Editorial: Should I Buy a Vita? – The Top 5 Games That Would Make Me Say “Yes”

SonyRumors Cerajoy takes a look at the current portfolio of the PlayStation Vita and gives her top 5 games that would make her buy the powerful portable handheld console. She then asks what games would make you buy the PS Vita. (PS Vita, Sony)

I would like to see some non-MH-style RPGs on the console. Maybe even *gasp* a WRPG. It'll probably never happen, but I'd love that. I'd also love more VN-style games like VLR.
bebitech  +   991d ago
I'm honestly surprised that there aren't more JRPG's for it. It seems like the perfect device for it but then again, the Japanese gaming industry seems to have been asleep this current console life.
LOGICWINS  +   990d ago
There will be. Give it time. The Vita will cater to JRPG fanatics more than any other device in this coming generation. Mark my words.

EDIT: And thats not even considering the access you have to a plethora of PSP JRPGs that are CURRENTLY compatible with Vita.

nope 3DS is already a league ahead.

You're leagues ahead of us in terms of blindly being a fanboy.

Dj7's words actually have more bearing:


While LOGIC's declaration is more of a speculation.
skyrimer  +   990d ago
Sorry but many of those games are not even out or them coming to the west is highly doubtful.
ApolloTheBoss  +   990d ago
Persona 4 Golden, Soul Sacrifice, and Gravity Rush are the reasons I'm buying a Vita very soon.
fantasygamer  +   990d ago
LittleBigPlanet Vita is also a great reason to own one.
Hanso  +   990d ago
dont forget Ys memories of celceta
SonyStyled  +   990d ago
if your a fan of uncharted check out golden abyss. idk why so many people have passed on the vita with this title
ApolloTheBoss  +   990d ago
I haven't played any Uncharted games cause I just got a PS3 5 months ago but I'm gonna play them all soon.
Edit: @Hanso Never heard of that series but I just looked it up and I can tell you it's definitely on my radar.

@fantasygamer: Just might check that out too.

My Vita turned a 2 minute toilet trip into a 10 minute AC session. Damn! If you're skeptical, don't be! You have access to a huge ps1, PSP & Ps Vita library of games.

The fact that you can access full porn websites properly on the browser turned my 2 minute toilet trip into a 3 minute toilet trip!
born2live  +   990d ago
Remind me to wear gloves when I play your Vita.
stuntman_mike  +   990d ago
I highly recommend getting one there's some excellent games on it. Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Persona 4 golden (plus persona 1,2,3), Wipeout, Assassins creed, plus tons of PSP and PSone games. to name a few.
Th4Freak  +   990d ago
I know that's her personal preference but in my opinion some games that could blow PSV sales are:

*GTA (Original or V)
*GoW (Original)
*CoD (A true one not made by Nihilistic)
*RE (Original)
*MGS (Original not a HD remake or a port)

Make it happen Sony make it happen!!! T_T

Wasn't a Bioshock game already announced for the Vita?

No, the E3 2011 presentation was a fake, read this:

However Ken Levine has told that he still interested in make it happen but it all depends on Sony.
tubers  +   990d ago
It's basically vaporware.
amaguli  +   990d ago
Five games I would recomend that are out right now:

Gravity Rush
Persona 4 Golden
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
Ragnarok Odyssey
Uncharted: Golden Abyss

Five games that I am looking forward to this year:

Soul Sacrifice
Killzone: Mercenary
Ys: Memories of Celceta
Valhalla Knights 3
JimmyDanger  +   990d ago
I didn't think Tearaway was until next year?
amaguli  +   990d ago
Is it? Oh well, it still looks great regardless.
sherimae2413  +   990d ago
then i will make it release this year ^_^ tee-hee
Veneno  +   990d ago
Is Y's Memories a straight up Vita game? Or a PSP game?
tubers  +   990d ago
A VITA game. It looks pretty nifty.
telekineticmantis  +   990d ago
I have no Idea why Ni No Kuni
isn't on the PSVITA.
erikthegman  +   990d ago
Picked up a vita about a week ago. enjoying little big planet so much its a really fun game that's massive in content and innovation. then there's gravity rush and FIFA 13 is perfect for a quick game in the loo. so many other games still out there I want to get. and many awesome games coming out this year that will benefit from longer development cycles due to the vita being out for over a year. this portable gets way too much hate that's really not deserved. if you're a gamer you should own a vita. for one you'll give Nintendo free reign over the handheld market in the future if the vita fails. secondly, who wouldn't want to see the specs of the successor to the vita and the games on it.
Dj7FairyTail  +   990d ago
Not selling and it on DS.
Red_Devilz  +   990d ago
For those who have vita, I would STRONGLY recommend Uncharted: Golden Abyss. That game is freakin awesome. It reminds you why you have touch controls on vita. Absolutely stunning!

For those who don't have vita: You have no idea what you are missing.
tubers  +   990d ago
Touch controls for UCGA is tacked on for pick ups and grenades. The Triangle button is just begging for attention.

The gyro-precision-aiming experience, on the otherhand, shocked me on how useful it actually is for a device with a small right stick.

It needs an original MGS. Kojima make it happen!

Twin Snakes Edition, would be awesome.
