Best PS Vita games to revive system

Are you still playing your PS Vita regularly, or is it now starting to gather dust after you grew tired of waiting for some new games to release? If it’s the latter, you probably have one game in mind that is going to make you start playing again.

After picking up our PS Vita in December when it first launched, we’re disappointed to say the least on how it has panned out after such an impressive launch lineup. Sony really nailed it with the terms of selection and quantity of games that they had on offer, but since then we’ve had a few notable releases and nothing else.

E3 was a huge disappointment given the fact that we didn’t see much Vita action, but at least Sony admitted this and said that they agreed it was a area that could have been improved. The good news is that GamesCom 2012 and the Tokyo Game Show in September are on the horizon and we should get a fresh look at the latest software titles that will be landing on the new handheld in the near future.

It’s fair to say that Black Ops: Declassified is the one game that is going to make everyone start playing their Vita again. If we were to pick out one obscure title, we’d also predict that DJ Max Technika Tune is going to be a hidden gem as well. Not many people know about the popular Korean rhythm franchise, but if you’ve played previous titles on the PSP, you’ll know that the replayability of these type of games are plain value for money.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation should be another game to look out for, while the likes of Final Fantasy X HD and Phantasy Star Online 2 are definite hardware sellers. At the moment though, the PS Vita has been ignored and console games are taking preference.

Are you in the same situation with your Vita? Let us know your thoughts on the lack of new games and what title is going to make you start playing the system again.

I’m in the exact same state with my Vita. I’ve bought all the vita games i could get, and there is still nothing i play, only a few minutes of playing and then away again. We really need some AAA titles to show us why we should buy this console for a lot of money. It should be entertaining, but it’s not.

I’m so sick of people whining about the lack of new Vita games. It’s the summertime FFS. You know, the game release drought. Would they be happy if Sony held back a few games from the launch lineup and released them throughout the year instead? We don’t need a new high profile Vita exclusive released every week. It would be nice, but it’s too much to ask. Don’t these people have other systems to play inbetween Vita releases or do they just NEED new content to play on their Vita all day everyday? Maybe if all you have to game… Read more »

I imported a Vita a month before it released. Sadly, for that month, it was an expensive paper weight. Since then, I’ve picked up Uncharted, MGS, and Gravity Rush. Good games, but what I want to see come to the Vita include CoD, a Fallout game, an original FF, an original RE, and Dead Space (be they ports of 1, 2, or the iOS/Android version or all new). Titles like these, and like now, would really boost the system. From a technical standpoint, it’s an impressive piece of hardware. From a software stand point, I’ll take a 3DS any day.
