A disappointing Gamescom showing is decreasing confidence in Activision's Vita shooter.
lol vita need saving? are you kiding me? the only thing vita needs is time like a plant needs growing
The VITA has been doomed since day 1. Nothing can save it.
Delusional vita supporters... Yes the vita needs saving. Horrible sales = decreased support from studios= worse sales until a console is abandoned. Do your history children. It's not impossible. It happens.
it's called a positive attitude you bring to much negativity here boy and we dont need daily articles about the same stuff, i sometimes get that thing called déjà vu and its funny
I don't have to research the history on mobile devices, I've lived through every mobile gaming devices release. I also remember rolling my eyes at the hundreds of "Can X game save the PSP," or "How the PSP is sinking the Playstation brand," articles - and what's the PSP at now? 75-77 million? We saw the same garbage articles with the PSP, the PS3, Blu-Ray, 3D, even HD TV's. Whenever new technology comes out you'll always see detractors heralding the new tech's doom. Sometimes they're right, often they're wrong. Look at Vita sales and compare them to the PSP's launch. Pretty similar, eh? And how did that turn out? Perhaps you should "do your history".
hi ledges, razorblades, poison, hi speed driving an texting, russian roulette with automatics, an a noose. can they save game journalism?
Can we be saved from these stupid ass repetitive articles, and the retarded fanboys who say the same thing over and over thinking they know how to run a business? this site gets more boring by the minute i can't tell the last time anymore here could actually have a regular debate without it devolving into fanboy vs fanboy.
The Vita doesn't need saving, but yes this game could help sell more systems
Yes, yes it does.
Don't bother trying to reason with this crows...they're still claiming it's the "Year of the PS3" (claimed for 3-4 years now!) and think that the PSP was superior to the DS. Sad little folks really.
save? it just might kill it. killzone , ac and nfs will save thE vita.
If there's one thing that the Vita doesn't need is terrible games from Nihilistic software. Yeah this call of Duty game will be complete trash. Oh well at least we have Guerilla developing Killzone Mercenaries for the Vita. XperiaRay
I think cod looked even worse because we just saw the Killzone trailer. It looked almost as good as Killzone 3. Anyone notice you got money for kills? I'm guessing that means you can use the money you get from missions on weapons and things to use in the game, and hopefully it should mean more variety in the way we can complete missions. More replay value. Also, I'm glad they didn't just throw us in with some soldiers, this could be more interesting with Mercenaries.
Lol the vita is sailing with other games that have been announced. declassified should not even be mentioned from the piss poor effort that could be seen from the trailer
The shit needs to be scrapped and restarted with a dev that can actually make games.
COMMENT OF THE YEAR.....
It looked so bad I thought it was the DS game.
Yes it will because a week ago this game was getting really hyped, people were bragging "COD multiplayer experience on the go will sell million of vitaz"
Yeah and then reality set in for the fanboys and they realized it wasn't the same game they were used to on console... except for the crappy graphics of course. ; )
I love my vita! No it doesnt need saving...when itmhadnt even been out for a year! Cod looks like shit so far they might as well made that a psp game. Shit bring on FTB4!
I didn't realize Vita needed saving. I'm pretty sure it is cruising along OK for now, without breaking record sales, just like 3DS didn't set the world on fire until Nintendo crapped themselves & immediately dropped the price by a pretty high ammount to help generate sales. I really think Sony need to get Insomniac onto a REALLY GREAT Ratchet, as well as get a few other great developers to bring a AAA+ 3D platformer to the machine. They need to get the games rolling out.
Yeah, no. Firstly, the Vita does not need saving. I don't have it myself but even I know that it needs time to grow, just like the 3DS needed time. Secondly, BO: Declassified's trailer was one of the worst trailers I've ever seen. It simply looked bad. The Vita's killer apps are something else than this.
What can sell units is games like AssCreed Liberation, Tearaway and Killzone Mercenary. BO Declassified needs so much more polish compared to the games I've mentioned.
Have you seen the trailer? That game isn't saving anything.
The "Vita doesn't need saving" crowd is the new "this year is the year of the ps3!" Lol. I own both a vita (not for long) and a ps3....and you people make me laugh.
Why is everyone focusing on COD? Sony showed far more impressive titles. Tearaway looks brilliant and uses the Vita features very well. It's unique games like this that should be hyped. Killzone is a better game that COD and the Vita version looks set to continue this trend. I was far more excited for a Vita Killzone than I was for any COD announcement.
Wait weren't there two other articles yesterday saying "Can AC Liberation save the Vita?" "Can Tearaway save the Vita?" Who approves this crap?
Tired of headlines like "Can It Save Vita?" The PSVITA is the coolest handheld to have been made, people will sooner or later realise this and PSVITA will get the attention it deserves.
Nice article image. Wonder where you got it.
"The top-down action game, Killzone: Liberation, was proof of this. This was a game that is actually better than any Killzone FPS released." Did he really just say this ?!!? This author is on crack if he thinks KZ:L was better than KZ2. (Or KZ3 for that matter). KZ2 is a classic, Liberation was a NES game on the PSP.
Okay, scrap Declassified, and kick the developer off of the project. Next, hire one of the great studios that Sony owns, (Maybe the guys who made MAG?) and just wait 6-12 months to release it because it has been unanimously panned by just about every one who saw the reveal trailer.
First, it needs to save itself. The decent graphics I can live with but 4v4 is easy too small. Second, the Vita doesn't need saving.
