Top 5 Franchises the Vita Needs to Survive

"The PlayStation Vita is the hand held console that many gamers have always wanted. It’s powerful, provides us with console-like experiences on the go and, perhaps most importantly, it has two analogue sticks. Sadly, it hasn’t caught on in the way that it should have. Part of this is down to Sony’s baffling lack of advertising for the product but it’s also down to lack of games with mainstream appeal. Here are the top 5 franchises with the power to breathe life into the Vita…", says Kevin O'Donell

I am not sure if the PSV needs a GoW right now. Sales of the latest one are lower than they ought to be (questionable I guess).

What PSV needs is a proper entry for COD and FIFA. Continue with AC support, get GTA. As for Japanese companies... yes, MH is definitely a big one they need for the JPN market but I think they really need to get SE to get some FF games going besides just a HD port of FFX. Type 0 port... heck a port of FF Dimensions is at least something.

And while speaking of Japan... a PES soccer game... I am surprised there is not one already for the PSV.

I think the 3DS taught us a lesson: games from the past won't necessarily help sell your current system. Nintendogs + Cats on 3DS proved that.

I think the article is dead wrong. What the Vita needs is unique, built-from-the-ground-up games, and then Sony needs to actually advertise them.

Most non-numbered games and prequels in general usually have lower sales than their numbered counterparts (God Of War I, II and III). That's probably why in my opinion. Though about the topic about the Vita needing to survive and stuff like that, the Vita is fine no need to worry anymore. I'd be more concerned if the install base is still about 3 M up until now but it's picking steam and sooner or later we'll get more games :D

They want a GOW for vita? So journalists can bash that game like they did with Ascension? By saying its too much of the same, but if they change it a lot then it becomes too different!

How about.

Shadow of the Collosus HD

Okami HD

Metal Gear Solid 5

Monster Hunter 5

Although I'd rather a glorified HD Remake of Gran Turismo 2, or just Gran Turismo 2 even jeez.

A new Pangya Fantasy Golf game.

Bluetooth Controller Support.
