Really looking forward to Motorstorm RC. Loved ReVolt back in the day and this will scratch that itch nicely. That you get both the Vita and PS3 versions for once price is fantastic news and I hope that other games follow the same premise (Dragons Crown, Ruin, etc.)
Quite frankly there are too many games that I'm interested in. I may even wait a month or two on Uncharted and Wipeout just so that I can enjoy the smaller games that are surely going to get overlooked by a lot of people since there is so much out.
Not to mention the likes of Rayman which is going to look stunning on the Vita, the Crash Bandicoot games for the PS1 that I just for free with PSN+ and FF 7-9 that I need to play through as well.
So much content for this system.

Everyone seems to have Golden Abyss as their most wanted vita launch game, judging by the poll on the blog. This baffles me
The simple fact is uncharted singleplayer takes about 12 hours to complete, based on my experience of uncharted 1 & 2 (have not played 3). They haven't shown anything to justify paying full price at launch for it.

Gutted. I was kind of hoping Dynasty Warriors, Shinobido (I want this game badly)and Ridge Racer would be available around launch time. According to Play Asia they are all out in Japan same day as Vita. *cries a bit*
Ah well, it will mean Vita launch is cheaper for me. Only launch title i'm interested in is Uncharted, from that list.
Some of the games listed as 'in development' I haven't heard of before and had to look up. Puddle looks like it will be either a lot of fun or very frustrating. Possibly both! Haha.
