So, you're buying a PS Vita, A guide to the best games to get

With massive games like Black Ops: Declassified, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, sales of Vita should be heading skywards in the coming weeks and over Christmas.

But once you've got stuck on, or tired of, your shiny new game, there are hundreds of other titles you can download for the Vita across various categories including minis, PlayStation Mobile games, augmented reality titles, plus PS one and PSP classics. So, if you're new to the world of PS Vita (or are planning on getting one) here's my personal list from across the board. (Gravity Rush, PS Vita)

It sounds like this article just isn't for you.

I have to admit, I've been pretty underwhelmed with the system's core library, but even if you don't necessarily want to use it to play slightly downgraded PS3 games, you STILL have access to a huge selection of original PSP games, PSOne Classics, PSN exclusives and those few original hidden gems that aren't just ports or "reimaginings"...and you'd be hard pressed to play any of that on a better looking screen.

lolz how is it that i was reported as trolling but not the troll got to love n4g, makes sense
Bimkoblerutso  +   1205d ago
I don't really think either of you were trolls, to tell the truth. People are way too goddamned sensitive about this stuff.
Transporter47  +   1205d ago
Yeah, not much one can do when people are like that

I hope the first game for vita ps plus is unit 13 I had fun with the demo. Gravity rush is awesome, and retro city rampage great to play on the go ( I want GTA vita!). Next year I'm sure more exclusives will be coming and there will be a price drop.
rpd123  +   1205d ago
Unit 13 is fun, but it gets boring with no story driving it. I understand what they were going for but a lot of the missions feel redundant and I think it'd be more fun if they had a story and gave the character's personalities instead of them just being a class type.
KUV1977  +   1206d ago
So the article doesn't even mention Golden Abyss? Weired!
Rampaged Death  +   1206d ago
It's in the bonus pick section plus it wasn't very good.
KUV1977  +   1206d ago
I'm pretty sure it wasn't there before. I specifically searched for it, but maybe I mistyped. But 'not very good'? Are you serious? As far as I am concerned it is still the best VITA-game out there, rivaled only by Gravity Rush and Little Big Planet depending on which genre you like better. Unit 13 being better, according to this article, seems very strange to me, but it's their opinion I guess.

Golden Abyss was pretty well rated, but what I want to know is why neither of the mgs games for psp are mentioned.
rpd123  +   1205d ago
I agree, Golden Abyss is the best Vita title so far. I liked Gravity Rush and LBP is awesome on it, but the genre is more appealing to me. I like story driven games and Golden Abyss does that best. Plus it has awesome gameplay and is beautiful.
Alos88  +   1206d ago
What about Persona 4: Golden?
psp2roundup  +   1206d ago
Persona's not out in Europe until next year :( Have updated though!
3-4-5  +   1205d ago
How good are these Persona Games ? That is all I see people talking about? I know they get good ratings and are loved by fans. Persona 4 G , from a graphical and art style standpoint, looks amazing, but I'm not really into the whole Romance/ Dating sim thing.

How much does that come in to play here because I feel like I'm missing out on good RPG's.
Kratoscar2008  +   1205d ago
A lot and in P4 you spend even less time in dungeons compared to P3.

If you havent played P3 and P4 then you must try it first before disregarding it, at first it suunds strange the whole concept but once you play it you love it or hate it, you cant really judge it before playing it.
Neko_Mega  +   1206d ago
The best games for me to buy are the ones that I will enjoy, it is simple as that.

i actually bought mine saturday and i am waiting for tomorrow or wednesday to receive it ! I also bought LBP and a 16GB memory. Do you guys think 16GB is enough for some time ? i think the 32GB is way too expensive
Skate-AK  +   1206d ago
As long as you don't buy all your games digital.
vikingland1  +   1206d ago
16 GB should hold you over for a while. I had 4 GB and it just wasn't enough. I bought a used 16 GB at GS and it made a huge difference. If you fill it with stuff you can allways clean it up a bit by moving stuff to your PS3 untill you get a bigger one.
abzdine  +   1206d ago
Move stuff to PS3 ?
So it means if i buy something for Vita i can move it back and forth without losing the DL limit of 5 times ??
Thank you for the reply.

@Skate-AK : I dont have a choice witht the cross buy it's only digital DL on Vita. I wonder how big Battle Royale will be as well as the PS+ Instant Vita collection of free games.
Does anyone have an idea about the size of Uncharted Golden Abyss ? Just to have an idea about the size of big Vita games.
psp2roundup  +   1206d ago
16GB should be fine, but I'm now worrying about all the games I've deleted and will never bother to reinstall... bye bye Ridge Racer (plus DLC), F1 2011 and a load of cheap games - all just ghosts (not) in the machine.
badz149  +   1206d ago
I bought the Uncharted GA value pack with 4GB
and man...4GB is minimizing my selection of games I can put in! of course I do have like 5 cartridges and bringing them around is no big deal but there are games way cheaper on PSN than retail and those PSP and PS1 games are going no where without a memory card and that leaves me with very limited option! I'm definitely goingto get the 32GB later this month as if the rumors are to be believe, PS+ is coming very soon to Vita too and that means...abundance of downloads available for FREE!

of course you can just copy the contents back and forth to the PS3 but it's even nicer to have them ready to run at all time!
PinkFunk  +   1206d ago
I don't own a vita, and my PS3 is back home (I moved to the UK)... But my goodness, having LBP on-the-go makes me want to get a vita. If I ever have the money and it doesn't go to food & rent, ooooh i'll be tempted to get a vita just for LBP. I love LBP. Rofl.
badz149  +   1206d ago
LBP Vita is like what LBP should have been in the 1st place!
the touch control makes for a great addition and I can't put it down! so far, the best game available on Vita and this is from an Uncharted-kind of gamer that I am!

must haves for me on Vita:

1. LBP
2. Uncharted GA
3. Gravity Rush
4. Rayman Origins
5. Unit 13 (personally LOVE it!)
rpd123  +   1205d ago
I have 8 GB right now and still have space. I have some game trailers, a few episodes of the walking dead and downloaded Prince of Persia, GTA, and Escape Plan. Unless you're going to be buying Vita games via digital download, you will have plenty of space.
spandle  +   1206d ago
No ta, selling mine big waste of money.
Xof  +   1206d ago
If you own a Vita and don't own Project Diva F, you're doing it wrong.
TiberusX87  +   1206d ago
I hadn't owned a handheld since the 90's and up until this year, I thought the platform and its developer support was a wasted resource.

I've had an iPhone & iPad for sometime and dabbled in some portable gaming, but nothing really enough to get me hooked. Infinity Blade almost got me, but I barely lasted a few hours with its sequel and have not played an iOS game since.

I happened to stumble across Pokemon on TV one day earlier this year and it got me feeling all nostalgic, so I rushed out on an impulse and bought a 3DS and a copy of Soul Silver. It wasn't long before I realised the talent I was missing out on handhelds and my girlfriend who is a reader actually liked it when I was playing on the handheld and surprised with a VITA for our anniversary.

I've since experienced a wide array of games both new and the classics i've missed and I have to say there was something fresh about some of the games and definitely a lot more to them than anything iOS or Android can offer. It's been a great medium for RPG's and my most anticipated game of this year is currently Persona 4: Golden.

It's not changed my passion for console/PC games by any means, but theres also something about playing on a handheld that i've started enjoying. Perhaps it's a good way to escape when I work long hours, or an easier way to wind down before going to sleep. Either way, I was wrong and I think both platforms have a lot to offer.

Haters gonna hate and my overly long post won't help it. But, fuck it.

- If you like action adventure/rpgs hybrids(think of zelda)then get gravity rush
- If you like the masterpiece Uncharted then get the golden abyss
- If you like a game, which could be considered one of the best platformers ever created, then get LBP Vita

I want a Vita. But can't afford. So I'm thinking of getting a Refurbished PSP for $80 and downloading a bunch of PSP/PS1 games.

I'd rather have a Vita because NFS & Ragnorok both look really good, and Sly Cooper reminds me of the old classic games from SNES/ Genesis era.
