PSLS: Sony’s director of hardware marketing John Koller has spilled the beans on some AAA releases due only a few short months after launch that are poised to sustain Sony’s new portable beast.
Wow! Definitely pulling out the big guns here. 3DS, your response?
Luigis Mansion and Kid Icarus? Just saying that Nintendo has some pretty big games coming out for the 3DS in the near future. XperiaRay
3DS reponse is out there, it's called the trinity in Japan = MK7 + SM3D + Ex-PSP-Franchise Exclusive Sequel called Monster Hunter TG, although, outside of Japan nobody gives a F*** about MH lol Idk, unless COD Vita becomes a success, Cross Platform Gaming becomes a must feature for people and Real Support from SCE Top Tier Developers is done (and talking about New IPs exclusive to the Portable, not spin-offs and s***), I can't see the Vita doing that good, best case scenario would be matching PSP sales, not good when the idea is to increase marketshare :P Edit Also, SCE needs to communicate what's the purpose of 3G, I don't see why I'd pay $25 per month to use a browser without flash and sync trophies, GPS is nice the first time, the you stop caring... is it for XGC? there will be games capable of playing online with 3G? (don't think so) why a 2GB cap? it isn't to dd games, as there are bigger games than the typical IOS s***, in that case why have it?
Really? Luigis Mansion and Kid lucarus? LOL! I dont think they really match up to COD, MK and AC. so LOL!
Yeah...Luigi's Mansion and Kid Icarus ain't gonna do big numbers. Feel free to bookmark this post. I'll bet 3 million TOPS for either game. As for Mario Kart 7, Super Mario Land 3D, and Monster Hunter...yeah, those are big games NOW, but what is the 3DS's response when Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, etc hit the Vita? Hmmm? Yeah, that's what I thought. Nintendo obviously isn't going to release yet another Mario Kart or another Mario Land game next year, so what do they have up their sleeve? Kid Icarus? Yeahh...
Healthy Competition= Win-Win Situation! Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!
to bad more than half of the people buying those games are younger than 14
Sounds like someone's jealous of the PS Vita or stuck with a 3DS. The Vita has new IPs(get informed) and has less spin-offs than the 3DS has remakes. And you don't have to pay anything to use the Web browser which uses HTML5 btw (again, get informed). I understand that you can't get a lot of its features on the 3DS, but no need to pull sh** out of your ass like that. Nice try though.
lots and lots of mario
And then more Mario, another veritable Ocarina remake, metroid, Mario, Mario, and perhaps even some Mario.
Well none of the games listed in the title are really kid friendly so eh..
Metroid? I wish dude. Nintendo won't even support that franchise properly.
When the marketing for vita picks up more info about these games needs to be announced especially COD. People will see the ads and looks to see what games it has and it would be beneficial if they see COD with some footage or recent news about it. btw doesnt 3ds have its own assasins creed game in the making aswell? Hopefully its not the same game as the vita one it would be gimped and that would not be good.
Sony shouldn't wait till E3 to show off COD, they should show it to the mainstream TV watchers as soon as Acti lets them
I thought Ubisoft cancelled Assasins Creed on the 3DS. XperiaRay
oh and dont forget about that bioshock game thats another heavy hitter but it will probably release much later.
so the vita gets 3 ports of games people already have on consoles. The 3ds gets kindgom hearts, a new image epoch game, a new level 5 game new content. Ask sony about how ports are going over in japan...........they arent selling
Of course ignoring the ports that that the 3DS is getting as usual. The VITA will sell better in Japan once games like Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, Dynasty Warriors, DJMAX and Sumioni come out. @ remanutd55. It's it convenient that people only concentrate on what ports the VITA is getting instead of being excited for all the new games we are getting like Gravity Rush, Dragon's Crown, Escape Plan, Shinobo, Sound Shapes,Warrior's Lair etc. I can't believe after the list of games that you have seen that aren't mere sequels or ports that people are still using that as a stupid excuse. 'Why should I buy a VITA when I can just buy UC3 and R3 for the PS3'. Get current or shut up.
Ports? Nintendo has mastered the art of porting games from older systems to bolster their library. I'm not saying it isn't working, but they are lacking on the "new content" front. Their first- party games for the 3DS are mostly blatant ports/remasters of the same tired franchises. Franchises that have so high of a number sequels that it makes Final Fantasy look like a child in comparison.
Lol and the 3ds has been getting alot of remakes dont you think?
As much as I can't stand COD, that is going to be HUGE for the PSVita. It should move many many systems, which I'm all for. The more Vita sold, the more Sony will take chances w/ original creative IPs.
It's amazing how kids will get their parents to buy them a Vita for the same game they got on... consoles. And I doubt their parents are gonna get the 3G version, so don't say he can "CoD online on the go!" because my Wi-Fi lasts until the end of the street... and we're a house away from that street. You know, I'm all for supporting Vita, but I don't want to find some CoD-kid hopping on the multiplayer of another game I have and spreading their crap around. Oh, and it's funny (yeah, I'm about to go slightly off-topic) because the voice actors *several of them, anyway) for MW3 were just telling stories of getting recognized by parents that ended up calling their kids. So, they definitely know who the main audience of that franchise is. Anyway, I'm gonna end up on something my dog was boning earlier if I keep on, so this comment shall now end... because I apparently ahve to announce it.
Resident Evil Revelations. And what do you mean what's the 3DS's response? What's the Vita's response for getting Monster Hunter STOLEN? Jus saying, these 3 games put together still don't match up to the importance Monster Hunter has in the handheld market.
This is a juicy piece of news right here, and their plan actually sounds like it may actually work. Although I want EVERY SINGLE VITA GAME on launch LOL But to release the major titles in different periods is a good idea. A few other titles that would make me jizz would be Gran Turismo, Killzone and Battlefield! I really can't wait for the VITA, just over 38 days left guys!! It's so close I can taste it! I can taste LIFE!
If their ports I dont care and alot of people wont either. I hope the MK game is a Shaolin Monks type game wit hSub-zero and Scorpion the one that got canceled. SM was a really under rated game.
Dedicatedtogamers, you say 3 million aren't big numbers, and yet for portable games that phenomenal. How many PSP games or core DS games aside from Nintendo's first party ones do you know that sold that much. Get out of here with your foolishness.
And once Pokemon gets released to the 3DS.. Sony your response? Hate to say it but the big N has some powerful crack against the VITA. Not that I really care tho. Don't like those games (except the 2d old mario games).
For me. COD to stop people whining about sales.
Yeah, I think COD on the go is Sony's ace up their sleeve.
CoD will move a lot of units... especially with the dual analog sticks.
it better not be gimped like some of the vita games that for no reason dont have the multiplayer in them.
Agree 100% So many COD fans will get a VITA just for COD. But with that being said the online capabilties have to be there. Half the people I know who play COD havent even played the SP (Alot of people are the same) Anyway all this talk about the VITA being doomed is BS mainly sites trying to create drama for hits a sad fact of game journalisim today.
@metsgaming Are you honestly stupid? CoD is known ONLY for their multipalyer experience, if CoD had no Multiplayer, there would be no CoD. They're smart enough to know that after their last 4 games broke sales records. I am willing to bet my future VITA! That's how sure I am that CoD for VITA will have Multiplayer! But Activision/Infinity Ward need to be smart here. They need to create a 3v3 or 2v2 match for the 3G network as it can't handle too much bandwidth. If they can pull something like that off, the VITA will sell more units than any hand held EVER.
MK for me and god i hope i never run into someone playing cod on the Vita and hear him rage then again it will be funny if i do xD.
I'd rather be sat next to a screaming baby on the bus than some kid raging at his CoD game, despite them being the same thing.
Do you mean run into him in real life or in-game? If you meant in-game I'm pretty sure it would operate on different servers!
Fingers crossed that COD Vita will actually be released in 2012, because that would be a huge killer app for them.
They are bringing the heavy hitters . the vita will give you that handheld console experience the PSP coouldnt deliver on
that is what im hoping for
Having a true console like COD on the VIta would do wonders. COD multiplayer on the go? yes please.
i hate to break it to you but its going to sell as poorly as other call of duty ports. because its on so many systems it doesnt push systems
i disagree, the Vita is capable of delivering a console COD experience. Being able to play the full COD mp on the go sounds very intriguing. It won't do console numbers but it will still do well. No other handheld can offer a true console experience.
I also disagree, I know quite a few people who would like a real cod on the go. I won't be buying it though, I want resistance and killzone.
Apparently you've never heard of a system called "Xbox 360". Every year when the new CoD comes out, 360 sales and XBL Gold subscriptions skyrocket.
Don't you need online on the go to play CoD's mp? Which either means you'll have to find some kind of wifi spot, or leech of your phone if you have a plan or maybe buy the 3G version if that works. Neither of those options sound that appealing to me. Games like MortalKombat make more sense to me for a portable system.
i want them all! i get butterflys in my stomach when i read those game titles on a handheld!!!! (does that make me sad? :( ) handhelds is what got me in to gaming starting from the very first gameboy when i was a kid
You have butterflies in yóur stomach? They're in my head.
if they don't do well though then i doubt third parties will keep developing for it and thats a huge problem
COD's not doing well.
do you need a history lesson of COD port sales? and there effect on systems? COD handheld games dont sell and they dont push systems Would you buy cod on the vita or on the ps3,360,pc? Nobody would buy it on the 3ds either
1) That's cheap ports. 2) This is the first handheld with proper multiplayer support, the backbone of the COD franchise.
@ slade, this well be the first cod game on a portable that will utilize 2 analog sticks. That in itself trumps all previous cod ports. Also, I thought I heard the cod vita will be an original title (could be wrong on that)
doctorstrange is right. PS Vita can do what consoles can do. 2 Thumbsticks, Full Multiplayer Online experience as consoles, full PSN service, and at the hardware and performance from COD, PS Vita can run as good as consoles at 60FPS because it have the capabilities.
Those other titles are also doable on the 3DS, since even the PSP received those franchises. I'm not denying the Vita's potential success from that awesome lineup of software. I'm just bringing it to people's attention that, "those or 3rd party games", and they're available on a wide variety of different hardware.
Yes, but will they be more cheap ports or actual versions like the Vita is getting? Lets also not forget the PS3 to PSV sharing we will see too. If I could play my same account online with the same COD both at home and on the go....well who wins? Its like saying the rail shooter Dead Space is the same as Dead Space 2 on PS3. "Dead Space is on Wii too!" If anything this will force Nintendo to step up a bit more and that is always a good thing.
Games that are ports from Consoles are the ones that you will likely seen on both handhelds. Fifa 12 is on the 3DS and Vita, even Modern Warfare 3 is on the DS. Games announced for the Vita are unlikely to see a 3DS version though because they've been tailor made for the Vita. Rememeber they cancelled Assasin's Creed Lost Legacy on the 3DS while the Vita's getting Assasin's Creed Virtues. Similar situation with the PSP and DS. The Assasin's creed on the DS is a lot different to that on the Vita. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... If the DS gets COD then of course the 3DS will get COD but it would not be close to a COD made for the Vita.
If they announce Battlefield I will go start camping at Gamestop right now lol
Ye. BF and I'll be right beside you.
I join you!
Well, considering Sony sucks at marketing games, they might not sell as well as you might think.
And the dislikes pile up because I made an opinion that went against Sony... wow.
Sony is responsible for marketing all third party games now?
I hope one day we can see who agreed or disagreed. It's too easy for people behind their monitors to just disagree with someone,when: - the guy didn't even read your comment - the guy disagrees just for the pleasure of disagreeing, - the guy don't give a phoq about people or game or comment, disagreeing is just a way to release his frustations on his real life,if he has one - the guy disagrees because in life, he don't get any respect from people, by disagreeing here, he becomes a bad boy, a tough one. - the guy is so stupid and idiot, he will disagree even if the comment is "I like videogames" - the guy is just a 12yo kid who wants to break the global order and peace,and wants to be an adult, by disagreeing with factual,real,confirmed comments,which all the planet agrees - the guy is just a fanboy and a hater, who can't get a ps3 because daddy already spent a lot of money as his favourite console keeps dying over and over,and since he is jealous of the almost 70million clever people who bought a ps3,he comes here, and click on disagree on every comment on the ps3 section. If we could see who disagreed, people would get less agrees and disagrees,but at least, when someone clicked on disagree, he would have to justify it, by making a comment.that would lead to real and respectful conversations, real debates and interesting stories,where people would focus more intensively on the content,instead of "how many disagrees or agrees will I collect". How many times do people write something or some important information, and the guy gets 20 disagrees..after that,he just wants to make a mass disagree on 100 people. I accept the fact that many will disagree with my post,because they prefer to stay hidden. But for all the adults that would like to see every story and its comments as a source of knowledge, with interesting debates and ideas,and not just a top ten of "who will get more disagrees",well,those clever adults,that spend a big amount of their time reading and posting comments,maybe they will agree with me.
That is the best comment in N4G history. BTW, that wasn't sarcasm, it really is!
well there you have it , Vita gets new content like Gravity Rush , Sound Shapes , Little Deviants , Lair's warrior , Escape Plan , Unit 13 and others and it gets big franchises like Uncharted , Little Big Planet , Motorstorm , Resistance , Killzone , Assassins Creed , Call of Duty , Mortal Kombat and others so yea i think vita launch and post launch line up will be the best on a playstation system EVER
Now i want a Vita.
Cool, now N4G can finally enchant CoD. Sales = Quality.
