5 franchises we want on Vita

Play-Mag - We are contractually obliged to like the Vita here at Play, but even we understand that it’s a great console burdened by a lack of must-have games. It’s a similar problem the PSP suffered on its launch, but after a few years it built up a considerable catalogue of great titles. We have faith the Vita will eventually end up in the same place, but just in case the guys in charge need a hand, here are five franchises we’d love to see on our handheld machines. (PS Vita)

I hope an Elder Scrolls game comes.
But current VITA carts only hold 4GB. VITA carts would probably need an upgrade to 8GB (at least) to get an open world game like that.

Thinking about Mass Effect, I really wish Sony would get into gear about PS Mobile. Would be great to get some cheap well known mobile games like
Mass Effect Infiltrator
Dead Space Mobile
Chaos Rings (basically like FF)

to at least get these sort of IP's represented on the device in a small capacity. That would be a step in the right direction to getting the bigger titles on the PSV.

I would love to see a Type 0 FF port after SE ditched the English PSP version, and a new Metal Gear Acid game would be sweet too.

Not really, sacrifice the graphics and that world can be bigger than skyrim. Like back when morrow wind came out.

I remember reading that Sony was already testing bigger game cartridges before the Vita came out. I remember there were 8GB and 16GB ones. So I wouldn't be surprised if Sony already has them ready for developers to use.

Really?
Not to be too annoying, but can you link me to where you saw that?

I have followed a lot of VITA stories and never heard SCE get that intricate on those sort of details.

It is true. I read the same thing. Sony said that they have larger cards that they would be willing to make available if a developer desired their size.

This is a great list by the author. I'd love to have any of those franchises on my Vita.

I would have enjoyed Final Fantasy Type-Zero on the Vita. Hell I'd probably enjoy it period if I got a chance to play it..
murdock55  +   485d ago
fallout, gta, final fantasy, need for speed, mass effect, killzone, dead space, resident evil.
Kingthrash360  +   485d ago

I love my vita but I don't know if it is powerful enough for some of these games. Sorry, but some stuff runs pretty choppy. I know, everything can run choppy at some point but you see me working.
Kingthrash360  +   485d ago
Most ps3 games were choppy in first year....it will pick up once dev get into the meat of the vita. All systems go through this.
KrisButtar  +   485d ago
my taste of games is different then the writer, as i would only pick 2 of those franchises #2,#4 i dont care for the others even though i own the others i dont see them doing well on the vita. i would rather a GTA, borderlands and GT
Kingthrash360  +   485d ago
The 5 franchises I need to have a pleasure overload:
NBA2k
Gta
Tekken
Borderlands
Wild arms
Lionalliance  +   485d ago
I would say Far Cry too.
WildArmed  +   485d ago

Just 5 franchises? It's going to take much more than that the help the Vita thrive, he's 10 that should appear on the Vita!

1. God of War.
2. Gran Turismo.
3. Grand Theft Auto.
4. The Elder Scrolls.
5. Mass Effect.
6. Bioshock.

Mainly for the Eastern gamers.

7. Metal Gear Solid.
8. Final Fantasy.
9. Kingdom Hearts.
10. Monster Hunter.

Williamson  +   485d ago
I would love to see a batman arkham type of game,dbz or naruto fighting game, infamous, next NHL game, and hopefully the next sonic game that has been rumored.
tachy0n  +   485d ago
man i frikin need Gravity Rush 2!!!
Williamson  +   485d ago
Wow I cant believe I didnt mention that!
stefan771  +   485d ago
GTA
ajax17  +   485d ago
I really hope they double the RAM for the Vita slim *or whatever they call it. Just like they did with the original PSP and the newer versions.
josephayal  +   485d ago
Final fantasy 13 and Resident Evil 6
drsnoopyseussdog  +   485d ago
i would love a sequel to gravity rush. i wud also love for kingdom hearts hd collection to come. god of war gta and gra turismo wud be awesome only time will tell.
TheDivine  +   485d ago
Demons Souls
Dead Space
ME
Elder Scrolls
Resident Evil
Dues Ex
MGS

Too many to name really. These are more recent as I don't see much hope for a new Chrono, Shining Force, Breath of Fire, Valkyrie Profile and other older franchises. Would love a new Resonance of Fate, Star Ocean, and for the Tales games to get localized over here.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   485d ago
Off this list I just want Final Fantasy.
TheLastGuardian  +   485d ago
GTA
Bioshock
Twisted Metal
inFAMOUS
Patapon

But more than all of those, I'd love a new Crash or Jak game from either of Naughty Dog's teams.
GloriousBagel  +   485d ago
seems like some of you forgot Star Ocean.
That series needs to come back.
