Can Indie Games Save The Vita?

We're on the verge of some big announcements out of the Sony camp regarding the future of the PlayStation brand, most of which will hopefully shake things up a little to revitalise an ailing brand. There's no doubt that Sony hit a few brick walls over the last two years, such as the poor performance of the Move peripheral and a lack of support for the Vita, but there seems to be some indie light at the end of the tunnel. (A Virus Named Tom, Casual games, Hotline Miami, Industry, Mobile, PS Vita)

Are we really still talking about "saving" the Vita? Yes, they didn't have much to say about new games at the recent conference, but I believe with the PS4 interactions with the system that consumers will start to pay more attention to the Vita.

It's a good system, damn good.

So, you think the ps4 is what will save the Vita then?

I think he/she is say,the network aspect will play a bigger part on how software is aquired with the vita and how the software will interact with ps4.

PMing somebody you've blocked? Nice...
Trolling? I'm sorry, but what about my comment was trolling?

Killzone IS one word, not two. You've screwed that up in multiple comments. Can't see how that would be considered trolling.

And you're being critical of what's little more than a playable tech demo: repeating almost the same comment, ver batim, stating how displeased you are with an early build of a game. I'd have though you would use your common sense and assume that it will improve quite a bit by launch, but I guess that's giving you too much credit.

You've filed a complaint? Good luck with that.

On topic: Sony seems to know exactly how to "save" the Vita: keep it relevant. The connectivity they've started with the PS3 will be expanded upon with the PS4. What we saw tonight was more for the PS4 than the Vita, but there will be more than enough time for Vita announcements in the upcoming months.

Try as you might to kill the system(you too, "CommonSense" Gamer); it will continue to persevere.

Throughout the entire conference... I was waiting for Gran Turismo to be announced for the Vita in light of the enlightening video that released just hours before the meet... To my disappointment... the only mention of the Vita was it was going to be used more by the PS4...What about the PS3? How about new releases for this system? It's a very capable hand held device and it would be a damn shame to let it die.

really ? Your disappointed that the Vita will get to play Next Gen Graphics games via the PS4 on it's screen and with it's controls ?

Are you mad ?

There wasn't a new game announcement for the Vita which should be incorporated with Playstation's future. No I am not mad. I am merely disappointed because of this. Also, the games are being streamed from the PS4, not utilising the Vita's power. Before anyone jumps to conclusions, i've been using my Vita; playing all possible games available for it. I've been amazed by Sony in how they can squeeze out so much power in a tiny machine. But I still feel that I was let down because Sony did not have any information during the PS Meet that pertained to any new games releases for the vita (there are not that many games available for the Vita at this moment).

Can Indie games save the Vita? Can Remote Play save the Vita? Can more games save the Vita? Can Obama save the Vita?

There's been way too many of these articles.

I don't think it needs saving (Many games coming this year), but if it does, then the PS4 connectivity (if they keep their promises) will be all it needs.

anything to try and deflate the recent announcement, i guess...

Saving the Vita? From what? From catapulting to the forefront of next gen gaming along with the PS4?
