    What Happened Sony?

    When the Vita first launched, Sony promised a bunch of good, original games for it. Now Sony is saying most of the good games in store for the Vita are PlayStation classics and indie games.

    What happened Sony? Why can't you guys develop games for it like Nintendo develops games for the 3DS?

    It doesn't matter at this point. Either folks are going to buy Vita for PS Now, remote play, and third party/indie games or Vita is just going to die. 3DS just has the market cornered. Frankly, I don't get it. Vita is superior in every way, imo. But.....it is what it is. Hopefully the recent trend of Japanese games coming west will continue.

    The 3DS has recognizable games on it that people want to play, that's why it's beating the crap out of the Vita.

    Not to mention pretty much every big game is out there on store shelves for people to pick up and look at. Where as a lot of the great vita games are download only or have very little retail runs/presence.

    Also with the 3DS you don't have to pay EXTRA for a memory card, it's already inside and most 3DS owners probably don't even know it's there

    true, it has the marios, zeldas, etc. I don't get the attraction to those but that's just me.

    Plus if you do want to upgrade the memory, its extremely cheap to do.

    Yeah, I tried to like those games, but finally realized I just don't.

    As well as them now coming out and saying basically to get your AAA vita fix, remote play PS4 games or sign up to PS Now when it's up and running.

    "Console quality gaming on the go" if I'm not mistaken was what they were banding around when launching the Vita. Pffft.

    Yes remote play is great and I'm sure playing oldies with PS Now will be a great feature but for me, portable gaming means not always being connected so when I don't have a internet connection for remote play or ps now, I want decent quality titles to play whether it be during a road trip, on the train or plane etc.

    I get more and more disappointed with/for the Vitas future and after the recent article, don't hold much hope for anything big at E3 for it neither. Hell, they can't even get PS2 HD ports right, looking at the recent release of GoW collection and J&D to name a couple.

    Uncharted abyss was a launch game for Christ sake and still one of the best available with no sequel or something of a similar standard from Sony Bend, a non RC Motorstorm would be ace as well as an infamous or vita specific GoW. Would even like a killzone liberation 2 etc. JRPG's really aren't my thing so for genuine vita games I'm really starting to scrape the barrel for something to play which is a damn shame as it's a fantastic system with some very good games.

    The launch of the slim vita is what I find quite puzzling, if they supported the console with games then the original 1000 would be selling just fine, it's not like the new slim comes with 5 AAA's up it's sleeve, it still has the same games available.

    I just got my VITA for the huge backlog of games I have on PS+ titles. I'm also pre-empting my purchase of the PS4 and remote play as well as PS NOW. Even if they were to stop making games for it now I am happy with the streaming and second screen options built into it.
    Trophy-licious!

    It's not dead, but I don't see it selling like hotcakes either. It's like a REALLY REALLY good accessory for the PS4 that also happens to play dedicated games on its own.

    Awesome device, just neglected a bit.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    I agree except in comparison to the 3DS. I have a 3DS and only own Zelda. I own many Vita games. The 3DS is only a success because it is casual, not because it is a good device or has great games. I feel ripped off truthfully by how cheap and outdated the 3DS is. Sony failed to establish a marketing strategy for the Vita and appeal to a market (not casuals) that would be interested. Also Nintendo only supports the DS while Sony is more focused on their console, which I prefer. Handhelds are only meant to compliment consoles anyway.

    I literally bought my 3DS for Pokemon. I got a preowned copy of Zelda for it too, but didn't even finish it.

    Hopefully it won't stop them making a Gran Turismo to see that there is a market for AAA games on the Vita.

    All they really need to do is announce a Minecraft bundle (hopefully LE design), for $179 and drop the system on its own to $150 then that should boost sales in the West. If not then that's pretty much it without GTA and whatnot.

    I think the main problem with Vita is that western audience and developers didn't support/get Sony's message. From the beggining it was core oriented, but for typical core gamer everything that not on the BIG scpeen and not blow you away in terms of IQ didnt exist. The second problem is 3ds in Japan, developesr choose it because it ease to develop for and the cost of the development is not so hight and established Nintendo franchises is a HUGE selling point

    There's still quite a lot of third party exclusive support for the system, same with how the PSP got a ton of exclusives despite DS domination. Anyway I'm just glad SCEJ at least is still making games for it like Freedom Wars and Gravity Rush 2 which hopefully do well enough for more 1st party games. They need a new LocoRoco and Patapon for it as well, those would look amazing on it.

    There's nothing major lined up for the Vita that I know of. I don't own a vita, would like to get one, but there isn't a compelling enough reason to get on board.

    No kidding. hell.....my Vita's memory card is full of games that I keep trying to get to but more games keep coming out. Play some games likes Gravity Rush, Tearaway, and Danganronpa and the word "major" takes on a whole new meaning.

    I'm guessing by that term he means a heavy hitter like GTA, infamous, Bioshock, Motorstorm (non RC), a new Uncharted, AC, COD etc. To be fair, I'm in a similar situation. I've had the Vita since launch and there has been some top games like KZ, Tearaway, Uncharted, Rayman, LBP to name afew but there is only so much Limbo, Thomas was alone, Knytt underground etc I can take and I don't see any big guns announced for the foreseeable future.
