Four Reasons Why Vita's More Popular Than You Think

IGN - Sony's Don Mesa spoke to IGN about all things Vita. Here are four statistics he gave us that paint a surprisingly rosy picture for the handheld. (PS Vita)

Recently confirmed for the Vita:
Telltale's TWD.
Machinarium
Jak & Daxter HD (Rated by ESRB, I take that as a confirmation).

I CAN'T WAIT FOR E3 and GAMESCOM.

Oh wow, if the Jak and Daxter one is true, I'll pick that up for Vita no doubt!

Port.
Port.
Port.

I like the Vita's hardware, but can it get something that ISN'T a port?

How dare you ask for original titles
SandWitch  +   494d ago
Soul Sac (exclusive)
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (multiplat)
Tearaway (exclusive)
Dragon's Crown (multiplat)
Teased SEGA title (multiplat)
Killzone Mercenary (exclusive)
FFX HD (remake, multiplat)
FFX-2 HD (remake multiplat)
Valhalla Knights 3 (exclusive)
Guacamelee (multiplat)
Kickbeat (exclusive)
Ys: Memories of Celceta (remake?, exclusive)
Warrior's Lair (multiplat)
MotoGP (multiplat)
Snapshot (multiplat)
Muramasa: Rebirth (remake, exclusive)
Frozen Synapse (multiplat)

And about 50 other games that we don't know about yet. Lots of multiplats I must agree, but personally most of them look more suitable for portable gaming.

Ragnarok Odyssey, Gravity Rush, Uncharted: GA, Dokuro, Killzone: Mercenaries, and Unit 13 are exclusives.

And what the hell is wrong with ports anyway? There's plenty of original titles out there but what on earth is wrong with ports, if well done?

The reason why the Vita's seeing ports is because it can actually handle ports. I don't know how on earth anyone could spin this as a bad thing.

"Oooh! The horror! The Vita has games to play, and some of them have been released elsewhere!"

Give your head a shake. You don't like ports, don't buy em.

So... all the non-ports or non-multiplats suddenly cease to exist because of a few new ports announced?

Soul Sacrifice is no longer coming?
Gravity Rush no longer exists?

Damn.

Oh so now we are back to the ol´ port argument.

Keep Ignoring the exclusive titles, hope it makes you feel better about PS Vita.

Who was that white guy on the right. He was creepy
G20WLY  +   493d ago
They're all white!!

You're right though; the guy just sits there with his dead eyes bearly blinking and nods occasionally lol! Excellent cntribution, thank you... He didn't even get introduced - so what's the bleedin' point?!

Glad it wasn't just me that thought that :/

What is the guy sitting with the cup of joe actually getting paid to do, sit there and say nothing?
FAT MAN GO BOOM  +   494d ago
Talk about rude from Colin.. why did he not introduce him or anything...
InTheLab  +   494d ago
I got called a crackhead by a deranged fanboy in the last thread where I said Vita was performing poorly....which is the truth. They said as much in the video. Cant wait till those same nutters show up and bash IGN for stating the truth.

As for the video...I easily dump more than 20 hours a week when there's a new release and I'm satisfied with my Vita so far. I never understood why people keep saying Vita has no games when there's so many good one available and more on the way.

Looking forward to the walking dead. Got a feeling that Vitas touch controls will make it the best way to play.
FAT MAN GO BOOM  +   494d ago
Oh wow how rude... Colin did not even look at the third guy introduce him or nothing...

What a way to make the guy feel like a tool. Have him sit there say nothing too him... not even good bye...

Man what is going on with IGN...

poor bastard...

Colin has a huge fricken ego that bothers the hell out of me. He thinks he's waaaay smarter than he actually is.

I love all the games on Vita. Taking games on the go instead of a console. isnt that why we bought our Vitas?? And the originality of the exclusives? One thing i know theres an experience on Vita, thats not possible anywhere else. My opinion. And i welcome all games. especially Soul Sacrifice, Ys, And KILLZONE
Veneno  +   494d ago
I played the demo for walking dead on ps3 and I thought it was mediocre. I think that 5he Vita will be a much better platform for it than the home consoles because games on the consoles that do not take full advantage of PS3s, and even xbox (lol) power just plain dont belong on the big consoles and are better suited for Vita. Walking dead is just one of many examples.

All the statistics were based on polls. Not reliable enough.
