
