Multiplayer on Vita
From what I've seen, none of these games have multiplayer. Will any of the Vita games support real multiplayer. I'm not talkin' time-attacks and score beating like this is Tetris. I say that because I saw that the Unit 13 game doesn't even support multiplayer. Just was curious on what's the deal with that. Couldn't understand why anyone would buy the 3G version if you can't even use it to the fullest. In my opinion at least.
You can't play online using 3G. Online play is wireless only. As for the question you're asking, I don't really know...
None of what games? If you mean launch games, quite a few of them support competitive multiplayer
There are a few bummers like Modnation that don't, which sucks. Unit 13 supports co-op multiplayer
Yeah 3G does not allow you to play online. I'm assuming it's because the connection, from my experience, is far too spikey to provide any sort of gratifying experience 'on the move'. It's mostly for the social apps/web browsing/near.. party chat(?)
Multiplayer over 3G speeds would suck ass. It would take a 4G connection to prevent lag and with a 20mb limit you will not be playing online anyways. 3G is used for those who want to use their GPS, access the PS Store, emails, Near, ect.
Well, like I reported a couple years ago here... 3g can work fine with some games. It also doesn't use that much bandwidth at all. I round of COD BLOPS would only use around 15MB of data.
I actually played WoW over 3G a few times. It wasn't bad at all. To compare, the latency was similar to the feeling of playing PSone classics over PSP remote play. It was decent - but then again, my phone that was tethered sat in one place the whole time.
From my experience, 3G fluctuates wildly - sometimes it runs like a dream (for web browsing) other times it's slow as fuck. It would suck for gaming on the go imo
Too much talk bout 3G... The real question was, why are all the announced titles for the PSvita barely have any MP functions.
LBP2 is pretty much the only one I've seen with MP and that's only with 3 other players. It also seems like the Resistance title won't even support online, or at least nothing has been announced about MP. I'd only be buying Resistance if it comes with good MP support. SP is all fine and dandy for playing games when there's no wifi about, but in todays world wifi is nearly everywhere and I want games with a great load of MP.
CoD may just be the first to support "true" MP, if it doesn't then well its going to fail hard while making the PSVita look unattractive to all them CoD players out there
Virtua Tennis 4
MLB the show
All have competitive multiplayer as far as I know. I think Hustle kings and Top darts may also have too
Hopefully resistance has a competitive MP as well, would keep that itch satisfied until CoD or Killzone release
Edit: Unit 13 supports co-op online MP, which seems pretty cool for a game like that
Research, research, research.... it helps. Good post Nitey.
I was under the impression that games on the VITA won't support 3G for online play. The possibility of online over 3G wasn't really the question by the OP.
It was regarding the PS VITA + 3G, and as far as I am aware, games won't support 3G for online play.
Playing online from the 3g Vita, no. Playing online tethered to a 3g connection, yes.
As far as the OP goes, the 3g is being used, whatever "the fullest" means though... dunno.
Disregarding the fact that you can't game over 3G, I've been playing a LOT of WipEout 2048 Multiplayer and it works better than in WipEout HD on PS3. Totally awesome.

Which is weird there hasn't been any info on any such games as that's the type of game that has the biggest market for online play. Surely CoD will have online, as like I said before the game won't sell as much without it. Even though I haven't been a fan of it since MW1 apart from zombies I'll probably have to pick it up.

I agree, due to the sheer popularity, I am amazed a decent fully competitive online military MP game wasn't available at launch.....they would fly off the shelves......as well as shift more vitas too

I understand. If by 'true' multiplayer the OP meant a shooter with 5v5 or something then yeah there is nothing like that available. But the truth is there is a lot of games that support fleshed out online modes, as well as some that are semi online. Asynchronous? Time attacks or whatever

I think at this point, in terms of what CoD is known for and loved for, a full CoD experience is almost guaranteed this fall
