This may come as a shock to some, but PS Vita does have games coming out for it later this year. Many have slated Sony and the device for it’s lack of games, but with around 40 titles already on the system and at least 20+ more to come before the end of the year, I think that the Vita is unfairly criticised.
I’m pretty sure most of the criticism the device is receiving is probably down to Sony rather than the Vita itself. Sony certainly didn’t do itself any favours with its poor E3 showing, instead opting to concentrate on Wonderbook, rather than the handheld.
Sony, it seems, immediately regretted that decision, with Worldwide Studios chief Shuhei Yoshida saying after the show that the company “could have spent more time – probably should have” showing off the games coming out this year. On the bright side, the hardware giant does have the opportunity to make up for this with its gamescom press conference next month – and you can bet it won’t make the same mistake again.
Unannounced titles at gamescom could include the widely rumoured Medal of Honor and possibly even some form of Monster Hunter title, while those of a more hopeful nature will be desperate for a new game from the legends that are RockStar Games.
Personally I’d love to see a western style RPG on the system and a date for the long awaited PSOne support, although it remains to be seen what Sony has up its sleeves.
Then there is the promise of a more Vita centred Tokyo Game Show from Sony and of course, the Japanese event -PlayStation Heaven, which we are told will take place soon. This is likely to include Japanese-centric titles, though that doesn’t mean we won’t see them over here (Soul Sacrifice was revealed during the last event).
So yeah, things are looking good for PS Vita at the moment, although if Sony fails to deliver at gamescom then, once again, we’ll have to put up with the “Vita is doomed” merchants.
While we wait for gamescom to arrive, I’ve compiled a list of the PS Vita games we can expect to see before the end of 2012, I’ve probably missed a few, but if I have simply post them below and i’ll add them in for you.
Anyway, I think it’s a pretty good list and I’m excited to see what else Sony comes up with for the system for this year and beyond.
The Vita is a fantastic machine and I for one am glad it exists.
