Five Games That Could Turn Around the PS Vita's Misfortunes (Gamerhub tv)

The PS Vita could be doing better...but these five releases will certainly help. (Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Dragon's Crown, Muramasa Rebirth, PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice, Tearaway)

PS Vita needs a LOT of help.
dedicatedtogamers  +   1003d ago
Y'know, after the DS began kicking the PSP's butt, I remember a lot of people saying "LOL See? This is why you don't challenge Ninty. Dead in the Water handheld" and then the PSP went on to sell 80+ million units.

And before anyone says "that's because of Monster Hunter". Monster Hunter's highest-selling game was Portable 3rd, Japan-only, and it sold less than 5 million. There's a huge gap between 5 million and 80 million.

The Vita will do fine. It's going through the exact same growing pains that the PSP did.

I want a Vita, but there is just no need.

Just like you don't "need" any gaming console. If you get a Vita, its because you WANT it, not because you NEED it.
CalebZachary8411  +   1003d ago
While I agree these games will definitely help. I believe Killzone would be in my top 5 of games that can help the PS vita.
LOGICWINS  +   1003d ago
Right, like Killzone 3 helped out the PS3 and Liberation helped the PSP.

*Said no one ever*

Look, Killzone is a great franchise, but its not going to move a massive quantity of units unless its bundled with a Vita at $199 or less. The franchise just doesn't have that kind of selling power.

What will sell Vita is an accumulation of great titles, not one or 5. Last year, numerous N4Gers wrongfully assumed that having a COD game on the Vita would somehow MAGICALLY get people to spend $249 on a handheld.

Guess what? They all had to eat crow.

KZ3 didn't help the PS3 much but KZ2 sure did. And KZ on psp was more a tactical shooter and is nothing like any of the other KZ games. I can see this KZ game for the Vita being something huge. A fps with dual analog sticks, console quality graphics and hopefully gameplay, and the full KZ online experience. Like it or not you need great fps games,on top of other platforms, to survive which is something the vita doesn't really have.

All those games look great, but unfortunately the 3DS has the MH and SMT series.
CalebZachary8411  +   1003d ago
Persona 4 Golden is better than the 3DS SMT series...
Kalowest  +   1003d ago
I have P4G and it's a great game, but I'm still looking forward to SMT 4(It's the first game of the main series, in the last ten yrs) and Devil Survivor 2 Break Record.

God P4 fanboys are annoying!!!

Well, I'm not a fan boy. I will probably get the new SMT, but I just don't know if it can be better than P4G... I really don't. We will see though.

Making their memory cards cheaper would go a long way.

I always saw the Vita as more of an compliment to the PS3 than it turned out to be. I hope they find more interesting ways to incorporate it into games going forward. It could be an interesting way to change the controls.

More serious games and it will be even better then the psp. Killzone vita will prove it.

I don't see why Dragon's Crown is listed, you most likely aren't going to have a system seller that is available elsewhere.

I think in order for the Vita to really take off in the West, it needs 3 things.

1) GTA (or similar)

2) AAA exclusive FPS (Killzone could be it)

3) AAA WRPG like TES, Fallout, Mass Effect, etc.

The Vita already has lots of great JRPG's, it's got Fighters, Platformers, Action/Adventure, Racing, etc. Those types of gamers are already being catered to. The Vita needs developers to come in and start catering to the gamers that want what the Vita currently doesn't have. Every type of gamer needs to be on board.

It's gonna help tremendously if they make some great games cross compatible. I want to be able to play a legit franchise mode on Madden ps3 and be able to grab my vita and play that very same franchise. . I am particularly into sports games so I'd love to see Fight Night vita....EA ufc vita, nba 2k 14 vita, these would knock the dust off my vita! !
