“PS VITA haz some gamez”: 25 titles to look forward this holiday

MetaV: So here we are, stepping into the fourth quarter of 2012. It’s pretty much every gamer’s most anticipated time of the year. It’s the season, when rainy and gloomy days become our favorite. And it’s the season, when we punish our wallets very much. In this post you will find a total of 25 PS VITA games that are currently stated to release this quarter. Hopefully this pack of information will help you to better understand what’s coming out on Sony’s handheld and polish your wish list. (PS Vita)

Update 2 more games (Dokuro and Ratchet&Clank) added to the list. Now there are 27 games in total.

in the next few months there are going to be so many great games for ALL the systems.... Personally, I can't wait for:

Ragnarok Odyssey
Call of Duty
Assassins Creed
Sonic Racing

Code of Princess
Mario Sticker Star

Halo 4

LBP Karting

and of course, the Wii U!

I love being inundated with great games all at once... It's definitely a great time to be a gamer!

Why dont you buy pasbr for ps3 seeing as you get the vita version for free that way. So far what ive known its only first party title's doing the cross buy.

I don't think Sega is honoring that cross buy promotion...

Be cool if they did, though...

Especially since Sonic racing is budget priced, already..

edit: oh, i see you edited it.... yeah, I'm probably going to get the ps3 version of psabr so i get the free vita version.

I thought it worked both ways. If you buy the Vita version you also get the PS3 version and visa versa. Or am I misinformed?
one2thr  +   1148d ago
You forgot Need for Speed Most Wanted

You forgot Persona 4 Golden! My most anticipated November release!
Highlife  +   1147d ago
wait a min you are a multiple console owner who just enjoys gaming? This can't be. Not here. What is happening to N4G.

Nice to see.
SilentNegotiator  +   1147d ago
People who go into articles for a specific platform and say "I'm going to enjoy ALL the consoles! YA GAMING!" are fishing for bubbles. If the guy was being genuine, he'd just say "I'm really looking forward to these games: (list)"

And stop with this "A gamer who isn't a fanboy on N4G, ZOMG!" crap. The only reason it seems that way is because half of the articles are antagonistic and there's always one or two people who start fires in the other half.
SwiftArsonist  +   1148d ago
good article. the ps vita got potential. and i believe we gonna see some great games next year
LordMe  +   1148d ago
I am only getting Ragnarok Oddessy, Persona 4 Golden, and ASBR (via crossbuy)

Thats all the games I plan on getting for the rest of the year. Nothing else (right now) on my radar, might have something else pop up though.
Wolfbiker  +   1147d ago
Same here.

Although I might check out New Little Kings Story too.
noxeven  +   1148d ago
Zero last escape and Ragnarok are day one for me
Protagonist  +   1148d ago
I´m also lookinjg out for that title but my most anticipated title is Persona 4: The Golden.
forestfrog  +   1148d ago
Man , such a sweet time for vita owners, you know what? I'm between consoles at the moment , but after seeing this list i m thinking the vita may be the only gaming device I need!
GiantFriendlyCrab  +   1148d ago
Retro City Rampage
wastedcells  +   1148d ago
Yes! I agree. Word is its coming out Oct 9th.
AlucardFury  +   1148d ago
I really wish this little guy takes off for 2 things:
1) I want Nintendo to have competition.
2) I might buy if it has enough games that I like.
Losyak  +   1148d ago
So, he basically listed ALL games coming out for PS Vita.
ForRealz17  +   1148d ago
So you're telling me that 25 upcoming games for this holiday season and for a "dead" platform isn't a lot?

***"Dead" being said sarcastically.
Losyak  +   1147d ago
Dont be putting words in my mouth, I never called it dead. I love vita. In fact I own one and am typing this message up with one. It just seems a little misleading, he shoulda just called it "All games coming out tyis holiday season.
mt  +   1148d ago
Snapshot looks interesting.
josephayal  +   1148d ago
its funny how people complain that the vita gets the exact same games as the ps3....seriously people dont you see what sony is doing? theyr definately making way for the new ps4 the "Orbis" and replacing the ps3 with the vita SLOWLY. when the Orbis comes out you wont need to worry about not having your ps3 anymore because youll have your good oll Vita wich most definately will conect with the Orbis
one2thr  +   1147d ago
That would be awesome on the behalves of vita and orbis but sad for ps3
Xof  +   1148d ago
The Vita has games. Especially in Japan.

The anger isn't about games. It's about SCEA failing to support, or really even trying to support the Vita, period. From Gravity Rush in early june all the way up until this past week or so, the Vita has had zero noteworthy retail releases and virtually zero digital support from the PSN.

The most exciting piece of Vita content in the past five months has been... playstation 1 b/c. And it's not even 100% of the digital PS1 games. You know--that feature that we were supposed to have at launch.

We all know the Vita has games. We all know that this holiday season will contribute quite a lot to that library, particularly for non-importers.

But does this make up for SCEA's glaring ineptitude?

Good god no.

Not unless you're a raging fanboy, and they never saw any problem in the first place.
YoungPlex  +   1148d ago
Man dude, this is exactly what I'm talking about but never worded it correctly. You sir get a bubble up from me! Well said! So rare it is when a fan speaks so wisely without trolling. Well said!
Soldierone  +   1148d ago
Only games I'm really planning on buying for my Vita is Assassins Creed (choosing Vita version over Ps3 for the time being) and PSABR, maybe.
OrangeStar  +   1148d ago
There's some good stuff there. I can't wait for COD Vita and Assassin‘s Creed 3: Liberation. But I'd sure like:
Borderlands Vita
GTA Vita
Killzone Vita
Borderlands 2 Vita
Uncharted 2 Vita
The Force Unleashed 1 and 2 Vita
Borderlands 3 Vita
VitaOwner  +   1148d ago
you should def sign this petition to bring Borderlands to Vita
DarkHeroZX  +   1147d ago
Killzone is coming for vita. But if you mean 1-3 then yes!
tiffac008  +   1148d ago
I'm looking forward to Persona 4: The Golden and Assassins Creed 3 Liberation. :)
TiberusX87  +   1148d ago
Persona 4: Golden. I can't fracking wait!
homer  +   1147d ago
If the wait is killing you, you can always buy the version that is already out. That's the best part about vita games, you don't have to own a vita to play them.
kupomogli  +   1147d ago
Great. I can sell my Vita and still play great games like Wipeout 2048, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Unit 13, Gravity Rush, and Little Big Planet 2.

Thanks for the advice.

homer  +   1147d ago
Yes, you actually can play LittlebigPlanet 2 on ps3.
DivineAssault  +   1148d ago
Does 3DS have a list like this? i wana see one without 1st party in it so i can see its support
kupomogli  +   1147d ago
It does, it's just all shovelware except for Code of Princess.
DivineAssault  +   1147d ago
ya, your right.. ppl claim vita has no support cuz of its small install base but 3ds is like 10x worse, literally.. despite having 20+ million units out there.. smh
Hicken  +   1148d ago
Persona 4
Jet Set Radio
New Little King's Story
Ragnarok Odyssey
Sine Mora
Smart As..
Zero Escape

All appeal to me. Need for Speed and Assassin's Creed are both "maybes."

Either way, that's a lot of games.
Veneno  +   1147d ago
If i make enough money by new years i will get that AC Lib bundle. I cant wait any longer with all these awesome games coming out.
Moncole  +   1147d ago
I have Snapshot on Steam and its very hard to use a controller for the game so I dont know how you will do speed runs on levels.

Although a January 2013 release for Japan, I'm also looking forward to WRC3. If done well it should be the best handheld rally game to date, and an excellent driving game for the Vita (of which there are few at present).
vikingland1  +   1147d ago
What is PSASBR? Can some one hook me up with a link of some game footage or a trailer?
GribbleGrunger  +   1147d ago
here's some footage and I'm sure you'll know what it is when you see it: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
vikingland1  +   1147d ago
LOL now I feel pretty dumb. I never thought about the acronym. Thanks tho.
homer  +   1147d ago
I will getting 3 of those games on the ps3 and perhaps 2 of the other console iterations on the ps3 as well.
Retro City Rampage
Ratchet and Clank
Jet Set Radio HD
Assassins Creed 3 as oppossed to Liberation
and maybe Black Ops 2 instead of Declassified. Depends on how good Zombies mode is this time around.
PersonaCat  +   1147d ago
Bit of an update for anyone looking forward to Ragnarok Odyssey; the game has been pushed back to October 30th according to amazon
