With the PS Vita well and truly in the hands of a lot of gamers right now, it’s clear that the system has enormous potential as owners patiently wait for the first truly AAA title to arrive on the system.
Uncharted Golden Abyss was good, but it wasn’t great in many eyes. Call of Duty may end up being great, but we are yet to see any details from Activision regarding the game, especially on whether the Vita game will be a new title in the franchise, or if it will just end up being a port of an existing game.
Then there is the whispers regarding a potential Grand Theft Auto title for the Vita, which everyone would agree would be a fantastic addition to the Vita lineup at the moment. One other major franchise that has been rumored for the system is God of War, and it’s a little strange that we haven’t heard any official details regarding a Vita version for one of Sony’s best selling franchises.
It seems completely logical for Sony to follow up on their excellent God of War PSP games by bringing a new title to the Vita with touchscreen controls. We wouldn’t just like to see a God of War III port though, but rather a completely new spin off exclusive to the Vita, much like the well received Ghost of Sparta game which ended up winning numerous awards.
With this in mind, you’ll be pleased to hear that Shannon Studstill, Senior Director of Product Development at Sony Santa Monica has told IGN that the possibility of God of War coming to the Vita is ‘on the table’ at the moment. Perhaps more interesting though, is that Studstill also hinted that God of War may also come to Apple’s iOS platform in the future as well, which would certainly cause a lively debate amongst fans.
Would you like to see God of War on the Vita? It seems a no-brainer to us, having already had two titles released on the PSP. Let’s see what happens.
