No Vita Games In SCEE’s 12 Deals Of Christmas Due To “The Lack Of Them”

Wondering why there aren’t any PS Vita games in our guesswork about what’s coming up in this year’s 12 Deals Of Christmas over on the PSN Store? Well, it’s simple: there’s a lack of Vita games.

That’s according to SCEE’s Chris Howe, who confirmed the reason for the fact that the deals are all for the PlayStation 3 in a comment on the PS Blog. (PS Vita, Tag Invalid)

If you have PS Plus, in less than a month we've already gotten Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Jet Set Radio, Mortal Kombat, and Wipeout 2048. Thats OVER $100 worth of Vita games in the FIRST month of a $50 PS Plus subscription...that promises more games in the next 11 months.

No one has room to complain.

Indeed. If you want your deal, it's called Playstation Plus.

"No one has room to complain."
haters will always try to justify their hate with ridiculous delusional rationalisation.

"its not free, it cost 50$ per year"
not far from true, but it already paid itself in less than a month,

..... oh but whats that? ....oh yeah, that's eleven months left to give me FREEBIES.

Mortal Kombat? i didn't see it at the store :@
ThanatosDMC  +   1158d ago
It's there. I didnt like it personally. The button input is a lot slower than the console counterpart. It just lags a bit and the graphics arent as good as some other Vita games.

Mortal Kombat Vita is free with plus too? It's not in my Vita Store.

I've been wanting these games since I got my Vita... but damn my pockets look like "upside down rabbit ears" LMAO

Bills are kicking my well... you know but games keep me sane.. Thanks to plus tho I can get those games now.. peace

I think what Chris Howe is getting at is that the Vita is a new console. Because of this the publishers don't want to offer deals on their games.

Typically new game console releases don't see major price drops on games until the end of it's first year. While the Vita catalog is impressive for it's age, publishers are going to want to maximize their profit for new buyers of the system by making them pay as much as possible given the more limited selection.

You allready got a deal, its called PS plus.
Raccoon  +   1158d ago
If you really desire a deal its called playstation plus.
nugnugs  +   1158d ago
And there's a deal, in the UK at least, where 3 months of PS+ is going for £7.99. That's £7.99 for a 3 month rental of 2 of the best games the Vita has to offer.

Already

i guess this is to counteract the "why do people think the vita has no games" article?

i mean, it's not a day at N4G without at least a dozen doom articles, right?
Conzul  +   1158d ago
Now now, don't exaggerate. It's a HALF-dozen. There's a difference.
Silly gameAr  +   1157d ago
Don't you just love it when articles like this pop up out of nowhere?

'Tis the season to get PLUS, fa la la la la, la la la ow!
porkChop  +   1158d ago
If you want a deal then just get PlayStation Plus. That's the best deal you'll ever see on PSN.
tiffac008  +   1158d ago
I wish they would offer discounted/free PSP titles for the Vita with Plus or they could use it with this promo as well.
Christopher  +   1158d ago
There hasn't been a portable PS+ program yet, but you will likely see this now that that the PS Vita is a part of it. Don't forget that all of your PS+ PSOne games and many of your PSMini games that you get each month or with discounts are playable on your PSVita as well.
tiffac008  +   1157d ago
Yup I know that's why I hope they extend the offer to PSP games as well. :)
