Should have shown some of those during your press conference instead of a 20 second clip, then.
Yeah, I think their actions speak far louder than their words
I couldn't agree more, PS Vita is on life support at this point. Look at Nintendo's conference and 3DS had plenty of screen time. Sony didn't bother and they had plenty of time to do it too.
* 80/100 will be indie games...of which 10 will be good. * of the 20 other "games", 15 of the 20 will be some weird game only 4% of the install base will buy, and the other 5 will be actual good games. I don't want it to be like this, It's just a pattern I'm noticing with the Vita. I don't want more "Neptunia" 13 year old girls in skirts games with demons. I want REAL RPGS.
Which you kinda do and will have enough, it's not rpgs vita lacking. If you don't mean big western rpgs, but even psp didn't have those.
No I mean Good old school classic PS1/SNES/PS2 era RPGS.
@3-4-5 Those games are from that era and don't exist anymore on any console. That's why they are called that, I don't quite get your point.
I think the least they can do is even slightly support the companies that are still bringing games out like Atlus, NIS, etc. They instead are completely disassociating themselves from it.
You might say most of those are indie games, and you are right.
I'm more concerned for the success of the Vita; success means more, better, higher budget games. These indies are not helping much with its success, being multi-platform and obscure.
Of course Vita has a lot to offer. It's where Sony will get PS4's fall lineup from; Tearaway Unfolded, Gravity Rush Remastered, etc.
Well, E3 has come and gone Sony. Make this count.
If "it isn't over" then you would have announced some new games and given the Vita more than 10 seconds in your E3 conference.
show us the games sony,some teasers atleast
Ps2 Classics would be a start ;)
That would be all I need.
Seriously! That would be killer. If they want to force us to go the route of PS Now, they need to give PS Plus members a free monthly rental or something.
Standalone mobile device gaming is dead everywhere except for Japan. Now, people play mobile games on their smart phones with iOS, Android, and even Windows Phone is outselling PS Vita. Only the most die hard of Sony and Nintendo fans buy these devices now.
Say that to the 3DS, it's kicking the Vita's ass badly. It's a delusion to say that mobile gaming is killing handheld console gaming. It's just what Sony is doing with the Vita that is keeping from selling.
Yeah, where is gta3, vice city, San Andreas on the 3DS? Hmmm, I tell you where those 3 games are on iOS and Android, but not on the 3DS or the PSVita. Both dedicated handhelds for gaming, but yet Smartphones are getting the lions share of big 3rd party publishers making games for smartphones and tablets.. But go right ahead and keep thinking dedicated game handhelds are in no danger of being absorbed into the smartphone market. Remember the PDA? Absorbed into the smartphone market. What happens if Nintendo makes a smartphone/3ds hybrid system next, if you do not think that's a viable outcome, than you may not be ready if that does indeed happen. Will it for sure happen, well I cannot say that for sure, but I would not place bets against it..its not smartphones and tablets market that's shrinking, its the dedicated handheld market that is.
LOL. Windows Phone is selling about 9 million a quarter. iPhone sells about 30-75 million a quarter. Android sold over 200 million a quarter. Smart Phones are KILLING mobile gaming devices. There is no competition. Android sells more in a day than Sony and Nintendo do in a quarter. If you are a dev do you target the 250 million quarterly sales of smart phones or the few million sales of gaming handhelds.
"one hundred games", and 90 of those games will be indies and the rest will be ports and localized titles.
90 cross-buy indies that are out on PC and XB1.. so excited
How many Vita games are on XB1?
So the more what 30 locakized games are smoke.good hyperbole man.
Viva la Vita !!!!
How about the Jak Trilogy on vita?
That exist,but run how ass and play worse.typical sony psvita port.
Isn't that already on the Vita? It was a bad port.
I hope a majority of those are localizations. Seriously, i'm tired of the tidal wave of indie games, don't get me wrong, i do enjoy some of them but i need me some more localizations. Hoping for Digimon Cyber Sleuth and God Eater 2: Rage Burst.
Well, those two will surely be localized but tainted with ps4-ports that follow along and so people will say that it doesn't count.
LoL, its very ironic, that since remote play allows the PS4 living room console games to be playable on the PSVita IE: still a playstation Exclusive playing on a playstation system. Why would you really than need to again make another exclusive for the PSVita 1st party that would cost a AAA budget in order for the system sales to still be low. And again gamers calling it a "Watered down living room console port" Its funny that aside from not investing into AAA big 1st party budgets for the PSVita it still gets 2nd tier and great digital releases for the system. Some may say but..but it needs to stand on its own as a platform..Oh' you mean like Microsoft is having the Xbox one and windows OS 10 be a 1 unified eco system and now use streaming for the Xbox one from PC or vice versa... It's pretty amusing to watch all of this play out in the media. Despite the folded, spindle, and mutilated quote corpse of the "dead" PSVita as a platform, its still getting very healthy support for the system out of Japan.. Many again would say, yeah no thanks to Sony.. Well there would be no PSVita for the gamers and media to freaking complain about without Sony. And to be very blunt About it, with the way the consumer in the west has reacted about the PSVita I doubt Sony will be in a real hurry to make a playstation Vita replacement Soon if ever they do. Again 1st. Party AAA investment is most likely never being spent for the PSVita by Sony, because in all intents an purpose, the PS4's exclusives that can be remote played on the ps4 is already a console exclusive for the playstation Vita. Yes there is ways to remote play PC games to say the Nvidia shield, but yet has the shield sold through as many units world wide as the PSVita ? Let alone the 3DS, but yet the Media has been along with many consumers in the west has made news article's after news article's over and over again applying pressure on Sony for the failure of the PSVita, but none are applying that same gusto and media pressure's toward other dedicated handheld systems other than Sony's and was Nintendo when they 1st released the 3DS. But Nvidia is getting no wide account ability by the gamers and news media of the west about its performance in the Market. Funny how that goes. Just Another of the same long line of "Legacy" PSVita is dead, or Sony does not care about the PSVita why are they treating the consumer that way media hit parade of the same thing we have heard for over 3 years running now. But please continue bowling for hits.
Can I remote play ps4 games without wifi? So I can practically go anywhere and play those games, as this is actually the purpose of a mobile console. What if I don't have a PS4? And I thought windows 10 would be some kind of a new OS, but good to know that it's just for streaming Xbox one games... Nobody needs that then.
Yes, yes you can. PS Vita can direct connect to your PS4. So if you're really THAT worried about playing PS4 games on your Vita without WiFi you'd still have the option to hook up your PS4 in your car or whatever have you I guess. You don't need a TV to use the PS4 during Remote Play so no TV needed in the car. Though if you were prioritizing playing PS4 games on your Vita in a car or such you'd odds are either look for a hotspot suitable for the use or have WiFi built into your car if you're that desperate to do so.
They better have some games coming for this device!
Is funny what psvita is getting more games not indies this year what wii u and 3ds,even have more reatail releases what both nintendo machines,but clearly only peoples what have the system and care about his games understand this.
Yes all those incomming Japanese games are the megatons weve been waiting for.
100 games, just not from their studios.
Again @ Sniperwithacause Does it really matter to really need AAA exclusives that Sony could really not count on getting the money back, if the PS4 exclusives can be streamed to the PSVita anyway? Again many may say I did not purchase the system for streaming, I want the PSVita to have its own exclusives made for it. And again Sony tried that, the media perception and the gamer perception in the mainly "west" centric media and gamers are up in arms about this but again it was mainly the media and the gamers in the west That complained about the games that were released were "watered down ps3 ports" Or in would just rather play that on a ps3 or ps4 Many gamers even asked..hey Sony port that PSVita game to the ps4 And now the complaints are hey Sony where is my PSVita AAA exclusives. Its bad enough like in pointed out before, the PSVita platform problem is not software, its not even about its price point at this point, its about the perception of the product itself, the media in the west and the majority of gamers has called it a failure and a flop. They manifested destination the system to be a failure before it really had a chance to take off. The same as the WiiU. Its a stark contrast that Sony is in Nintendo's position with the PSVita as is Nintendo is with the WiiU, and Nintendo is in Sony's position with the 3DS as is with Sony is with the PS4 only Nintendo instead having a strong platform in mobile gaming vs the living room console space. Again outside of the market mainly in the west the PSVita in Asia and Japan is doing rather well. Not in the north american market, but that's expected, since the majority in the media and west centric gamers wrote off the PSVita as a viable choice for mobile game systems other than Nintendo one and in blunt truth even developers like rock star games is choosing smartphones and tablets over dedicated game handheld game consoles for smartphones and tablets. Many can choose to ignore the signs if they want, but the same thing that happened to the dedicated PDA is happening to the dedicated handheld.. Absorption! The dedicated PDA was absorbed Into the smartphone. And its looking to be the same with dedicated handhelds.
It doesn't even have to be AAA look at all the non triple A games sony released on psp. They had their big names and the little games. They haven't bothered to making either as of late.
They said this last year. 85 Indies and 15 Japanese games. No is made games_- not complaining so don't kill me
I'm a PSVita fan and even I know that most of those games will be indies, it's sad because the Vita deserves more than this, it has so much potential. Only games on my wanted list are God Eater 2, and World of FF, the rest just don't appeal to me.
I'm personally looking forward to Lost Dimensions, Gravity Rush 2, the new Ys game, Stein's Gate, Banner Saga, Sword Art Online: Lost Song,The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, Darkest Dungeon, Mighty No. 9, Forgotten Memories...and these are the ones i know of that i will buy.
Vita got 100 games coming... and 99 ain't 1!
I guess we suppose to believe this sh#!!! I want a refund, I bought the vita because I thought it would be supported
Good. I'm thinking about buying an original from Japan.
All Indie and JRPG. Don't expect first party titles as Sony has no plans for that.
Far more than 100 games are coming; http://thevitalounge.net/fo...
The backlog never ends.
