Top Five Most Anticipated PlayStation Vita Launch Games

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Now that Sony's December 17 Japanese launch date for PlayStation Vita is set in stone, we can move on to the task at hand: figuring out which of the 20 plus launch games we most want to play.

The story is too old to be commented.

is Little Big Planet a launch title ?

Canary2437d ago

I thought it was.

But it's already had a PSP release, and 2 PS3 releases, so one would think newer IPs would be more anticipated.

Well, not that the list actually has many of the newer IPs.

Biggest launch titles I'm anticipating are Gravity Rush and Ruin.

Actually, after googling it, these are the launch games:

Army Corps of Hell
Disgaea 3 Returns
Gravity Rush
Hot Shots Golf Next
Hustle Kings Vita
LittleBigPlanet Vita
Little Deviants
Lord of Apocalypse
ModNation Racers
Reality Fighters
Sound Shapes
Super Stardust Delta
Uncharted: Golden Abyss
WipEout 2048

Not a whole lot there to interest me, or a whole lot, period. But from what I understand, Sony intends to have a pretty steady release schedule for Vita titles, so we shouldn't run into the whole, "4 months until a single decent-looking game gets released" thing we've had with the 3DS.

thats the japanese launch title list right ? well i hope Uncharted Golden Abyss , Little Big Planet , Little Deviants and Gravity Rush are part of the NA launch titles

@ Canary
You're missing at least 11 games because the Japanese launch features 26 games total.

By the time it comes to the US and EU more games will obviously be available. We don't even know what all games are coming stateside yet. Obviously we know Uncharted, Ruin, and Gravity Daze/Rush will be there at launch but we don't know what other titles will be there for the western countries. I'm sure that list is old news from E3.

Not a bad list...when the system comes to the US, I will def add wipeout and sound shapes to the list. :)

Canary2437d ago

It's not *my* list, people. It's the list of launch titles for the Vita that came up after googling "PS Vita launch titles." It's from IGN.

And, Misterhbk, I'm not sure that's a wise assumption. If the rumors are true, Vita is barely launching 1 month later in North America than in Japan. That's not enough time to accumulate a lot more titles. Though it's possible that's an old E3 list. Like I said, it's IGN's list, not mine.

Personally, though I'm excited for the Vita games that have been announced, I'm also wary. I remember all too well the number of PS3 games that were announced at, soon after and before launch, that either were cancelled, went into limbo, or were delayed indefinitely.

I think LBP is on track for the U.S. launch.

NukaCola2436d ago

Probably this. Us and EU launch, most likely a day apart.

Protagonist2437d ago

Gravity Rush is must buy launch title for me.
Army Corps of Hell looks really interesting.
Ruin & WipEout 2048 might be something to get.
I always enjoyed LBP.

And we all know Uncharted: Golden Abyss will be a killer app.
I also got my PSP titles from PSN.

And I hope P4: The Golden wont be to long into the future.


Buff10442437d ago

Agreed. I was initially a bit down on the system, but now business has def picked up.

mr_epsym_knird2437d ago

Gravity Rush
Escape Plan
Rayman Origins
Final Fantasy X HD
Ragnarok Odyssey
Little King Story

Should all be there IMO.

Buff10442437d ago

Little King Story? Is that the same game that appeared on the Wii? Is that confirmed?

From Wiki

On August 24, 2011, it was announced that Marvelous Entertainment is working on a sequel to Little King's Story titled Ō to Maō to 7 Nin no Himegimi Tachi ~Shin Ōsama Monogatari~ (王と魔王と7人の姫君たち~新・王様物語~?, lit. "The King, The Demon King and the 7 Princesses: New King Story") to be published by Konami for the PlayStation Vita. According to Famitsu, the game will have "love elements, along with new visual stylings for its characters."
