Can FIFA, Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed save Vita?

In the wake of E3 in June serious questions were being asked about PlayStation Vita.

For all its whizz bang technology, high-end games and control schemes, the portable has yet to find its audience. And not just in the UK, but in Sony’s homeland of Japan, too.

So retailers looked to E3 to discover what Sony would do to transform the platform’s fortunes. Yet outside of a Call of Duty teaser, Vita was sidelined in favour of PS3. The trade wasn’t getting the answers it needed.

so who is getting Little Big Planet or Ragnarok Odyssey?

SandWitch1427d ago (Edited 1427d ago )

Ragnarok Odyssey
NFS MW
AC3L
All-Stars
Retro City Rampage
Smart As...
Persona 4: The Golden

That's my holiday list for Vita. I hope I'll have enough money for them. Might add Silent Hill, LBP, New Little King's Story or WRC to the list tho.

remanutd551427d ago

mine would be Little Big Planet, Ragnarok Odyssey, Ratchet and Clank Full Frontal Assault, Playstation All Stars and probably Assasins Creed Liberation.

For me just AC3L (really looking forward to this one - gameplay at GamesCom was great) and LBP (I'm a little bored with the franchise on PS3 but having it on the go should be great). After that I am really looking forward to Killzone and Warrior's Lair should it ever be released. I was looking forward to CoD but since the Resistance VITA guys do it, I am afraid it won't be that great but I'll be watching the reviews for it anyway.

Why is everybody forgetting about Need For Speed Most Wanted? It's being made by Criterion, and the Vita version is identical to the console version.

GribbleGrunger1427d ago (Edited 1427d ago )

No, it can't be saved. The Vita is dead and has been since launch. Haven't you been keeping up with the news on N4G? It's over, finished. It will be discontinued by years end... zzzzzz... Sorry, nodded off. I think I may have eaten too much cheese.

Anyway... I'm really looking forward to playing LBPVita this month. Trust me, this LBP is the best of them all and fits perfectly on the Vita.

I wonder which game will be saving the Vita in five years? I wonder which particular PS1 game will people suddenly want but isn't there? I wonder which sites will put out low reviews for LBPVita to lower the Metacritic score? It's exciting times ahead and I just can't wait to see what headlines we'll get.

Agreed. If the gaming industry was left in the hands of N4G doomsday articles there would be no more consoles for people to play on! I swear some of these "journalists" don't want gaming to succeed at all!

The Vita needs saving? I just finished Wipeout and put 74 hours into Persona 3. I have almost 50 games saved on my Vita and have been using it everyday since launch. If anyone needs saving it's the people writing up these Vita doomsday articles I see daily on N4G.

Viva La Vita

Can anything save this regurgitated shit called journalism?.

Perjoss1427d ago

Something has to be in trouble in the first place in order for it to be saved.

trickman8881427d ago

So what rock have you been living under? :/

Mustang300C20121427d ago

@perjoss

It is irrelevant if you are in denial if it is in trouble or not. Sony has admitted their issues but if you want to put you head in the sand again you don't matter if you do or not. Your not making the device.

krouse931427d ago

He may be buying it though, and in turn supporting it.

rpd1231427d ago

I don't think it needs saving, but really you put FIFA up there. There are tons of games that would sell so much better than that. Need For Speed, freaking Little Big Plant, and Persona 4 are just a few. And at this point, I doubt CoD will be selling as many as people though.

mafiahajeri1427d ago (Edited 1427d ago )

Well FIFA is IMO the best port on the vita. It's plays and looks identical to the console so yes a lot of people are looking forward to it and FIFA is as popular as cod and assasins creed so it has the right to there maybe even more so then some of those games. Your probably just not a fan of football you know the most beautiful game? Aswell as the most popular game in the world. I'm not assuming your American but they are the ones that underestimate the power of football. Also persona 4 sell more than FIFA? Lol! Funny.

I'm looking forward to assasins creed and lbp and Nfs the vita sdoesnt need saving in my book journalism does.

rpd1231427d ago

FIFA Soccer sold 300,000 worldwide. Persona 4 has only been released in Japan and has already sold 210,000 copies. FIFA 2012 sold 440,000 worlwide on the PSP. Persona 3 Portable sold 510,000 on the PSP. I think it's fair to say that Persona will outsell FIFA. I am American and I don't underestimate the power of soccer. I think that people who love it overestimate the power of it.

But yeah, journalism is going downhill and the Vita is pretty well off.

mafiahajeri1427d ago

So FIFA sold better overall? Thanks for proving my point :D

rpd1231427d ago

No it didn't. Persona 4 still hasn't been released in Europe and North America. Once it does, it will exceed FIFA's sales. And it outsold it before on PSP. Your math skills need work.
