With today’s reveal of a Nintendogs clone for the Vita where the talking mutts will give you nightmares, Daily Reaction’s Seb and Dan discuss who the handheld’s target audience is, and who it should be. - PSLS
Come on Sony, don't let me down at gamescom.
Waiting to find out about that Pets DLC? Been waiting for that rhinestone hair brush...*Crosses fingers*
I wonder how many times I heard that before a game event where Vita suppose games will be shown. If nothing amazing or price cut or such thing that will make Vita fly off shelves then nothing left for it.
Not really. P repare for "disappointment" VITA articles year after year, major event after event for the rest of its life cycle. That's what's in store for it in N4G. There's gonna be a few sales spikes here and there but at this rate, probably nothing "ground breaking " *cough* exclusive high budget GTA/FF/KH/ES game *cough*.
Handheld's rated E for Everyone
No, they should continue making cheap knock-offs of Nintendo franchises...
.. I can't for the life of me figure out how you're still holding on at 5 bubbles...
You are one to speak Hicken
Project Phoenix!!! Like PSV is not already made for Core gamer's gaming.... Uncharted Golden Abyss Gravity Rush Dragon's Crown Toukiden God Eater 2 Walking Dead Killzone Mercenary Tearaway LBP Vita MVC 3 Blaze Blue Need for Speed Soul Sacrifice Persona 4 Muramasa Ragnarok Odyssey oh PRICE CUT!!!! Sony! Hardware and memory cards
It's being marketed as a Core gamer's console, so yes they should. People are not gonna buy PS Vita Pets when they can get a Million different clones on Tablets and Smartphones for free, or buy a 3ds much cheaper and get Nintendogs. Seriously are any Vita owners even considering this game for themselves?
"It's being marketed as a Core gamer's console" It is? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I like the ad.
Should have bee "WAS": http://www.youtube.com/watc... "Console Quality on the go".
But do those clones feature talking dogs in firefighter outfits?
I'm prepared for disagrees but I'm considering to buy the game myself just out of curiosity.
I don't care who Sony focuses on so long as I get some new software for my vita before they release a redesign.
I don't need pets for my Vita. I need real games like Saints Row Vita.
That would be horrible. What we need is a GTA vita.
Yup GTA first before Saints Row. But even if we get SR first it'd still be awesome! Vita lacks a pure-throttle action-packed bank robbing gang erasing game in its library. Also, Gravite seems to be the only great open world game the system has.
There's no reason they can't make both for the Vita. I'd buy both.
Yes they should. I didn't buy my Vita for Remote Play. I bought it to play Vita games. I could do both, but Sony clearly aren't focusing on both.
The dogs in that new Sony Vita Dog game talk? SOLD!
....they've already been doing that and it doesn't seem to be working. A Pet game here and there won't hurt anyone. Is this a 1st party game anyway? I didn't even notice.
What kind of games does a "Core Gamer" play and how many do they buy in a year? Versus "Casual Gamer" and a "Hardcore Gamer"? I'm not sure if I understand the terms, but I see them used often. Can someone give me a few statistics for all three?
The 3DS didn't come into dominance by focusing on realistic "core games". Nintendo knew the handheld niche which is casual, pick up and play games. The Vita needs unique experiences, games that aren't found on other pltforms, including home consoles. There has to be something Sony can pull out that appeals to all ages and gamer demographics. They need their Mario, their Animal Crossing, with a back-up of more "core titles" that are unique to the Vita They also need to find a way to leverage the unique aspects of the Vita, why you should pick the Vita over tablets and the 3DS. They don't need a PS3 clone, they need a game(s) uniquely "Vita"
While it's a fact that there's demand for portable "core games" like RE:R, MH, UCGA, CODBOD, AC3L, etc., yes, Sony has to find "THAT" -more casual portable software for the VITA. The VITA indeed is in a challenging time as you've already stated.
A lot is riding on coming GC for PS Vita
They are though... Really, the Vita is an Indie machine. You think "casuals" buy those games like that? One game announcement and suddenly it's not marketed towards core gamers... Oh Internet. Just look at the games we got/ are getting this year, Soul Sacrifice, Dragon's Crown, Killzone Mercenaries. Not to mention all the other cross-buy indie games like Guacamelee, Hotline Miami, Thomas Was Alone... Really... So I guess announcing one "kid's game" just throws all that out the water huh? I thought the whole point of why Sony was such a great Platform holder was because of diversity... Guess not.
If their going to rip off Nintendo at least do it with a game like fire emblem
That is a Atlus game.
What can u do in Nintendogs? Pet them feed them play with them?? Sure this isn't innovative or new but they're adding onto it. Going on adventures? I'm allergic to dogs so this is perfect.
