PS Vita games missing in 2014 lineup

The current PS Vita games collection leaves a lot to be desired in our opinion and while you’ll find a number of great games coming soon in 2014, it seems that the list is missing out on some vital titles or good games in certain genres.

Every gamer will have their own wish list and you can count on mixed opinions, but seeing the lack of a Call of Duty PS Vita game in 2013 and a lack of news in 2014 surrounding other great franchises like Lord of the Rings gives us cause for concern. The Shadow of Mordor looks impressive, and my love for LOTR and strategy could have been met on PlayStation Vita with a title a lot of people would purchase for when on-the-move.

What PS Vita games do you feel are missing in the 2014 lineup, and is there any types of games missing from the handheld in your opinion?

Coming up to two years ago we touched on the best PS Vita games that could revive Sony’s portable games system, and below that article we heard from Product Reviews readers about the lack of games. Some people feel “there’s nothing to play even after purchasing most games”, and these gamers also want to see a lot more AAA titles.

Personally, it’s the specific games that we feel the PS Vita needs on the coming soon list for 2014/2015. Of course, you don’t need to look far to see opinions about the state of demand for mobile handhelds. “the hardware and games on iPhone and Android phones is so good that the need for a dedicated games handheld seems to be dropping, not to mention the amount of money being made with apps”, said one Product Reviews reader.

Do you feel that the PS Vita has increased or dropped in popularity? Do you still see a need for handheld games systems, considering the power of phones and accessories they attract?

We hope to see better PS Vita strategy games over the next year and COD 2014 receiving a PS Vita release. Leave a comment below with your PS Vita games wish list, and your feelings about its place in the marketplace.

You can see a list of PS Vita games coming soon in 2014 right here, so feel free to take a look if you need a refresher of upcoming titles we know about so far.

PS vita needs games like Gta, there was a NFS port for it so its definitely capable of open world games like that. If this by any means happens, i would buy 5 copies lol.

Coming from a dev standpoint, the vita is the holy grail of gaming. Indie games are flocking to vita some are even exclusive and sony has made it easier than ever to publish games for the platform. AAA titles will always be garbage in my eyes and the eyes of every other indie dev out there, they will never reach a personal level because so many different peoples visions are thrown into them like a crude melting pot. A game made by 1-2 can give you an experience that can be lifechanging or insightful, like the masterpiece that is Lone… Read more »

Honestly the vita has all I want. I say this because I have to many games to play and not enough time to play them. Call me a fanboy but there are a variety of titles. Killzone mercenary is sufficient for my FPS fix. I would like another but not COD have their awful and careless first entry id rather another company build an exclusive Vita FPS (lore exclusive as well). My breakdown: Killzone – FPS Soul Sacrifice – the 15 min fix game that can be played for hours at a time Danganrompa – my Japanese anime fix. This… Read more »

Vita needs less Indies that are cheaper on Steam and phones and needs more Western AAAs. A new Assassins Creed. A western RPG like Fallout or Mass Effect. More quality shooters like Killzone Mercenary. Open worlds like GTA or Watch Dogs

Nintendo Monster Hunter exclusivity really hurt the Vita. I have no doubt that game would have sold a ton of PS Vita units. PS Vita marketing in the states has been basically non-existant. The kiosks should have had tons of better demo’s. Wipeout 2048, Toukiden, Dragons Crown, Little Big Planet, Killzone Mercenary, Tearaway, Gravity Rush, Soul Sacrifice, Uncharted, Rayman Origins/Legends, Mortal Kombat, Sound Shapes, Guacamelee, Limbo, Big Sky Infinity and Muramasa Rebirth on demo would have done WONDERS. If they have a marketing push for it now with that demo setup with a small t.v. that is showing the action… Read more »

Seems to be picking up in Japan, but I don’t see it going anywhere in the western hemisphere anytime soon.

Playing on a tablet even with a Bluetooth controller simply isn’t the same. Not to mention the quality of titles on the Vita blows away the piles of garbage you have to dig through on the Play Store before finding something worth while. I have a Nexus 7 with a Bluetooth controller and it gets used mostly for emulators and a few games that I do enjoy on occasion. I do however use the Nexus over the Vita every time for apps… My vita is strictly for gaming. I guess a lot of my love of the Vita has to… Read more »

A new Battle for Middle Earth or Age of Empires on PS Vita, this would make me spend hours on my Vita.
