New PS Vita gameplay that Sony didn’t show at E3

By Updated on

If you watched Sony’s E3 keynote conference just a few days ago, many of you are probably wondering what an earth happened to the new PS Vita content that was clearly non-existant on stage.

It turns out that Sony simply didn’t have enough time to show it, as one of their aims this year was to condense their keynote and keep it shorted compared to last year. This is pretty mind boggling to us, since they chose to give a 20 minute demo to the new Wonderbook tech as opposed to giving more time to the PS Vita which the handheld badly needs after a few barren months.

The good news, is that Sony does have some brand new Vita content to show off and it comes in the form of their E3 2012 ‘sizzle’ video, which highlights the vast amount of titles and new applications that are on the way this year and next year. A few crackers to pick out are some gameplay for Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Sound Shapes and even a quick glimpse of the YouTube app that is coming soon as well.

If you are really looking forward to seeing PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, we’ve also added a separate gameplay video taken from the E3 show floor which gives you a great look at how the game handles on Vita. It’s also worth pointing out that the gameplay apparently features one Vita player (obviously), two CPU players and also one user on PS3 – all at the same time.

Were you shocked that Sony didn’t devote more time at E3 to showing off some more Vita gameplay? It was even worse in a way that when they did finally unveil the COD game as Black Ops: Declassified, they didn’t even have any gameplay or a trailer to show off. We’re also wondering what has happened to Bioshock on the Vita as well – is that still coming out?

The video below is a good one though, even if they are just little teases of gameplay. Check it out and let us know where you stand with the Vita at the moment.
