How about some original games?
Hicken  +   578d ago
How about looking at the game's library?
WiiUsauce  +   578d ago
funny how they made fun of the 3DS's early library when it had a small handfull of ports, and now their system has like 70% ports in their library and now they're asking for more. But it's okay when Sony does it, right? lol
Killzoner99  +   578d ago
Ever hear of Gravity Rush? It's probably the most original game of the last 5 years. I don't think the Vita is suffering for original games. Sony has a massive library they can mine from and they should take advantage of that. The Vita will be fine if Sony continues to push crossbuy , remote play and bring the classics to a new generation

I just need my inFAMOUS, Uncharted, Killzone, LBP, and God of War fix on the system with some new IPs and ports and this system would be the possibly the best handheld I've ever owned, and I owned a lot of brilliant handhelds gaming devices.

I know that the stuff I put above are coming as a reality with Killzone is approaching and LBP & Uncharted already hit the Vita. Also new IPs like Tearaway and Soul Sacrafice are the new IPs. Also the ports are always good for games on consoles that can be enhanced to be a great play on the go title. PS Vita is going to have a fun ride starting 2013!

+1. As an owner, I'm pretty stoked about the upcoming projects and am most interested in new console style titles utilizing either new Vita or established PS3 franchises for the big expensive games or super quick casual games as time killer/psn only type products.

I'm personally not looking for a bunch of ports of old Japanese games when the Vita can already play a ton of original JRPGs through the PSP backward compatibility. Psychonauts is probably the only title on that list I would have any interest in but I already own it on more than one system. Mine craft's a cool idea... But otherwise, for me, most of this list has "meh" written all over it.

I also really want an infamous game on the vita. But I would also like to see more original games. Finally got the demo of Soul Sacrifice and I cannot wait to play it. They have an excellent demo for that game and that's the kind of new game experience I want on the vita.

Wait wait wait. With all the people b*tching, moaning, and whining that the Vita gets nothing but ports (which is a lie), here's an article asking for 10 of them? Wow. And the haters show up in 3...2...1...
supremacy  +   578d ago
Personally prefer exclusive new ips, but i don't mind ports just as long as they are well done and enhanced at that.

Nintendo handhelds live on ports, but the difference is they live on ports of classics.

Sony did port a classic in Persona 4 golden and is looking to do the same again with FFX which is good. But i strongly feel this needs to be consistent.

But in the spirit of this article, i will list my top 10 ports for the Vita.

1. Skies of Arcadia
2. Rogue galaxy
3. RE zero & Resident evil one Game cube remake
4. Socom 2
5. Twisted metal black
6. Dragon quest 8
7. Kingdom Hearts 1&2
8. Shenmue 1&2
9. GTA 3, Vice city & San andreas
10.Star ocean til the end of time

Now for my 10 runner ups...

1. Black
2. Project justice
3. suikoden 3-5
4. Onimusha 1-4
5. Wild arms 3-5+ alter code f
6. Grandia Xtreme,2&3
7. Mega man x collection
8. Drakengard 1&
9. Soul reaver
10. Xenosaga complete

of course there are more but i wont bother making another list. But the vita can very well benefit just of back catalogue titles.

But but but, porting CONSOLE games to a handheld is stupid! /sarcasm

(really enjoying making fun of Vita haters)
Yodagamer  +   578d ago
Lets be honest alot of vita fans said the same thing about the 3ds.
TongkatAli  +   577d ago
Being a immature troll hater is never justified.
JaredH  +   578d ago
Minecraft would actually be pretty good on the Vita. It's a game that can be enjoyed in short bursts or long stretches.
Yodagamer  +   578d ago
Man i really dislike this generation of handhelds, i want all these games on both portables, i love the 3d aspect of the 3ds and the hd screen on the vita O.o, Games like okami would benefit from both XD. They both have great games and i love them both
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   578d ago
woah didnt expect ToS that is my favorite in the series. I still replay it from time to time on Gamecube.
gamingmaster2013  +   578d ago
exclusives are what the vita really needs. i dont mind ports but look at the 3ds - has ports but way more exclusives, which are marketed and advertised properly and exactly why the 3ds is selling bucket loads of units.

i hope sony advertise and hype up the vita exclusive soul sacrifice for the next few months because it is looking like one of those games that is eventually going to be released on multiple platforms like mgs peace walker and more recently resident evil revelations, and then tearaway and killzone mercenary (which BTW are looking EPIC from the screenshots released on the polish PSExtreme magazine, developers like media molecule and guerilla and cambridge deserve their games to sell loads of units!)

Disgaea 4 because Disgaea is better on Handhelds.
Black-Rock-Shooter  +   578d ago
Or Disgaea D2 with cross-platform play that would be cool to.
Veneno  +   578d ago
Thats the exact reason why I havent picked up Disgaea 4 forPS3. Because I know that it will be a better experience on the Vita. And with extra comtent too :)

"Porting fantastic console and computer games to the Vita could be key to the system’s salvation"

stopped reading after that.

this is a cleverly disguised vita doom article.
andrewer  +   578d ago
IMO Psychonauts, Shadow of the Colossus and Sly Cooper Collection.
fOrlOnhOpe57  +   578d ago
Borderlands2 port please, Sony. Randy Pitchford already said he'd be happy to see it happen. And so would I.
And I reckon Vita would get a heck of a lot more Vita sales from Borderlands fans.
Veneno  +   578d ago
DARK souls/demons souls fans would flock to the vita also if those games, or new iterations came to Vita. Its money in the bank. These publishers and devs are missing out.
drsnoopyseussdog  +   578d ago
Top 3 I would Want To See on Vita:
1)Metal Gear solid Peace Walker HD
