"One of the absolute worst ramifications a console manufacturer can deal with is that of the lack of software at the system’s launch.
Take for example the Nintendo 3DS. Few big, recognizable names – and at that, of first party nature – were at the system’s launch, which undoubtedly led to the initial losses and swift price cut.
Eager to hit Nintendo where it hurts most, Sony has launched the PlayStation Vita with both new IP and familiar faces, most notably being Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
It’s not made by Naughty Dog, and it’s near-impossible to believe that Sony Bend have matched so perfectly the story and formula we all know and love.
Golden Abyss embodies much of the AAA excellence we expect from the Uncharted franchise, but in handheld form."
