Sony showing 18 unannounced PS Vita games at TGS

Publisher's booth will have 31 titles for upcoming portable in total at show; The Last Guardian MIA from 21-game PS3 lineup.

by

Sony has made it official that the PlayStation Vita will be confined to Japan in 2011, with the North American and European rollouts not expected until early 2012. Japan will also be the site of a major update to the PS Vita library, as Andria Sang reports today that Sony confirmed that this month's Tokyo Game Show will play host to the announcement of 18 new titles for the device.

Dynasty Warriors Next will be among 31 PS Vita games shown at TGS 2011.

Sony did not provide a breakdown of who will be publishing the games that it plans to show at its PlayStation Vita Zone booth. However, the publisher did confirm by name 13 other games that will be on hand, revealing a decidedly Japanese bent to the distribution houses. Listed publishers include Arc System Works, Tecmo Koei, Konami, Acquire, Chunsoft, Nippon Ichi, and Namco Bandai.

Beyond the PS Vita's lineup, Sony also confirmed it will be showing off 19 announced and three unannounced PlayStation 3 games. One notable exclusion from this list is Team Ico's The Last Guardian, which also skipped this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. The game had previously been pegged for a fall 2011 release but has since been bumped to an undetermined release window.

The PSP zone will feature five games as well as one unannounced title. Sony confirmed that Sega's just-announced Yakuza Black Panther 2 will be among the games it plans to have at the show.

@PodXCOM I've heard too that they were working on a PS3 version of Diablo 3 but considering that with every day that's passing we get closer to a new generation of consoles...and Blizzard never said anything officially just a rumor...I don't really know what to think of maybe just the fact that this would've been a total win for us... But if it doesn't come out there are lots of Diablo-clones even on PS3...one of those was the launch title Untold Legends...if you like Diablo you should try that game out...although it's almost 6 years old it's still a nice game...

@Darnasian Sorry, geez. It was a fast post. what I mean to say is: not only do I want the best PS3 games on the vita, but some of the best games on the other platforms. Also, I heard Blizzard is working on Diablo 3 for consoles too. Your thoughts?

Darnasian
Darnasian

@PodXCOM Dude are you serious? I mean no offense really but you gotta be stupid to say that First of all you listed multi platform games not PS3 but multi plat...at least you could've listed the PS3 exclusives not multi plat games that no one will ever come back to them and really those games aren't the best, there are lots other better games then those...yeah those are good games even great but not the best And considering they are third party and some of them even have sequels released there are 90% chances no one will ever come back to them to release them on a different platform And really?Starcraft 2? Dude Starcraft 2 is made by Blizzard What does that tell you? Blizzard is the only developer that never made a game for consoles...at least since 1996 So stating that they should bring one of their games to a console is BS because is so funny considering their history and their disinterest for consoles Chances are very low that they will ever come to consoles They have more money than they will ever need So your statement about Starcraft 2 is bad Also even though the Vita has touch screen that doesn't mean a strategy game can be played easier...on the contrary have you played Starcraft 2 on PC to see actually how hard is it to play online It's the fact that you have to pay attention to the whole map and every point and doing this on touchscreen on such a small screen is really hard and frustrating Not to say Blizzard it's the only developer ever to make games only for PC

@Darnasian Why not Starcraft 2? With the touchscreen, you can play RTS games more easily, and if they just cutdown on the graphics, it can run on the Vita. And yeah, I said best PS3 games, but can you blame me for wanting that?

@PodXCOM Lawl You actually said Starcraft 2 XD... Man you're really stupid...no offense... Not gonna explain why but gonna let you do the research XD Starcraft 2....yeah and I want WOW and Fable and Gears of War to be released for PS3...sarcasm obviously XD

Nothing spectacular for the PSVita. Everything that is good is already on the PS3. Only games I would get on that list is Uncharted and Hot Shots Golf Next. I need to see some demos of the new IP's before I can judge them.

Vita games looking rubbish may I say. Can't wait to see more FF13-2 and MGS HD remakes!

It looks like hell has almost frozen over. Since sony seems to be off to a stronger start with their vita to out beat the 3DS. I thought I would never see the day. That a competitor would create a handheld that might actually stomp out a nintendo handheld.

I have great faith in Sony's ability to screw up the introduction of a new platform.

Someone wake me up in 2034, when FF Versus XIII, The Last Guardian and Agent are released. I don't get what's the point of announcing a game if you can't post stuff about it. It's not building hype at all, it just makes me forget about it and turns my hype-o-meter to zero.

Haha. There's so many Vita haters on here it's amusing. I personally can't wait to get myself one, seems to me like they're actually going to get a LOT of decent games.

@Supabul Why did you get voted down? What you said seem reasonable.

Wow awesome! This is CRITICAL for Sony as the 3DS didn't launch with much. Looks like they're really trying hard to get everything right this time. Good luck, Sony. :)

The PSVita list isn't to hot, Uncharted and little kings story are the only one's I'm interested in. I hope the 18 new game are good Can't believe Disgaea 3 is going to be on PSVita, now I know I'm not getting Disgaea 4 on PS3 it will get ported, these games are better suited to handhelds anyway Looking forward to hearing more on Ni no Kuni and Uncharted 3, most of the others I'm interested in are on 360

wow... I'm surprised that they're still bothering to release games for PSP... But only games I'm interested are FF Type-0 and possibly Project Diva... But I guess I'll need to download them in PSN rather than buy it in UMD since PS Vita won't support them, and I think both games are worth keeping for long time.

people i ask you to support this console. The psp, with it's graphic power, has the potential to be a great platform, but it needs third party support, it needs original content, franchises and it needs to sell. if you don't, it we'll end up with a bunch of crappy ports and wasted potential.

Those Vita games as well as the ones announced at E3/Gamescom looks for a pretty strong lineup for both launch and the months after. I do have to wonder what games Capcom might be bringing to the device other than Street Fighter-X-Tekken though, perhaps a Resident Evil? I wouldn't even mind if they ported RE0 and the RE GC Remake! Both would be perfect, especially if they reworked Zero for true multiplayer Co-Op.

Thats a good list Sony is doing a good job promoting it's platforms. However only 5 PSP games means the end is coming. I can't wait for the PSvita Sony hopefully will have the key PSvita games ready in 2012.

I'm leaning away from the portable consoles - if I start getting too into it I might start playing it at work and end up losing my job!

the game producers won't allow that to happen, less games to play, less money for them
