Video Game Franchises PlayStation Vita Needs...Or Else

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Sony's PlayStation Vita is the most powerful handheld gaming system in history.

All of its bells and whistles won't mean a thing, though, without must have video games.

The launch looks stellar, with potential hits like Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Wipeout 2048 speeding to shelves February 22.

Unfortunately, that lineup won't topple Nintendo. For Sony's portable to have a realistic shot at market dominance, it'll need to host these big time franchises. (Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, Monster Hunter 4, Monster Hunter Freedom, Monster Hunter Freedom 2, Monster Hunter Freedom 3, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, PS Vita)

Im pretty sure that Call of Duty will push the Vita in the west and a new Final Fantasy title would be killer as well. But what i would love to have is a new GTA title that would be the bomb on the Vita.
Kingdom hearts will definitely be on it. If there's one thing Nomura loves it's a spin off. (And who'd have thought that a guy with such a dark demeanor could make a game like Kingdom Hearts.) But the vita would be better off with original IP's instead of portable pre-existing ones. Luckily it has a few.

Speaking of you... I think reviving the jak franchise on the vita could be a good idea.
