PlayStation Vita: The Essential Exclusives

Nathan Misa of MMGN: "The PS Vita has gotten a lot of flak lately for not having consistent and compelling software releases, especially exclusives, but with Gamescom 2013 revealing a slew of new games, and blockbusters Killzone: Mercenary and Tearaway on the horizon, it’s nothing but a great time to be a Vita owner.

However, that’s not to say there aren’t already several must-have exclusive games to play right now! MMGN takes a look at the best, most essential exclusive Vita games you shameful pessimists should already have played." (Gravity Rush, Killzone Mercenary, LittleBigPlanet, New Little King's Story, Persona 4 Golden, PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice, Tearaway, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Unit 13, Wipeout 2048)

That's actually a really good list. Can't say I disagree with any of them as they all deserve to be there for different reasons.

Yeah....you don't need to play Unit 13.
legionsoup  +   739d ago
That's your opinion. I found it to be awesome. I was addicted to it for a solid month or so.
GamingAngelGabriel  +   739d ago
It's ok in small doses, but I don't think it's as good as these other choices.

Very underrated game. Good shooting mechanics and good level design. Just no competitive mp or story.

Other Vita games announced, but not mentioned:

The Walking Dead (with Vita controls)
Malicious Rebirth
Ragnarock Ace

But none of those games are exclusives. Well Malicious sort of is, but is still largely the same game.

those are not Vita exclusives

Soul Sacrifice bored me to tears. Ended up trading it in.

Not gonna lie, if you own a vita and dont own P4G, go get it, Ive never smiled, fist pumped and yelled F** Yea so much in my life. Idk, theres something about that masterpiece that just makes you feel good.

But the entire list is pretty good, I didnt like uncharted though. I havent played any uncharted games before so i dont have a gauge, but im not a fan of this whole follow the straight line while listening to people talk thing.

That last sentence just described Personal 4. ;)

Not that I didn't love it as just, but just sayen!
admiralvic  +   739d ago
I wouldn't call Persona 4 Golden or New Little King Story (it's largely just a port of the Wii version with a different story) exclusives, but beyond that good list.

Great list but other than Uncharted and LB (although great) those titles are either new IPs or too niche. What the Vita needs or more "mainstream games" when that happens then the hardware will speak for itself. GTA, MGS, MH, GoW, RE, and CoD(a real one) are all titles that have the ability to begin to turn vitas fortunes around. Their the equivalent of link becoming re-energized when he touches a fairy........... That sounds bad and reads even worse.

With a 199$ price now any new vita owner will have a lot of games ready to play. People usually say "No games to play on the vita" but it would take someone a while to get through Gravity rush, Soul sacrifice, P4G(especially this game), uncharted, Dragons crown(this as well), lbp, and many more. In other words, Vita does have games.... a lot of them!

Bought a VITA just for Gravity Rush. It did not dissapoint. XBOX icon is Master Cheif, PS3 icon is Nathan Drake/Cole/Sackboy&the VITA's is KAT.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   738d ago
Cole isn't a Icon yes his games maybe popular to gamers but not to the masses.
Williamson  +   738d ago
Such a shame gravity rush wasn't advertised, I didn't see one ad on tv. Missed opportunity for a great character.

Only one I see that I would get when I have a my own Vita. Don't want to play it on my older brother Vita is Persona 4 Golden and maybe Gravity Rush.
