But none of these games will move Vitas off store shelves. That task will fall to Uncharted: Golden Abyss. This wholly original Vita exclusive looks nearly as good as the original Uncharted running on PlayStation 3. And, thanks to those two thumbsticks – one devoted to movement, the other to control the camera – it plays almost identically to the franchise’s console editions.
With perhaps the exception of the God of War games for PSP, this was the first time that console-quality game on a portable device without making sacrifices in terms of controls or graphics. Mobile phone, iPad, and even 3DS games simply can’t match the uncompromising standards of Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
