damn smart phones are killing core gaming.. I have an iphone & will NEVER buy a game from the store unless i have no choice.. I refuse to accept touch only inputs..

I always have my smartphone and Vita with me. When I get bored I play a fun game like LBP instead of Angry Birds.

Nobody I know owns a Vita, I bought it only for Uncharted just cos I can easily afford it, otherwide I can see why nobody buys it.

they NEED GTA or just kiss it goodbye, Assassin Creed is not a system seller, COD looks like crap, Bioshock is ???

@Red Orange Juice

Are you high or something? Assassin's Creed II sold 10 million copies. Assassin's Creed Bloodlines was one of the games bundled with the PSP, Assassin's Creed 3 is being bundled with the new PS3, and Liberation is being bundled with the Vita. The only games that you ever bundle with consoles are ones that will sell consoles, or shitty ones that won't sell otherwise. Assassin's Creed is not the latter.

And the PS Vita has so many good games on it. Uncharted was fun, Gravity Rush is awesome, LBP is amazing. There are so many more too. Plus Killzone looks like it will be great and will definitely move systems. The same goes for AC Liberation. And CoD is a system seller no matter how crappy it looks.

rpd, you have examples of system-selling portable Assassin's Creed games? Any numbers?

You don't.

rpd1232148d ago


Do you have any numbers that say otherwise? It's common sense. If a game is extremely popular and has a large fan base, then it will sell systems. Hence Call of Duty, Uncharted 3, and Assassin's Creed 3 being bundled with the PS3 and Halo 4 and Forza being bundled for the Xbox 360.

The PS Vita should have come with a Cell Phone feature day 1.

teens now a days like the Internet, music, videos, and more importantly "Talking on the Phone" instead of playing video games on the go!

iPhone vs. Vita.......iPhone wins everytime!

Sony needs a PS Vita cell Phone app ASAP!

I wanna see sonic adventure 2 on a psp vita...They could easily do it.

Vitalogy2148d ago

There is no such thing as a "psp vita", but yeah Sonic would be a good game to have on my Vita.

Grand theft auto 3 on IOS - great game but terrible on IOS. I never play 'apps', they're mainly crap.

Touch gaming is lifeless. It's in no way as satisfying as pressing a button.

This could spread into other studios switching to smartphones.
