Interesting, the Vita needs a game like this.

iamnsuperman1945d ago (Edited 1945d ago )

That is exactly what I said on the previous story. Nintendogs on the DS sold incredibly well (2nd best selling. Sold twenty odd million copies). On the 3DS it sold almost 3.5 million. Sony just never had this type of game which it needed. If they reduce the price and advertise this it could sell some Vitas. It isn't exactly like these games cost a great deal to make and it broadens the Vita's market which until now has been very focused on us.

Remember gamers, the casual/family friendly market is a big one. Not every release should be for us

Despite it being a blatant Nintendo Dogs ripoff; if it can help shift Vitas & show 3rd party dev's that theres a market for their games on the console, then it can only be a good thing.

This game is almost 100% guaranteed to be worse selling than NIntendo dogs.

Looks fun eh.

but hopefully Sony stops riding nintendos joy-stick.

@bullymangLer

You like nintendo very much, dont you?

Now tell me why Nintendo had to get Bayonetta eh?

Why are Nintendo riding the "joy-stick" of Sony, Microsoft and the fanbase that made the game?

Let me guess! "Looks fun eh"

Nintendo trolls are the worst.

trash food = trash mind you :/

^bully

Exactly what difference does it make to you?

You can still play your Nintendogs, nobody's stopping you...

For Vita owners, there's nothing wrong with having a copy of this to shut the kids up on a journey. Seems a welcome idea to me.

BullyMangler1945d ago (Edited 1945d ago )

yep and it looks fun .

jus saying sony needs to be more original with their exclusives no?

shame on Sony for trying to compete with the big N
in such lazy way.

Just remember this, Nintendo is king of gaming, sony is not (:

TomShoe1945d ago

If Call of Duty dog isn't in it, I'm not buying.

clearelite1945d ago (Edited 1945d ago )

Not the one with the amazing textures, woof!

The dog runs away at the end, so sad :-(``` `

On a more serious note the game looks pretty good for what it is.

this is a joke, right? right?!?

despair1945d ago

its a game that caters for a certain (and very large) audience. No pretending its not blatantly copying Nintendogs but its a good idea for the vita.

-Alpha1945d ago

That very large audience is already on Nintendo, and I don't see them switching over or purchasing a VITA for this game.

The VITA was advertised as a hardcore gamer device, and games like this are certainly welcome, but I worry about its success.

I don't mind the game-- you can't blame Sony for a developer wanting to make a game for them. I just really dislike the talking pets, it kills the charm for me. Hopefully it's a profitable game, and if an audience is found for it, more power to Sony, fans, and the developer.

HarryMasonHerpderp1945d ago

Wow this is lame.
No one would care about this normally but the problem is the Vita NEEDS some big games before releasing stuff like this. We have Killzone and Tearaway which look great but honestly there needs to be a lot more to look forward to.

Toon_Link1945d ago

This is the studio that did eye pet so I wouldn't expect a lot from them, but I do totally see where you're coming from I'd much rather see a title that interests me as a core gamer.

HarryMasonHerpderp1945d ago

Yeah I'm not really complaining about a game like this being made (different games for different people) My problem is with the timing in which they have chosen to release this. The Vita is in need of a system seller and Sonys focus should be on the hardcore gamers right now. Or at least a bigger franchise (although COD Declassified didn't help)

GryestOfBluSkies1945d ago

its not that i don't agree, i do. there is a huge market for this type of game, but they haven't laid any groundwork for it. the vita has been out for over a year and i don't recall seeing any games for kids. unless this is the start of something bigger, they are going to be very disappointed in sales

Rimeskeem1945d ago

Still not a system seller though

Kingthrash3601945d ago

its not...but killzone is in NA/EU for sure....but this is a kid attractor and vita needs that too....
but no its obviously not a system seller...your just being a di*k.

dcj05241945d ago

GOTY 2014. Tge VITA doesn't need GTA or METAL GEAR SOLID. it needs PETS!!!
