New Vita Games Will Be Announced At Gamescom

"Gamescom kicks off next week, with Sony’s conference taking place at 6pm UK time next Tuesday. While TheSixthAxis previously uncovered that it would be focused on the PS4, it seems as though that Sony’s handheld companion will get a bit of love too." (PS Vita, Sony)

No surprise there also PS Vita hardware and memory cards price drops maybe.

Price drop is pretty necessary at this point if Sony wants the system to thrive. Funny thing is that it has games, it has a lot of good ones, and the few people who own a Vita (me being one of them) buy a lot of games. I think the average is 10 games per Vita owner or something like that.

I want a memory card price drop and larger memory cards, 64GB and 128GB should do. I have like 10 games sitting on my ps3 i cant play cause i dont have memory card space.
gamer7804  +   346d ago
i'd have to disagree unfortunately, I own a vita and have hardly any games, uncharted, hot shots golf and dragons crown. Granted those 3 are really good games, I wish there were more.

@gamer7804:
Then you look at the wrong places. I highly recommend checking out

- Wipeout 2048
- Persona 4 Golden
- Valkyria Chronicles 2
- Gravity Rush
- Super Stardust Delta
- Hotline Miami
- Soul Sacrifice
- Muramasa Rebirth

In no particular order. In my opinion, Uncharted doesn't really fit on Vita despite being a good game.
KrisButtar  +   346d ago
As a fellow Vita owner, I myself have turned friends away from the purchase of a Vita because the lack of good games. There is not a title announced that I am even slightly interested in ATM. I'm also well below the average games per Vita. My PSP gets more screen time than my Vita. The price is fine. I slapped down the full price when the game released that I wanted and my friends would do the same but there is just no games they want. They should release some games that more would be interested in.

Edit: Also some titles I was interested in were released only on PSN and I don't do digital

@gamer
Get PSN plus, it pays by itself by giving you free games every month. That's one of the reason I'm complaining about the price of memory cards! If Sony releases a 64gb and drops the price of memory cards I'm very sure that a lot of people will buy more vita's.
Paul_Murphy  +   346d ago
@krisbuttar

Saying you don't do digital then lamenting the lack of games is a contradiction. The Vita is a predominantly digital system and that won't change anytime soon, you are shooting yourself in the foot.
ZodTheRipper  +   346d ago
^The Vita price is okay imo (200€ in Europe + 10 games + 8GB memory card) but the prices for the memory cards are a joke. I'm also hoping for a cheap PS4/Vita bundle, this would sell a lot of Vitas and give developers more reason to support the console. But in the end, it's all about the games and I'm looking forward to seeing new Vita&PS4 announcements.

I picked that deal up and have also been hoarding Vita Games the last few months on PS Plus, so I have about 20 plus games to keep me busy!

Still those memory card prices are eye watering and there are no excuses for SONY not to ease up on them at least!
3-4-5  +   346d ago
good news.

If Vita just keeps getting RPG's it will actually have a selling point to certain fans.

It could be THE FPS handheld as that will never happen with the 3DS because of one analog, so there is a corner of the market open to Sony just waiting to be taken.

Vita will be fine though, look at the PSP's first year.

Wasn't great, wasn't terrible, but eventually PSP got a ton of good games.
Blastoise  +   346d ago
Looking forward to it. Hope we see some cool new IP's
SirBradders  +   346d ago
Please be pso2 or type 0 or some really unexpected games.
radecGaming  +   346d ago
i really want a bioshock :(
RedSoakedSponge  +   346d ago
id rather have a version of GTAV :P
AnotherProGamer  +   346d ago
I really want a Crash Bandicoot :(
Williamson  +   346d ago
Gamescom should be great for ps4 & vita.
FunAndGun  +   346d ago
Sounds great. I know the Vita catches a lot of heat, but damn do I love my Vita!
TheGrimReaper0011  +   346d ago
Me too
If I just had to choose based on handhelds, Ps vita is my fav
- The gorgeous touch sensitive screen
- dual analog sticks
and while the library isnt big, it does have great games
- Uncharted Golden Abyss
- Gravity Rush
- Little Big Planet Vita
- Mod Nation Racers
- Unit 13
- Super Stardust Delta
- Soul Sacrifice
Already cant wait for Killzone, tearaway and rayman
GdaTyler  +   346d ago
When I played Uncharted: Golden Abyss I was blown away. I was surprised at how long the game was and how beautiful the graphics were. I thought the graphics wouldn't get any better for a while until I saw Killzone: Mercenary that exceeds my expectations by a lot. Can't wait for that and Tearaway later on this year. :)

I want to see a solid port of any AAA game coming this year or next year.
GdaTyler  +   346d ago
No more ports for now. We want an actual game made for the Vita. Actually, the Sly Collection and a Ratchet and Clank Collection won't sound too bad.
fsfsxii  +   346d ago
Port announced...
next day: VITA HAS MO GAMES!!
GusHasGas  +   346d ago
Hopefully the rumored $500 PS4/Vita bundle will also be announced.
Mr-Dude  +   346d ago
Will there be a stream?
Shredmeijster  +   346d ago
A stream will be available here, each press conference (Sony, EA and possibly Microsoft) will have a separate stream, like E3:

:)

Edit: I also have a feeling that there will be some twitch channels featuring Gamescom as well ;)

gaelic_laoch  +   346d ago
There is definitely alot of love for the Vita out there!!! I hope SONY is feelin it!!
gamepard  +   346d ago
these are good news ..Sony if you want to save vita with a simple but effective way make it backward compatible with PSP's UMD through a little separate accessorie and release more exclusive Japanese AAA title for it
sdozzo  +   346d ago
Believe it when I see it. $10 indie titles are great but won't save this system.
GdaTyler  +   346d ago
I agree with you. The indie titles are fun and all but we need some more AAA games.
remanutd55  +   346d ago
WWS need to bring it to the vita this time, Sony Bend's game, Gravity Rush 2, a new Motorstorm, new IPs would be really nice to see there.
o-Sunny-o  +   346d ago
Let the muthahumpin tea party begin!!
Go Sony bring games and memory cards price cuts. I need 64gb or higher Sony please! ^~^
Misaka_x_Touma  +   346d ago
new ip new ip new ip

is that all i ever hear from sony fans

how about ask for some classic ip that will drive the system

remanutd55  +   346d ago
Yea i want God of War, Gran Turismo to come to the vita, heck i would love to see an inFAMOUS game too. so many games!!!!! now that i think about it i want a New Sir Daniel adventure on the vita as well, Nariko's resurrection? Jack's comeback? how about Insomniac supporting the system and bringing Into the Nexus themselves?
#15.1 (Edited 346d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(3) | Report | Reply
AceBlazer13  +   346d ago
Maybe cause we don't want a console that thrives only on 4-5 good ips.

Besides I think every PS gen so far has had its own generation of mascots it's tradition to want new ips.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   346d ago
PSP had no mascots
GdaTyler  +   346d ago
How about a sequel to a relatively new IP also. Do hear about Gravity Rush 2?

@remanutd55 If an Infamous game came out for Vita. I would cry.
#15.3 (Edited 346d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
TheGrimReaper0011  +   346d ago
I know it wont happen but
I want a Crash Bandicoot 4 or Spyro 4
Or maybe even a cross-over
(but not like that GBA game)
I just imagine how nice and colorfull it would look
>__<(closses eyes and imagines the game)
#15.4 (Edited 346d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
CaptainSheep  +   346d ago
Gravity Rush 2, inFAMOUS Vita and Persona 5 please!
Hicken  +   346d ago
inFamous would fit perfectly on the Vita, and if P4G is any indication, so would a from scratch Persona.

But my most anticipated Vita game is Gravity Rush 2. The original was just SO charming, so much fun... now that I think of it, I still need to finish he military uniform mission.
sherimae2413  +   346d ago
im so inlove with that game too, my very first vita game ^_^
Plagasx  +   346d ago
Please announce a price drop and some NEW IPs for the handheld ffs...

phantomexe  +   346d ago
Legend of the dragoon 2..... it be nice
xxPillsxx  +   346d ago
Yes...yes...more games...
bulbulito  +   346d ago
I wouldn't mind getting news from the God of War franchise or new entries from some classics (Grandia / Breath of Fire / Onimusha)!
Tei777  +   346d ago
Please no more ports.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   346d ago
as much as this need to happen it probably wont
tubers  +   346d ago
"Please no more 'B-Grade' ports."

EDITED for accuracy.
Otoshigamisama  +   346d ago
If they announce Persona 5 on vita at gamescom I'm gonna be a happy man :)
sherimae2413  +   346d ago
it more likely to happen at TGS actually....
DialgaMarine  +   346d ago
Hopefully some big AAA games like Gravity Rush and Killzone. I'd imagine they'll be announcing a sequel to Golden Abyss. If they reveal that a new Gravity Rush is in development, I will literally sh*t my pants. Best game of 2012 imo.
TheGrimReaper0011  +   346d ago
Agreed
But I do hope that they will have a bit more variety in the environnement in the Uncharted sequel (if they make one ofcourse)
If I had to choose, I'd def want a Gravity Rush 2 over Uncharted Vita 2, mainly because we have uncharted on PS3 and there might be a 4th coming
I'm really looking forward to it all
DialgaMarine  +   346d ago
True. Gravity Rush 2 would be alot more welcome, but both would be fantastic. So far, Sony seems to be doing everything right with PS4, so hopefully Gamescom is great for both systems.
dcj0524  +   346d ago
PS2 classics anyone? San Andreas on VITA would be insane.
solidsheep  +   346d ago
I'm with you I missed so many great ps2 games.
Just got my Vita for my B-day and I am enjoying MGS3 and Persona4 golden.

I feel for the people that have played all the great ps2 games and have very little on the Vita.

Moster Hunter + price drop and Vita would be fine.
lifeordeath617  +   346d ago
I believe if Sony makes a sacrificial price drop with the vita like Nintendo did with 3DS, then the Vita may see a brighter future.
Luke_fon_Fabre  +   346d ago
Good.
PrimeGrime  +   346d ago
I don't see how anyone who actually owns a Vita finds the hardware expensive. For $250 and being portable it does a helluva lot.

The memory cards are the only issue really. No doubt as all hardware drops in price eventually people will get that price cut they want but in all seriousness there have been tons of chances to pick up a PS Vita for cheaper. So that kind of really annoys me people begging for a price drop when there has been a lot and I mean a lot of sales on the Vita.

For instance Target is having that sale, I think its still going you can buy a brand new Vita for $200. Yet people act like its so hard to get one for cheaper.

I kind of don't feel sorry for people who blatantly ignore all these opportunities.

My question is do you just want the Vita to get a price drop or do you actually even plan on buying one when it does? Because if it seems like most of you are just asking for a price drop and really have no intention of buying it either way. Especially with knowing how many times you could have gotten one for cheaper a long time ago and even now.

Like I said that price cut will come eventually but still with all the chances there have been to get it cheaper. It just doesn't make sense people harp on it so much.

nothing will save the vita now but games will. Sony invest in more games. your cooperation with Ken Levine just shows how uninterested you are in supporting the psvita.
sherimae2413  +   346d ago
and how did you know they are not interested, are you in the talks with them too...? you seem to know whats going on with that meeting could you please give us some bit of info ^_^
