PlayStation Vita- Uncharted: Golden Abyss Must Be Available Day One (Modojo)

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Nintendo's recent decision to drop the price of its 3DS wasn't done out of the goodness of its heart. The company's failure to capture the public interest with a $249.99 system resulted in a drastic measure to avoid a potential catastrophe.

The story is too old to be commented.

No doubt in my mind that it will be a launch title.

So should Call of Duty be because gamers want to test if the PS Vita is an FPS gamer's haven or not.

If Battlefield and Call of Duty do not make the launch of the PS Vita than, there should be a couple of other companies or indies that make a few FPS.

The PSP was pretty notorious in bringing back franchises once that dead or to niche so, the PS Vita might have some of the same appeal to game creators.

A modern spin on Unreal Tournament 2004 for the PS Vita with fun multi-player would be a good day one pick-up. As long as the shooter has a fun first player campaign with trophies and good multi-player, it would be a good experience.

Speaking of Battlefield, EA seems to be the only major "platform agnostic" publisher that have not officially revealed its games on the PSVita let alone 'silent' about them.

But there are rumors of Battlefield 3 making it on the PSVita upon launch on October 28, 2011. http://bestpsp2games.blogsp...

There will be FPS games for the PS Vita because of this current era of gaming has high interest in the FPS genre and it can be managable on a portable budget.

Combined with the fact that the PS Vita has the processing power and hardware controls to play a FPS game, there will be a few offers from companies that may or may not have experience in creating FPS titles for the PS Vita.

The thing to keep in mind for game creators and consumers is to have an open mind to imagination and to have fun making and playing games. Once it becomes an over crowded mess where ideas are a vicarious incarnation of the last game than, there should be a step back and expansion on the creative process. The PS Vita already has the console like hardware and PS Store for digital distribution so there is a lot of room for error and learning from that both for the consumer who just dropped a couple of bucks on the digital store or the creator who was just trying something new out.
