Lmao 🤣

Golden Abyss was such a great game, excellent use of the Vita and using the gyros to fine tune your aim down scopes was genius. So much fun.

Agreed.. My Vita went missing some time ago, I just couldn't see how they could move Uncharted to the small screen, but they did a great job. They were in a bit of trouble as Nathan had to take a side -job

doing adverts, to earn a few bob extra. Rumour has it that for the ad he had to do his own stunts as there was no budget for a stuntman.

This game needs a console release

mikey1522d ago

But could it be done? Its a while now but I seem to recall puzzles which used the touch screen very well, which might be a chore with the controller.. Also the "sniper mode" where you held the vita up and turned it to survey the terrain. Prob why it isn't on PS Now, whilst all the others are[??] Maybe VR/ move controllers are the answer??

Magog22d ago

Dualsense has a touchpad. Sniper mode could probably be tied to the gyro on the Dualsense as well.

Agreed, but with the touch, you had screen + finger touch/move.. However with the touchpad youd be using the pad, whilst looking at the screen.. Gyro would be fine but so would head-tracking, with move if you can see it, you can hit it with 2x hands at once...

even the PS 2/Eyetoy camera didn't miss a "beat"

I'd like to see the game anywhere TBH.

Tearaway was released on console and that made use of the touch screen and the touchpad on the back of the Vita.

gamesftw25022d ago

Could be easily converted to gyro/touchpad use honestly.

The sun puzzle was great to scratch away the puzzle

Not the part where the finger ripped through the scenery. Or am I misremembering? Like I said my vita went missing a while back when we were doing some heavy internal work/decoration.

This is the type of thing I mean, you could do it or anything like it, but it was more "natural" with a touch screen, as its what you would do in r/l. Give a driver a controller and GT, he won't have a clue.. Give him VR a driving wheel/pedals and I know for a fact he and his wife, wouldn't get off the thing. ;)

I remember buying this and the Vita day one in 2012. That was almost ten years ago, damn.

Sony Bend aren't making mobile games, you are confusing them with Sony Music and Unties

Unties has announced four games so far.***

You're confusing Playstation with Sony.

You cannot cancel what you never intended to release.. From my above link

https://segmentnext.com/son...

***Sony Bend embracing multiplayer should not come as a surprise. While the acclaimed Days Gone was perfect to feature some sort of multiplayer support, it was highly reported that a Days Gone 2 would have had a cooperative mode.

The sequel however was shut down by Sony Interactive Entertainment because of how the first game had a lengthy development cycle and the mixed reception at release. Days Gone 2 was marked to not be a “viable option” for PlayStation 5, forcing Sony Bend to move on to something new.

Whatever Sony Bend has been working on for the past year will be built upon the same open-world technology and features which were originally developed for Days Gone. This was confirmed by head of PlayStation Studios Herman Hulst earlier in the month. The unannounced game will hence have the deep open-world of Days Gone and seemingly a multiplayer or cooperative mode of the scrapped Days Gone 2 pitch.***

They haven’t cancelled anything here…
