PS Vita Has The 2nd Most Launch Titles Of Any System In The Last 12 Years

The Playstation Vita launch in North America is just a few days away on Wednesday February 22nd, so we thought it would be fun to see if the Vita has the most launch titles in recent history. We’ll compare the Vita to every console in the last 12 years: The PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, PSP, PS3, Wii, and 3DS. (3DS, GameCube, Nintendo DS, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

If you need a portable console with power...I believe PS Vita is the way to go.
TrendyGamers  +   1327d ago
I can't wait to pick mine up.
S_C  +   1327d ago
Got mine pre ordered also. Cant wait for summer now, hot weather and after being out with the mates coming home releaxing outside with the vita and catching a tan while gaming. Good Stuff

If you look at the article, the best selling consoles also had the biggest launch lineups. Looks like the VITA is destined for PS2 sales territory.

I have to wait for a while before I buy one but the first game i'm picking up is gravity daze, that game looks quality!
jeseth  +   1326d ago
I'm so tempted to buy the Vita! I wanted to hold out but the lineup and connectivity on the go is awesome.

Marvel vs. Capcom online throw downs at Panera Bread? Why not! Oh man! And looks so sexy!!! Damnnnnit!

Does anyone know if the Vita screen is viewable in sunlight?
GraveLord  +   1327d ago
Power is just a bonus. Just look at the games. Lots of great games at launch and some big games coming later in the year.

You guys better make that day free lol I got mine and have been on it since wednesday! THIS THING IS BEAST!!! I LOVE IT :)
TooTall19  +   1326d ago
Vita also has the best launch day demos. Every shooter fan should download the Unit 13 demo. It will have leaderboards and your stats transfer over to the final game.
teedogg80  +   1327d ago
It's the only way to go.
RedDead  +   1326d ago
I can't wait for a price drop!
RioKing  +   1326d ago
You're gonna have too ;)

Great news
TrendyGamers  +   1327d ago
It's funny to see just how many Wii launch games were ports.
TruthBTold  +   1327d ago
Been waiting ever for the vita to come but its always harder when you are close to release date. Just two more days baby!
TrendyGamers  +   1327d ago
I just wish stores were doing midnight openings, it would make the wait so much easier.
skrug  +   1326d ago
I have been playing mine for the last few days and it's so awesome *_*
Codeman420  +   1327d ago
cant wait for others to pick there's up so Near can actually be worth something. Been playing UCGA and rayman but want to see how well near works. PPL just need to share their IDs so it can be awesome.
SoundGamer  +   1326d ago
In my area I have seen a peak of 50 people using their Vita and Near.

I'm excited to see how many will have it when it actually launches.
Knight_Cid  +   1327d ago
quantity aint quality,and quantity doesnt equal sales

lets keep everything in perspective
FriedGoat  +   1327d ago
You mean your perspective of NINTENGOGGLES.
Knight_Cid  +   1327d ago
did I bring up the fact that the 3ds is the number 1 system worldwide in 9 months in 2011 or that it has outsold every other nintendo system at the same point in time? Did I bring up articles like all vita support is being moved to the 3ds? no

No. Trolls look from trolls in other people.

All I said was too keep all of this in perspective because especially when it comes to launches people over react positively and negatively.

We wont know the true strength or weakness of this system until many many many years from now.

The 3ds launch lineup got mixed reviews, sold well at launch, DOOM, and then it stormed back to be the most successful system of the year.

The vita lineup also got mixed reviews, isnt selling so well at launch, DOOM, and _________________

its story hasnt been finished yet

the last thing we need is nerd fanboy postering

^Actually you just did bring all of that up. Oh, and some of your facts are wrong. Sorry.

As for the Vita's line up is better than ANY playstation in the past and I'd say better than any portable as well. GBA, DS, PSP, etc really didn't have that great of launch titles.

Knight_Cid  +   1327d ago
I brought it up to make a fact. And not a single fact I said is incorrect. Hell the first fiscal year isnt even over yet and its 16_ mil strong.

I just hope the vita gets to be that strong like the psp was.

The best launch lineups in history were the dreamcast,gba,psp. The vita is a very close fourth.

@ below

That wasnt a fact, that was an article. One I dont particularly believe but it was still out there.

tony hawk, twisted metal, wipe out, METAL GEAR, ape escape, darkstalkers were incredible.

And like I said before quantity means nothing, and quality is opinion.

So you as well are coming off as insecure.

SoapShoes  +   1327d ago
Oh well that's too bad but Vita 3rd party support is still there and isn't going anywhere yet. That may be the case in the future but not right now.

Oh and the PSP launch sucked. Twisted Metal and WipEout were great but it lacked and lacked afterwards. The Vita by FAR surpasses the PSP in quality and quantity.

*Response to your edit* I'm not looking insecure at all and if you accuse me of looking insecure then anyone could say the same of you! Myself as well as many others didn't think the PSP launch was that great and I loved the PSP WAAAYYY more than the DS so it's not like I'm hating on it for no reason.

Second time I have seen you harping on about this. What's your problem any way? They said VITA has 2nd most launch titles of any system in the last 12 years, fact. And you keep going on about quality and quantity and all type of nonsense.

No one denied, accused or claimed that VITA titles have or haven't any quality games and yet you are going on about it.So far most VITA titles have made above average scores so I would say that has a pretty decent launch titles. If you think otherwise that is your OPINION, not fact.
MasterCornholio  +   1327d ago
Well the 3DS had very few launch titles and most of them were very low quality. So I don't see why a handheld can't release a large quantity of quality titles. Like in the Vitas case. But that is just my opinion and that of many journalists.

Protagonist  +   1327d ago
Good point MasterCornholio, but some choose ignore everything the 3DS had to go through, before it became a succes.

SSX and Tekken Tag Tournament were the two PS2 launch games I picked up.
supremacy  +   1327d ago
2nd? really? http://iamportable.com/ps-v... I dont know,maybe we need todo a recount here.

Either way its good news.

I look like such a PS fanboy, I'm going to get a Vita and I basically do all my gaming on my PS3, PSP and Xperia Play. Sony why are soooooo good at what you do ?
bumnut  +   1327d ago
If you only game on Sony systems you are a fanboy :)
Hicken  +   1327d ago
If he HATED all other systems while only gaming on Sony consoles, he'd be a fanboy.

Looking in his comment history, I don't see any hate, so I don't see a fanboy.

You want fanboy? Take a look at Knight_Cid above.
Liquid_Ocelot  +   1326d ago
I'm a fanboy :)
bumnut  +   1326d ago
I see humour is lost on some people. It was only a joke!

I didn't bash Sony in any way so whats the problem?

Doesn't make you a fanboy if it is a personal choice to enjoy games, what does is making that choice because of the name Sony only.
gamingisnotacrime  +   1327d ago
The Vita line up has something for everyone
there is quantity and top notch quality (e.a. Uncharted)
maverick40  +   1327d ago
I just completed golden abyss and i can tell you now. it is best launch title for any system.....wow
Mikhail  +   1327d ago
Sony's approach is to take the west market based on the launch lineup. They also target those who have a Ps3 and a PSP. Japan was seemingly a testing ground for them. Why? Never launch an uncharted in Japan as your killer software when your has mario and MH.
phinch  +   1327d ago
Sony really have learnt there lesson, ps3 was slated for having "no games" on release, they really have tried this time and fair play to them, they have a sale off me for this effort
Tripl3seis  +   1326d ago
cant wait for mine i just bought uncharted and wipeout 2048 at walmart this morning i just need my vita to get here 2 more days aaahhh!!!!!!
dukegodtezza  +   1326d ago
why is this in the xbox tab ???
monkey602  +   1326d ago
I've had one for the last few days. It's not mine it's belong to the shop I work in but I have to say they are a brilliant little machine. There are a few things I didnt get to try like the Store and some other online functions because they arent active in my country yet. I look forward to having my own but I might have to wait until the games I want drop in price. 50euro for Lumines and Dungeon Hunter stings too much.
P.S. Uncharted Golden Abyss looks FANTASTIC for a handheld game - the aiming takes some getting used to though :P
videoxgamexfanboy  +   1326d ago
i have a vita and so far the only game im enjoying is shinobido 2. no other launch game caught my eye. UCG
A is more of the same so i passed on it. cant wait for real vita games

Will be picking vita up after the first price drop and more games come out. Looks freaking sweet.
Feldman9000  +   1326d ago
If you have not purchased and plan to, Target is where it's at. You get a free 4GB card with the wifi version. And they also have buy two games get one free.
