We have listed the very few announcements made for the PS Vita at this years disappointing E3 2015. I am not sure fans could be any more angry with how Sony handled the PS Vita at E3 2015.
yeah.. Vita was basically swept under the rug at this E3.
It needed to be that way. The Vita just doesn't sell itself nor software that appears on it. Sony has made it pretty clear it is time to move away from it (Vita TV, remote play on phones....) and I agree with that philosophy. It is the risk of supporting unpopular platforms (hell I own one so I would know)
vita cannot sell without support from the manufacturer. PS4 sells because of the massive support it is getting, but it started from Sony first. Sony gives developers and publishers the confidence that their machine is the best to develop for. People cannot just go buy vitas for no reason. i'm looking forward to world of FF, but what is the next big triple A title coming out? none!
E3 isn't the Vita's show, Tokyo Game Show is!
Pretty much, those JP games is what I care for on and indies tbh.
It would make no business sense for the Vita to be on stage considering it isn't meeting sales expectations but I love how these sites are leaching on to little things to somehow try and downplay how awesome Sonys conference was this year
Digital software sells very well on PS Vita. Problem is getting anyone besides Die Hard gamer's to buy it, just doesn't seem to have casual consumer appeal and that's the market you need for a hand held system to succeed. Casual adult gamer's have their cell phones. Children are a huge part of the 3DS market. PS vita doesn't have that much appeal to children or parents, 3DS does. PSV is just a tough fit for the mobile gaming market. That said I think the Vita is successful enough, just probably will not ever be massively successful.
pretty sure it's the games that sell the 3DS, not children. Have you seen how many multimillion sellers the 3DS has? Games like Monster Hunter, Pokemon etc are the reason this handheld sells in droves. Especially in Japan.
It's bought for children by adults because of the games, yes. majority of market for 3DS is children. anyone who buy a games system buy them for games, Isn't that obvious or should I have used flash cards. What is your argument, or do you just like to argue. I didn't say anything negative about 3DS.
Vita is Dead
Sony slave my butt, it's not dead look that word up and learn it.
Dead my a**!
Shouldn't be of any surprise since it was categorized as a legacy device. A quick flash of the Vita on the screen was the only recognition it got.
It needs some new games, something to catch people's eyes, I was in game stop a month back after not keeping up to date with the vita for a long time, I decided to take a look at what's new and was surprised to only see a few Japanese magna looking games new.
So wait your complaining that there aren't new games after confirming that there are new games? Looks more like you just don't like Japanese games, which are the bread and butter of the Vita right now. P.S. Before anybody replies complaining about JRPG's, there are more than one genre that comes out of Japan, it's like complaining about buying an American game just because your tired of FPS's.
Dude it's like 3 or 4 Japanese games in a whole year, hardly a lot being released is it, your trying to sound intelligent but your not and i'm not complaining i'm stating a fact.
3DS - Japanese games, Nintendo games and indie games Vita - Japanese games, Psp/Ps4/Ps3 ports and Indie games Majority of western developers tend to focus on mobile platforms (iOS, Android, WP8+) so they don't really give a damn about handheld platforms. IF you don't want to play Japanese games, don't buy a handheld.
where gravity rush 2 :(
If it doesnt show at TGS I will be Pissed. I personally bought my Vita for Gravity Rush franchise.
Aw man !
if they can release ps2 games, it doesn't matter if hd or not then I'm good with my vita. I Can't survive with indies alone.
The Vita's a legacy system just like Sony's said I guess.
Let the vita rest in peace.
It just needs a good exclusive game that really catches the attention of Nintendo 3DS fans. But as it is, most people buy the PS Vita online and buy games for it online. They also tend to play their Vitas at least 20~40 hours a week based off Sony's figures. So it's a small, dedicated community of indie game fans.
Try to compete with 3ds is wrong. PS Vita has to find their own customer. No publisher including SCE do that. SCE tried to do it first, but they gave up and set vita as accessory of PS4.
The success of PS4 is actually the greatest strength Vita has. I am seeing somewhat a trend here where a lot smaller scale and digital titles PS3/PS4 games are being ported to the system. Senran Kagura estival Versus, TTG adventure games, World of Final Fantasy, Mighty Number 9, Abe's New'n'tasty and Minecraft are only few examples. Many players ignore a lot of these games just because they are available on other platforms. 3DS simply can't handle these "traditional" not double screen games like the upcoming Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night which will likely be amazing on Vita. Due to this PSV actually has far bigger catalog of games (even western ones) than many might initially think.
pretty sure it's the UE4 thing as to why the 3DS can't run Bloodstained. Has nothing to do with the system being dual screen and thus not ideal. Ever played any of the Castlevania games on the DS? There were some fantastic games there.
Just sold my Vita, games and accessories and feel so lucky to have parted with it. I love my PS4 but can't for the life of me understand how Sony could fail so miserably with their handheld.
Does no one at Sony see the potential the handheld has? Does no one believe in it anymore? It's my favorite handheld console of all time, I love the features it has to offer, I stand up for it all the time. Hell, there were articles on here from PSX when I asked big name devs from Sony, such as Jaffe and Druckmann, if they believed in the potential of the handheld, and in response, Jaffe himself pulled a white Vita from his pocket. It made me so hopeful, I believed that someone within Sony might feel the way that I and other Vita fans do. But after this, it just feels like no one cares at all. All I can do is ask, what can be done to save the Vita? How can the people who cling to the Vita spur interest in a system that the company that created it doesn't even show confidence in?
Remote Play and PS now, are trying to keep the Vita alive. PS Vue would be awesome on the Vita! I love my Vita, but I can't say Sony did a good job at E3 when it comes to the Vita. Good thing they showered me with PS4 games over and over and over. Horizon remote play at work? Yeah the Vita is not dead, just think of the 1st party games need to be remote played is all.
