Good riddance, Luigi. Five reasons why 2014 will be The Year of Vita

Pocket Gamer's Peter Willington writes "While we were all (allegedly) celebrating the plumber in green's moment in the sun last year, the PlayStation Vita entered the public consciousness to a greater extent and became home to a surprisingly large number of great indie games. 2014 will assuredly be The Year of the Vita, then. And here's why."

vita is the most awesome gaming handheld ever. Still nintendo ds/3ds has the better library of games. Vita has a relatively low userbase, but that is about to change. With more users comes more games -> everyone wins!

Vita needs exclusive franchises, playable only on itself; not copycat side-kicks of big franchises, unless it brings originality. For example Sony can bring back Legend of Dragoon into PS Vita. Exclusive a new arcade racing...

* Bravely Default
* Super Smash Brothers
* Mario Golf: World Tour
* Kirby: Triple Deluxe
* Yoshi's New Story
* One Piece
* Moon Chronicles
* Treasurenauts
* Grinsia
* Conception 2 - Although I admit, Vita version should be the better version
* Shovel Knight
* Professor Layton

3DS is going to have a pretty good year as well.

2014 is the start of Vita getting better though, and even 2015 should be better for it.

* Definitely getting a Vita, waiting for the Slim news though, and hoping for FFX special edition which prob won't happen.

PS4's success could boost Vita sales, but thinking it will somehow overtake or replace Nintendo's handhelds is a little unrealistic.

I fear they will get to thinking remote play will sell the system. I noticed Ready at Dawn, one of their big portable devs is making ps4 games now. It needs more games that are designed with portability in mind, stuff like wipeout and uncharted are good games but feel too console-y.

i agree with this. 3ds still is the best console in terms of its gaming library. the vita will probably end up playing catch up with its main competitor for the rest of its lifetime but i hope that it won't be for a wide margin.

Bought my 3G/wifi Vita for £139 with Killzone/Tennis/8gb Memory. Great price for what I got. And if that was the official price I'm sure more would pick it up.

Then Sony desperately need to cut the price of memory cards, probably by half. They are ridiculous. I want the 64gb card but it cost anywhere between £80-£120 in the UK, so almost as much as the console.

Looking forward to Freedom Wars and that surprise RPG.

That last reason is a stretch. Ill be impressed if sony doubles Vita's hardware sales in 2014 compared to 2013. Just have to wait and see tho.

wheresmymonkey1703d ago

That's not that impressive when you look at how few units its sold last year.

DEATHxTHExKIDx1702d ago

I know thats why it will be interesting to see if they can even pull it off.
