Whoever said hand-held gaming consoles are out for the count? With all these games that are now starting to line up for the PS Vita, the doubts that this gaming device would suffer the same fate of its predecessor – Nintendo 3DS, seems to be getting more and more unlikely. After Sony took an initial beating from a few publishers stating the uncertainly of the future of hand held gaming, they might start looking at PS Vita’s official line-up of games and the possible releases for the highly doubted hand-held gaming console.
Call of Duty
Activision has already joined the list of official PS Vita games a few weeks ago after announcing the integration of its latest FPS game installment – Modern Warfare 3 with the PS Vita. Though, official statements have not yet been announced to the particular title for the Call of Duty PS Vita Title. However, rumors have been flying around this week that the announcement for the Call of Duty PS Vita title will be made during the COD XP LA 2011. When a Call of Duty game is released one the PS Vita, which it surely will, that alone could be the basis for Vita’s success.
Tekken X Street Fighter
In order for a gaming console to be successful, it needs to cater to every type of gamer. PS Vita has FPS gamers covered with Call of Duty, and in regards to fighting games, Katusuhiro Harada, The game director and creator of the Tekken Series has expressed his heightened interest for releasing the latest installment Tekken X Street Fighter ,which crosses over the rosters of the two most famed fighting games in the history of gaming, for the Vita. If that wouldn’t be enough for Fighting game fans to feast their fingers on, then nothing else will.
Though an official announcement or any details of this franchise being parted to PS Vita have not yet been released. You would figure that since Sony is publishing Gran Turismo, then it would only be a matter of time until that announcement will be made. Sony has sent out a challenge to video game publishers to max-out Vita’s abilities, and what better game to prove its capabilities than their very own Gran Turismo. Arguably, the best looking and most beautiful game out in the market, the mere gameplay and physics screams “PS VITA!.” Driving a Ferrari on dual analogs would be as smooth as ever, and most obviously, PS Vita’s rear touchpad could offer various uses for racing game tasks – gear changing, maybe. Definitely, this is one PS Vita game that is worth anticipating.
