TVGB: Forget memory cards, forget smartphones and 3DSs, forget battery life. All that matters is Call of Duty.
Omg please tell me what does the Vita need saving from??It hasn't even been out for more than a month and it's only been released in one continent jeezus can we stop with the damn doom articles??
The PSP got off to a similarly slow start in Japan, and now it has sold more than 70 million units worldwide. Hell it was the best selling console in Japan in 2010 (outselling the Wii,DS & PS3) 6 years after it's original launch. People should just give it time, and at least wait for the Western release before writing these doom & gloom articles! Even yesterday the Japanese magazine Nikkei Trendy reported that an exclusive PS Vita Monster Hunter sequel was been developed for a release in late 2012. That alone would secure the handhelds place in the market. I remember when these same idiots said that the PS3 was dead in the water back in 2007... fast forward 4 years, the Uncharted series & 60 million consoles later.
A COD game for Vita will be its "killer-app".
Yea there's no denying that cod would move some sales but he acts like it needs really bad cuz (supposively)it's failing when it's only been out in one continent and for less than a month .*Facepalm* to the writer of this.
i dont think so, im a big cod fan and i play regularly but i cant see myself playing on a small screen its gonna be uncomfortable to see everything clearly
@prince Your eyes adjust to the screen eventually. I have all the PSP versions atm and the screens are really clear as ever and games play fine. Only problem though I could see though are the joysticks, some won't be used to the fact that the joysticks don't come out a bit(maybe they do for the PSV? not sure) but at least there is 2 this time so CoD would work perfectly
I would love to play fallout on my vita
An exclusive COD would be great, but I would prefer that it shared online MP with the PS3 version of what ever COD releases around the same time. being able to play online COD while on the go could be great!
IT DOESN'T NEED SAVING!!!!! oh dear LORD
Vita is also getting a Bioshock exclusive. But remember, the PSP was originally going to get an Elder Scrolls game. And 3DS a Saints Row title. Sony has to make sure that these games are fully secured. They need to support the developers and make sure these big games stay on track.
Not even released in 1 continent just 1 country Japan.
I don't think my tiny little mind can take any more, not only is my most anticipated hardware of 2012 being touted as DOA but it could be saved by non other than Call of Duty, kill me now!
These doom articles are getting dumber by the minute.
I heard it's a hip new fad these days.
It was an interesting article. Far better written than some of the other doom articles I've seen. But I don't feel that the Vita needs saving. Call of Duty will no doubt push Vita sales, as will new installments of other top franchises. It's far far too early to say the Vita is doomed. Solid games are great for any console or portable device. The Vita has a few solid titles already, and many more in the near future.
How does this crap keep getting approved? oh yea fanboys. The Vita doesn't need saving, i need to start saving so i can buy one and all the great launch titles i want.

For better or worse, I don't have to like the article, nor agree with it to approve it. It was well written. I don't agree with the author. I've seen a few that I haven't approved because they were poorly written or hostile. Maybe that's the wrong way to go about it. If so, my apologies.
Good one, haha. I'll be getting my finances in order to make sure I have enough for a Vita + games day one. This thing will be a monster with a huge library. Then all Sony will have to do is advertise it.
Yeah its Japanese sales will go up by 9 units with an exclusive Call of Duty!
Save it? It doesnt need saving,its just a slow start, wait till it hits the rest of the world next month
Don't like the doom attitude he has about the Vita , also don't like that he would suggest an activision game to save it when sony has 17 in house delvelopers who are capable of creating a game that can easily put vita on the map so to speak..
No kidding. The only reason why PSV is doing poorly in Japan right now are because of the software out right now. 3DS is cheaper atm and Nintendo scored an exclusive deal for monster hunter combine with the 3DS lower price well it's no wonder. When SquareEnix and those guys start putting some exclusive jrpgs on the psv then we'll see some movement for Japan Remakes don't count
But yeah just another no name journalist site looking for hits as per usual.
who keeps approving this?

Thank you *grabs deagle and car keys*
The same thing that would save the Vita would also kill it. Get ready for a handheld full of FPS games thanks to Sony advertising the second analog stick as being perfect for FPS games (shown during PSHome's E3 booth).
what you just said made no sense at all I mean look at the PS3 and then tell me that it's a FPS games restricted kind of console...no it's not! what Sony is trying to say is that they welcome the FPS genre onto their new handheld which was lacking so much on the early PSP because of the only 1 analog stick.
Look at all these articles and headlines about the amazing Playstation Vita trying to manipulate peoples opinions. Vita will be HUGE if Sony's marketing and game lineup are strong enough. I will be picking mine up day one. As what I consider a hardcore gamer I really see no reason not to.
While i do believe that Call of Duty will boost vita sales considerably. I believe that even if the Vita doesnt get Call of Duty it will do just fine.
I kind of doubt it. Who would play a COD on a handheld over a console version? I think people are forgetting what these handheld's are supposed to be about. Playing something here or there while on the run, quick little fun games that you can pick up and put down and then pick up again.....
Then go stick with your phone apps me? I prefer having a real gaming experience no matter where I am,that's what the 3DS & PSVita provide to the market,don't like it ? then don't buy it!
Who are you to decide what others want from a handheld? I want games to play for 5 min AND Uncharteds,LBPs etc.
U guys act like the 3ds is only selling well because of MH... A game that's only out in Japan right now! so how do u explain the 3ds selling so well in the rest of the world then?
Xmas Period with Super Mario 3D Land & Mario Kart 7 would explain the rest of the world sales.
Great, the frag heads want to take over the portable market too. At this rate the Japanese will just stop sending their games over altogether and do you know the sad thing about all of these new age "Xbox was my first console" "gamers" They were never really part of gaming culture, they can barely even be called gamers...and they are influencing decisions the world over because of their numbers. Devs take a look at those sales figures and have a knee-jerk reaction it seems. Whether it be the "let's make our games more like this" or the "Well, that's all these people are into now, we can no longer sell our games there." It's nobody's inherent "fault" but it's a very destructive trend to what makes gaming...well, gaming. Call of duty and the appeal of similar games are the black death of gaming, essentially.
The Vita will need saving when it's putting up numbers like the PS2 each week. Worldwide. Until then- and especially for it having just launched in ONE COUNTRY and having it go up against some pretty steep competition- it's doing just fine.
I HATE cod/mw ... BUT ... if this is the 1st fps w/ mp on the vita, I WILL buy it. As much as activision milks the hell out of this title, im surprised they haven't released more info on it yet. I would've thought it would've been a US launch title, bc we all know how much Activision loves making money
