Wow, you must be either rich or mad, to buy 7 launch titles!
Enjoy spending $500 on day 1!
remanutd55  +   1579d ago
no im not but i have a very good job so i can afford them
but perhaps i will not get them all day 1 maybe 3 or 4 the most because then i will not finish some of them , better finish a game then buy a new one but Little Big Planet , Uncharted and ModNation Racers are day 1

Yup you don't need to get them all at the same time. Spend wisely and you'll be able to afford them all. It's not rocket science it's just common sense. ;)
ReservoirDog316  +   1578d ago
If I had to pick one? Uncharted. Two? Gravity.

Gravity looks interesting. Caught my eye the fist second I saw it. I'd probably even pick it over Uncharted honestly.

Hope I can afford the PS Vita by launch day.
Ult iMate  +   1578d ago
Every time I remember this list of PSV launch titles, I hear my wallet cry.
I think I'll get Uncharted and Wipeout day one and the rest of games in next couple of months.

Golden Abyss
Cpt_kitten  +   1579d ago
uncharted and Gravity daze is all i need here to buy it day 1 if not oh well
Spenok  +   1578d ago
Totally agree. I hadnt heard about Gravit Daze before this article. But after doing some research im throughly excited for it.
Stealth2k  +   1579d ago
we dont know what the launch titles are, so BS until tgs
Mac is OK  +   1579d ago
This list sounds like wishfull thinking, I don't see Sony releasing Uncharted and LittleBigPlanet at the same time.
WrAiTh Sp3cTr3  +   1579d ago
Launch titles are the ones that have significant sale numbers. The first Resistance is an excellent indicator of that.
Dakidog  +   1579d ago
Why not? The games are 2 different genres and have their own different consumer bases, I doubt it'll be an issue.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1578d ago
Also they are two proved franchises that can do exactly what Sony wants: atract both the hardcore/older crew who wants bloody action blockbusters on the go and the casual/childs who care more about unique funny stuff. Obviously I'm exagerating on the stereotypes, but you got it, Sony can attract more people if they release big different games. If I were Sony I would also try to get a big RPG (Demon's Souls on the go anyone?) to launch with the system.

That said, we don't really know in which point of development each game is now. While we know that Vita is no longer than 6 months from releasing (assuming it don't get delayed 'till next year)... They will likely show the launch titles in TGS, but considering we haven't heard much on either game after E3 (with less than 6 months to release media usually have already plenty of previews) I wouldn't count on Uncharted or LBP just yet. There's the chance that the games are almost ready and the media is under NDA 'till Sony reveals the final list but don't get disappointed if they don't make it to launch.
Thecraft1989  +   1579d ago
UC:GA is basically confirmed the team said that was there aim and that's when it probably out.
Foxgod  +   1579d ago
All we can do is hope that certain games will launch, Sony is pretty tight lipped.
But if SF X tekken and uncharted are out on launch, il get those two.

Dwalls1171  +   1579d ago
Well according to sony vita will connect to your current psn account so...i Will be playing all those psn games
Foxgod  +   1579d ago
I suppose you will get unearthed from psn :P :)?
warrior9988  +   1579d ago
i think ruin would be awesome & cod for it will sell alot
Allowen  +   1579d ago
I will get the Vita with Uncharted only and then will wait for more games.

When Vita launches I think the 3DS will already have the new Mario Land 3D and Mario Kart 7.

Those two games are more appealing to me then Uncharted but still I preffer getting the Vita since it is more powrfull on doing multi task as other stuff that the 3Ds can't do.
r21  +   1579d ago
well for me, it'd be:
1.Gravity Daze
2.Sound Shapes
3.LBP Vita
4.Smart As
5.Uncharted Vita/Killzone Vita
remanutd55  +   1578d ago
im interested in Smart As too , do you think it will be a $39.99 game like Uncharted or LBP ? i hope more like a mini game or a $9.99 lol
r21  +   1578d ago
well, the cheaper it is,the better :D
josephayal  +   1579d ago
Street Fighter X Tekken PLZ
tarbis  +   1578d ago
Uncharted and Gravity are the 2 games I want at launch.
The rest I'll buy after I got more money =P

But other PSV titles that interests me are:
Dragon's Crown
SF x Tekken
TheDivine  +   1578d ago
Uncharted for sure. Lbp is fun but i have it on psp and never play it, kinda gets boring. I really want a vita but i think il wit for a price drop or buy used. I kinda wanna see if it gets cfw or ps2 games on the store (and a slim version with hdmi). Only other game im interested in is ruin, looks hella fun and just the idea behind it rocks! Hope its more than those same games though i mean we have modnation, lbp, wipeout, sshd, resistance, exc all on psp and ps3. I want new games. I wont buy 3 versions of sshd or lbp, no friggm way. Im sure it wil get great jrpg support though which is what made me love my psp so we'll see.

Ruin may be the hidden gem in the lineup. There are a lot of social features that are going into that game that are Demon Soulsy but new.
StarWolf  +   1578d ago
wow I didnt even know about Gravity until now. Maybe ill check out a PSV at launch . Uncharted and LBP are games that can be played on the PS3 to me but Gravity looks interesting. It just needs one or two more of these type of games, maybe an RPG and ill pre-order PSV .

Im sorry sir but its impossible to play Uncharted Golden Abyss on the PS3 and LBP as well. And the reason why i state this is because Uncharted is a brand new title and not a port of a PS3 one. Plus Little Big Planet while looking similar to the PS3 version will be different than it due to the Trackpad, Touchscreen, Cameras, tilt sensor, digital compass and GPS.

I hate it when people claim that these games are PS3 ports when in reality there not.
pain777pas  +   1578d ago
To echo Master Cornholio's point the LBP in particular will be fully intergrated with the touch controls for creation which will be the perfect fit for this game. I think that Golden abyss to a degree will be able to be played like a PS3 game but the puzzles and intuitive gyroscope camera in game camera will be new for the series.
MasterCornholio  +   1578d ago
No doubt that the Vita will have a great launch even better than the 3DS.

If i could buy 3 games at launch it would be these

1. Uncharted Golden Abyss
2. Little Big Planet
3. Ruin

Ruin look like my kind of game.
gustave154  +   1578d ago
Too many launch titles i hope they spread them around next year.
So there is no drought of games.
