3 games that can save PS Vita in 2013

PSU.com writes:

"Chalk it up to the cost of the device, the increasing competition from SmartPhones and Tablets, 3DS or simply because people aren’t away of what PS Vita can do, but Sony’s handheld isn’t in the best position. The question is, what happens now? Ultimately, it all comes down to the games; PS Vita is a games device first and foremost, and software is going to make or break it."

Agree with all three choices, and they need this stuff as soon as possible.

This should really be a list of "5 games that can save PS Vita 2013"

#4 would be Final Fantasy
#5 would be God of War

I know FFX HD is in the works, but I doubt we'll see it this year. God of War is also rumored to be in the works, so we'll see. I still think Sony should pay Square for a Final Fantasy 7 HD remake on both PS3 (or PS4) and PS Vita. Cloud saves/cross-play, and they'll move units.

MikeMyers1401d ago

I can't wait for the list for 2014 titles that can save Vita. These topics don't really do anything aside from clash with those who enjoy Vita and those who apparently have no faith in the device.

ABizzel11401d ago

Let's wait and see what happens this holiday before claiming it needs saving, but the following games wouldn't hurt if they came out 2013:

America: Grand Theft Auto, God of War, Call of Duty Vita (proper game),

Europe: Gran Turismo, Assassin's Creed V2, Fifa (proper game),

Japan: Final Fantasy, Monster Hunter, Metal Gear Solid

Add in Tearaway, Killzone PSV, Sly Copper (Cross Buy), Soul Sacrifice, Oddworld Stranger's Wrath HD, Warrior's Lair, and possibly more and the Vita will have an amazing line-up. Make it happen Sony, even if you have to do the work yourself.

They only need Monster Hunter for Japan and Grand Theft Auto for West. Then, the sales would skyrocket in those areas. Especially if they can secure exclusivity for Monster Hunter (letting Nintendo take 3rd Ultimate for both their systems was one major f*ck up).

Aggesan1401d ago

I already got a Vita, but what I'm looking forward to the most is Killzone and Bioshock. Of course Monster Hunter, GoW, GTA and Gran Turismo would be very welcome though :)

Donnieboi1401d ago

I'd also like to see Catherine Special edition and a new Shin Megami Game. That would be awesome.

XB1_PS41401d ago

Sony needs an advert that clearly distinguishes it from the PsP. Something with some production value that focuses on the system itself. Something that shows some kids parent that this system is actually different/better than the psp. You know why COD does amazing every year. They advertise the SHIT out of it. I see it 10 times during an nfl game. That's what they need to do with the Vita. Make it a household name.

Monster Hunter should seal the Japan sales.

dboyman1401d ago

Tell that to Capcom...

360ICE1401d ago

Another thing on my list of things I want to tell Capcom.

1. New Dante is weird. (not as bad as I thought though)
2. New Monster Hunter would sell Vitas in Japan
3. Please stop screwing up Resident Evil

abzdine1401d ago

People are forgetting a massive thing, GAIKAI!
GAIKAI on Vita would kill it!!!

CalvinKlein1401d ago

COD Modern warfare 4: declassified?

Really Im excited to see gravity rush 2 and killzone mercs: the first good FPS on the VITA.

3-4-51401d ago

Honorable Mention = Sly Cooper

It's going to be the go to platformer for the Vita.

It looks beautiful and fun as well.

I've never played a Sly game but this one looks good.

Gran Turismo = instant system seller.

andibandit1401d ago

I think the Vita needs something stronger, like a unique Flagship game to call it's own. Not some rehash of GT.

NeoTribe1401d ago ImmatureShow
AznGaara1401d ago

Wait... so 9 million copies of GT5 sold and 1 million of that were sold LAST YEAR bringing the franchise total to 67.8 million copies sold and you think the Vita needs something "stronger." I guess those were a couple million people who played on a "gay dualshock." Oh don't forget the PSP version sold 1.8 million in three months just to play on a "tiny screen."

GT5 9 million: http://www.racedepartment.c...
67.8 million: http://www.ign.com/articles...
PsP: http://www.gtplanet.net/gra...

I'm all in favor for a new franchise to be the face of the Vita. I LOVED Gravity Rush. But when it comes to moving units, you can't go wrong with Gran Turismo... it simply sells.

dafegamer1401d ago

yeah cause Gran tourismo is literally the Halo of Europe. Hell i think its even bigger than Fifa in Europe

Yangus1401d ago (Edited 1401d ago )

And exklusive:

Dragon Quest.
Final Fantasy.
MGS.

3-4-51401d ago

Vita isn't getting Dragon Quest.

3DS is already getting DQ7 remake, I would assume because of # of units sold that they would want to put the game on 3DS because there are that many more potential customers.

+ DQ is bigger in Japan, who happens to favor the 3DS thus far over the Vita.

EliteDave931401d ago

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Stories.

NukaCola1401d ago

Yes!

And a Chinatown Wars style GTA.

Snookies121401d ago

Don't you do that! Don't you make me want a game that isn't real! D:

DivineHand1251401d ago

I seriously doubt these would be system sellers since the last handheld GT game was bad and the other 2 have a very high chance being multiplateform titles.

What the vita needs is vita only franchises that takes full advantage of the hardware(i mean the rear touch screen) and not something that can work on either 3ds or ps3. That way people would be forced to buy the system to play the game.

Donnieboi1401d ago

I hate to admit it, but your right -_-. However, imagine a version of Gran Turismo that takes ADVANTAGE of the Vita and its portability? Like: What if you could micro manage the ability to build cars from scratch, which is something that could be fun on the go (but may not be as fun on a home console). Micro management stuff is a benefit for portable games--like the base stuff in MGS Peace Walker.

Also, imagine controlling GT by tilting the Vita to steer the car. There's a few things they can do to completely differentiate the series enough for the portable version.

XB1_PS41401d ago

The rear touch could be amazing for shifting if they implement it well!
