7 PlayStation Vita Games That Break the Portable Gaming Mold

Forbes - As Vita delivers the long promised reality of console gaming on the go, it signals the end of second-tier portable versions of big franchises.

The story is too old to be commented.

But the media told me, Vita has no games and it's Doomed.

TheGrimOfDeath1906d ago

The media is always wrong. :D

Spenok1905d ago

Not always. They can be misleading at times. But yeah, your right for the most part lol.

The media is trying to destroy Sony.

Mounce1906d ago

They have been trying to 'destroy' ever since 2006.

No one dared to attack Sony during the PS2 streak last generation, now these days since their heads are so far up their ass with the 'Oh how the mighty have fallen' they think it reasonable and fun to jab at a company that is still there, but the pettiness that they wish a company dies or goes bankrupt simply because of irrational, emotional bias and illogical hatred.

Fanboyism and favoritism, bias..... the traits of humans I will loathe the most.

the experts also told us that the ps3 had no games and it was doomd.

they also told us that the bluray would fail because most peoples dont want hdtvs and they will stick with their dvd players.

thoses expert are wayyyyyy too badass to share their ultimate virtue with us, the futile insignifiant beings.

I do like the cutesy look of New Little King's story, but I'm not sure it's a good idea to cite some of the other games listed. AC:Liberation is not something I'm interested in and Need For Speed, FIFA, Uncharted and Little Big Planet already have iterations on the PS3, in some cases cheaper ones.

PLEASE don't assume I am trying to hate this platform. I really do think the Vita is a good piece of hardware. I just want some newer and better content before I justify my purchase. Maybe this satisfies other gamers, but not me. And it isn't because I don't want to; I just don't think it satisfies my taste right now. Give me more games like Tearaway, or basically anything I CAN'T play on my PS3, maybe throw in a price drop on the memory cards and I'll definitely be picking one up.

You don't think it's a good idea to cite some of the games because, one, you are not interested in one of them and two, because you can find some of them already on the PS3? This article is not just for you, it's for everyone looking into getting a Vita or those that have a Vita that wants to see what is available to them on the platform. Also, some of these games are a lot more fun to play on the go or just on portable devices, then they are when played on the PS3.

While, I do agree some of them should have never been cited; like Fifa, that doesn't change anything or improve anything from the first one that was released. The Vita does have a good share of notable titles, so I don't know why they listed Fifa. They could've replaced it with Rayman or Unit 13. Those games are great on the go and fit the portable platform better than they do, on the home console. IMO

I don't understand how some people can have double standards. It's okay for one console to have content that can be found on one console, but not okay for another? This is just a general statement and not directed towards you (PopRocks359).

Also, why do you mention, people shouldn't assume you hate the Vita? People will do it anyway, based on what you say about it or any other console. Second thing is, have you played any of those game that can be found on the PS3 on the Vita? Some of them are more enjoyable on the go, then just being stationed in the house. If you played them already, then there is a little point in getting them again.

Also, there are some hidden gems in the PSN store for the Vita, that can't be found on the PS3 or that is cross Platform with the PS3, but better on the Vita. I agree, if the Vita has a price drop and they bundled a 4GB card, they would be selling better and it would appeal better to the consumer.

"This article is not just for you"

I never said it was. I just gave my two cents on it.

"Also, why do you mention, people shouldn't assume you hate the Vita?"

For the simple fact that I don't. I don't think that's a difficult concept to grasp.

"Also, there are some hidden gems in the PSN store for the Vita"

As with any platform, but those aren't the system sellers; the big GO-TO games, if you will. If this list was really about providing a list of the really great stuff, they wouldn't have bothered listing games like FIFA and instead showed everything, including games you would have to download.

I mean come on, two indie downloadable games walked away with many of the GOTY awards. It's not exactly unreasonable to list digital titles as reasons to buy a new platform.

Godchild10201906d ago (Edited 1906d ago )

This is not to start any bad blood or argument; I just want to post some of the flaws that I see in your comment.

"I never said it was. I just gave my two cents on it."

That's the way it comes off. Just read you comment again. Just because majority of those games have iterations on another platform, that doesn't they don't bring something new to the table and not make it the same game that I played on another? Just because they are from the same franchise, that doesn't make it the same game nor does it mean it doesn't have a place it be cited. Until you play either game on the Vita or a portable device, I don’t think your "two cents" are required. You don't even say anything beyond that it doesn't interest you are they can be found on another platform. The two cents that would have helped would have been, what the game does the same or different that makes it not have a place to be cited on this article. Also, why mention a game doesn't interest you, without saying why? Which goes to you saying you like the Vita, but your response before it, gives off something complete different.

It's your choice to comment and leave detail as you please and I know I can't change how you comment. I know we all do it, but I feel like your comment left an open door for discussion.

"For the simple fact that I don't. I don't think that's a difficult concept to grasp."

I don't hate the any system, but I don't add that I like any system in every one of my comments when I say something bad about them. All I'm saying why does it matter if people think you hate X system? (General Statement)No one cares if you like the system, if you say something bad about it, in majority of the articles you comment on, people tend to take the bad of what you say and spin it.

It not a difficult concept to grasp, it's just hard to care or believe when you make comments like that. This could just be me and that's why I'm mentioning it.

"If this list was really about providing a list of the really great stuff, they wouldn't have bothered listing games like FIFA"

That is my point and that is an issue with the writer of the article. The fact that he listed a title that can only be found in the PSN store, here in North America, is an issue with him not playing or know about a lot of the games or the fact that he believes these are the only games of 2012 that really do "Break the Portable Gaming Mold." I'm sure everyone here will have a different opinion.

Poprocks359, I think you're missing the point of the article; it lists those games to demonstrate that we don't have to expect scaled down versions when gaming on a handheld anymore, thanks to Vita.

It's not necessarily a list of system sellers or the best games available for the system. It doesn't matter that you can get some of them on PS3. In fact, that's the very point the article is making; for example NFS on Vita doesn't have less cars or modes, it's exactly the same experience. :)

Comment towards PopRock359,

So you don't want a handheld because it provides iterations of a home console game. Almost every handheld in the history of handhelds have done that my friend.
Don't you like Mario or Zelda on your handheld?

Uncharted Golden Abyss is a prequel to the first Uncharted on PS3. You can't play it on your PS3.
Gravity Rush, Unit 13, Little Big Planet Vita, Super Stardust Delta, Big Sky Infinity, Virtues Last Reward, Assassins Creed III Liberation, Disgaea 3, Escape Plan, Little Deviants, Lumies: Electronic Symphony, Modnation Racers: Road trip, New little kings Story, Resistance Burning Skies, Silent Hill Book of Memories and Tales from space Mutant Blob Attack are not playable on PS3.

PopRocks3591905d ago (Edited 1905d ago )

Double post. Sorry.

PopRocks3591905d ago

I don't think you're understanding the context of what I'm saying. I don't want experiences I can get on my PS3. In other words, I don't really care for PS3 ports or an Uncharted game. Don't get me wrong, Uncharted is a good series, but it won't make me run out to get a Vita.

"Don't you like Mario or Zelda on your handheld?"

Okay, this implies all Mario and Zelda games are the same, which is the farthest thing from the truth. They're no more monotonous than the Ratchet & Clank and Halo series.

You can only play Super Mario 3D Land, Resident Evil Revelations, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Mario Kart 7 and other such games on the 3DS. That's why I bought one. Those games interest me.

Gravity Rush and Tearaway are also what I'm interested in. I'm still waiting for more content that I think looks cool.

But it really doesn't matter anyway. Obviously it doesn't matter what I say or how respectfully I attempt to write my comments; this community continues to prove time and time again that sharing ANY adverse thoughts about a Sony product as well as any positive ones for Nintendo is only going to result in petty feuds as well as awkward analyses of my comment language.

Persona 4 picture makes me want to get the Vita, those girls are so cute. I have never played a Persona game.

The vita is a great system but don't know why it doesn't love from people

user9470311906d ago (Edited 1906d ago )

Idk I got a disagree for no reason : / Now its two : /

Cam9771906d ago

Uncharted is one even if Chapter 11 is ridiculous in Crushing mode. Another great title is the MGS:HD trilogy and LBP - a game I have recently invested in, it cost me £13 for a digital copy from eBay; so far I'm loving it, it certainly proves itself to be a well made Vita title.
