Titanfall Review
It's safe to say that Titanfall is the first highly-anticipated next gen (or should I say current gen) game for 2014.Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall received some huge hype at E3, and it was well deserved. Although the game is not perfect, it's heading in the r... [read more]

Playstation Blog details PS Vita launch and day one games
Posted on December 23, 2011 by

We are two months away from the North American launch of the PS Vita and SCEA’s director of hardware marketing John Koller made a couple of announcements regarding it on the Playstation blog. First up on the post are the games for the Vita. There will be 25 games that will be launching alongside the PS Vita that will range between the prices of $9.99 to $49.99. The games, available as download and retail are as follows, starting with the Sony first party games:

  • Escape Plan (PSN Only), 
  • Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, 
  • Hustle Kings (PSN Only), 
  • Little Deviants, 
  • ModNation Racers: Road Trip, 
  • Super StarDust Delta (PSN only), 
  • UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss, 
  • wipEout 2048, 

The second set of games are games from third party partners and will also launch alongside the Vita:

  • Army Corps of Hell- Square Enix, 
  • Asphalt Injection- Ubisoft, 
  • BEN10 GALACTIC RACING- D3 Publisher of America, 
  • Blazblue: Continuum Shift EXTEND- Aksys Games, 
  • Dungeon Hunter Alliance- Ubisoft, 
  • F1 2011- Codemasters, 
  • EA SPORTS FIFA Soccer- Electronic Arts, 
  • Lumines Electronic Symphony- Ubisoft, 
  • Michael Jackson: The Experience- Ubisoft, 
  • Plants vs. Zombies (PSN)- SOE, 
  • Rayman Origins- Ubisoft, 
  • Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen- Namco Bandai, 
  • Tales of Space: Mutants Blobs (PSN)- Drinkbox Studios, 
  • Touch My Katamari- Namco Bandai, 
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3- Capcom, 
  • Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition- SEGA, 

In addition to these 25 launch games, there will be 10 launch window titles that will release a month or so after the Vita. Those games are as follows:

  • Gravity Rush, 
  • MLB 12 The Show, 
  • Reality Fighters, 
  • Unit 13, 
  • LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7- WB Interactive, 
  • Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention- NIS America, 
  • NINJA GAIDEN SIGMA PLUS- Tecmo Koei, 
  • Ridge Racer- Namco Bandai, 
  • Silent Hill Book of Memories- Konami, 
  • Supremacy MMA: Unrestricted- 505 Games

If you were one of the many that took advantage of getting the First Edition Bundle and were worried that you were just going to get one game, Sony has took that into consideration and will be releasing the games at the same time as the First Edition. For those not wanting the First Edition, Sony also listed the prices of accessories that will be available for sale. Those are as follows:

Product Name

MSRP

4 GB Memory Card

$19.99

8 GB Memory Card

$29.99

16 GB Memory Card

$59.99

32 GB Memory Card

$99.99

Starter Kit with Memory Card

$39.99

In-Ear Headset

$19.99

Carrying Case

$19.99

Travel Pouch

$19.99

Protective Film (2 pack)

$9.99

Cradle

$19.99

Portable Charger

$49.99

AC Adaptor

$14.99

$14.99

USB Cable

$14.99

 

From the looks of it, not only are a majority of the North American launch titles match what I have predicted to be in an article about the Japanese Vita lineup a few months back, but this will be the largest game lineup for a console, both home and portable. The memory sticks, also, seem to be priced fairly well with the 32GB at $100. My only question is, will we see the same services that were offered in Japan, here in the US. Like will we see a dedicated Twiiter app, Facebook app, a Youtube app or will we be able to stream our gameplay? Either way, I might just be one of the many who will be picking up a PS Vita come February 22 with one of those games and a 16GB memory card.
