The PlayStation Vita might not be doomed, but it certainly needs more games. We think Japan may be the key to the Vita’s success – but only if Sony takes the right steps.
Vita just needs the media to shut up.
We have Ragnorok Odyssey,Dokuro,Phantasy Star Online 2, Persona 4 Golden and Soul Sacrifice on the way. All Japanese games. Not too bad if you ask me.
YS Celceta http://www.youtube.com/watc... and God Eater 2 http://www.youtube.com/watc... are looking awesome too!
the media makes me sick these days it's white they say it's black. Doesn't concern only games but any other subject. That's why i NEVER trust the media i check things for myself. Vita has a great lineup, I was was a bit worried there will be mostly ports on it but Sony showed us at GamesCom that's not true and games like Tearaway confirm that. The same media that said Sony NGP is the best ever a year ago when it was revealed, regardless of the lineup which is one of the greatest ever seen on handheld or home console.
Yeah, that doesn't sound fanboyish at all.
Some ppl like Hatsune Miku but its not my cup of tea.. Its always good for there to be options tho.. If sony doesnt want to risk distributing japanese software that might not sell, they should at least put english text in them & put em on the network like theyve been doing w PS1 titles.. Vita is region free however, some games dont have english subtitles & itl be really hard to navigate menus.. im not complaining tho cuz so far all games i seen that were interesting in japan are getting localized.. Im very happy with my vita & its only getting better
I couldnt agree more!
Technically yes the Vita while I adore it just hasn't been as captivating. Looking at some of the things from the keynote when it was first about to appear wow'd me. I guess I'm just waiting for some of those things to land. I know in a few days (perhaps a month or two time) my tune will change with the release of several games for it like Ragnarok Odyssey but as of now Eh. I'd kind of like to see some RPGs with real-time combat now that would be nice!
I say the PS3 needs more Japanese games. And Japanese games other than RPG's.
Oke, Sony give the game in english and put them on PSN ( NO Psn region Eu/NA/JApan but an Universal PSN All games in Japan and english)
That's what TGS was for. They had plenty of games for the Japanese audience.
The damn vita just needs more games period!
FF type 0 please.
Everybody needs the media to shut up. I wish they would. It's a bunch of people who don't know what they are talking about, trying to tell everybody " How it is "... They have no facts anymore. It's all opinion. We used to call that the Sun.
I love my Vita regardless. Despite I recently upgraded my old 3DS to the XL. I still adore my Vita more. It's just an amazing piece of hardware overall. Yes the software portion needs to pick up a little I would agree nonetheless. But then again, games are sometimes subjective too. A good game for this person may not be the same for another. Just like thou many out there always claim that 3DS has extremely strong software line ups when compared to Vita. But to me the amount of games that I truly enjoyed among both platform are almost the same. Considering 3DS had more than a year head start, that should consider a low number. No I am not bashing neither of the platform before Ninty fanboy going to start bashing on me. I had my 3DS at launch and I am part of the 3DS Ambassador too. No benefits for me to criticize either since I have both. And if I dont like 3DS i wouldnt have upgrade to XL either. But at least as far as my personal experience goes, I just enjoyed my Vita more overall. Maybe because I can do more with it. I dont know. So I still love my Vita regardless how the internet / media try to destroy it by bashing it.
>I recently upgraded my old 3DS to the XL. That's why I don't like the Nintendo's approach. I prefer waste my money for games, not for constant upgrade. That's why I have Vita and waiting for 3DS with built-in analog stick and large screen.
If there's one Japanese game that would kick off the Vita it's Monster Hunter. It singlehandedly turned things around for the PSP in Japan, so why not the Vita?
Ask Capcom.. Hopefully MH Clones would do enough for the VITA in the near future (Ragnarok, God Eater 2, Souls)
They won't return my calls... But honestly I'd take those three over 1 Monster Hunter, although I don't think they can match MH's significance in Japan. The combined sales numbers for previous installments aren't anywhere near one Monster Hunter on PSP.
If it was that simple, wouldn't all systems release more Japanese games?
RPG's sell consoles & Handhelds
