The Vita isn't getting the same kind of attention these days, and it's because we're not seeing too many games for it. Bring on the games; get the hype back up!
yea, it needs that second wave.
... Also, the VITA does not JUST need new games to pick up the slack. There is something wrong when the PSP owners I know do not have a PS VITA nor plan on buying one anytime soon. Just 'having more games' is not really solving the problem that not enough people actually own the console. Otherwise, yeah I would like to see some more cool games. I can already think of a few Japanese games I want to see come to the US.
would have thought Sony would take the opportunity to bring over some Japanese Vita games in this game shortage, but Sony stay true to their shity publishing, they even left Dragons Crown in limbo till Atlus picked it up. if their is one thing under-estimatedly hurting Sony it is their publishing, it unravels a lot of their hard-work
the large catalog of psp titles that ARENT supported as well as the thought of repurchasing them in digital form. For me it is easier to snag up umd's for cheap on games I want to play. Would I like to play them on the vita in digital form? Of course but the cost isnt worth it. And that is because the later outweighs the current when it comes to title selection. Although, its a natural progression for better titles to come out for the vita while development begins to slow for the psp. It happened for pretty much all previous platforms both console and portable. The psp is on the down slope now, it is just going down at a slower rate due to it still being a viable platform for sony to make $$$ from. It wont be forever (obviously) and the vita will pick up speed soon enough.
If only there was some large, upcoming gaming event at which Sony could take the opportunity to highlight some upcoming games...
In the mean time sales continue to dwindle every single week. E3 is far away, if they don't do something soon, they'll not only continue to see a drop in sales, but a drop in interest from existing customers.
They also need a price cut but they cant afford to do that. Its on life support in Japan
Dude, everytime I see u comments its always Sony negative.
So what? Is Sony going to do some irreparable harm by letting a month go by? Is anyone going to swear off buying the system forever because it doesn't have some spectacular line-up right now? I'm pretty sure any logical gamer is open to buying a system that offers games they want, regardless of when they release. I know the whole doom and gloom thing is fun for some people, but 3DS had sluggish sales starting out and that's doing just fine now.
+1. LOL at people who have spent so much time on the internet that they now have ADD.
2 months since it launched here in the U.S. The games will come. I downloaded disgaea 3. May 1st Mortal Kombat, May 29th Resistance, Then June will be the exclusive Gravity Rush. I'm sure a surprise or two in between. I really like my Vita. Patients.
Yeah I was about to go and look up the date of it's launch I was positive it wasn't that far back. Things are going to take some time ._. and people definitely need patients.
Only if they intend to practice medicine. Otherwise they can just wait like everybody else.
it needs EXCLUSIVE software
Almost all of of the current games are exclusive.
if by exclusive you mean port I agree
@crap turtle I think he means, escape plan, gravity rush, golden abyss, burning skies, soul sacrafice, sound shape,lumines eletrocnic symphony,shinobido 2 ect. Because if thats the case we could say the same for titles like star fox, zelda ocarina of time, street fighter 4, metal gear solid 3D ect. But on topic, I believe this is like the second or third article pointing this out. Its like,rinse and repeat. Seriously though the vita has free apps and new games coming, I mean soul sacrafice was unconvered not too long ago and this after this: http://vita.ign.com/article... posted not too long ago from that. So I think people need to relax, I mean the 3DS was in the same perdicument this time last year. Besides there are plenty of cheap games on the store, aming those are over 275 psp games with added dual analog support.
The Vita is in much better shape than the 3DS was 3 months into its life. Maybe not sales wise but quality product wise.

Is anyone else sick to ****ing death of these articles? I don't know if its console war stupidity or what. And, Christ, if you want to talk about a console floundering and dying, it's not the Japanese companies you should be lookin' at.
@Jabberwocky237 @Canary Agree with both.
well with demons souls coming and numerous others. Looks ghood
I'll tell you the truth, I only have 3 games for my Vita: UC:Golden Abyss, Wipeout 2048, and Little Deviants. Haven't opened Deviants, played a little Golden Abyss, and play Wipeout 2048 all day everyday on my Vita. No complaints at all.
There was hype for Vita?
Dont forget Mortal Kombat Vita, LBP and MGS collection is coming. Im also anticipating a MW/COD and killzone title for the holidays. And the title im now most excited for and awaiting the may 10th announcement: A Souls Vita game. If this comes out, ill nvr touch my ps3 again!
As a Vita-owner, I don't think it's anything wrong with the software-lineup for Vita, it's only been out 2 months, and I can turn it on and start buying around 40-50 Vita-native titles here in Europe, wich is amazing, and dosn't usually happen on new console-launches even when the platforms have been released years before in other places. And I can also buy a few hundred PSP, PS1 and similar titles, and those look and play better than they did on PSP. I don't get why those who works in the so-called videogame-journalism seems to hate it so much - besides beeing a japaneese product. They certainly don't bother to write game-impression or reviews for the device. It's a fantastic device, wich gives us everything we have dreamed about in a handheld for earlier generations, digital distribution, dual analog sticks, no UMD. There is no longer any need for the handheld-version to be sub-par to play than a console.
