Sony Announces 75 Possible Launch Game Titles For The PS Vita

Sony have reportedly released a list of 75 videogame titles which should become available when its latest handheld console, the PS Vita, launches early next year. However, we also ought to point out that these games are all currently 'work-in-progress' and thus it is possible that some of the games included on the list might change by the actual launch date.

Futhermore, the console is set to launch in Japan in December this year, and it is yet unclear whether some of these games will be exclusively available in the Japanese launch, or whether the same games will also make it to the European release as well.

Nevertheless, the list includes games from a wide range of genres including educational titles, which is unusual on a Sony handheld, and thus it looks as though Sony are determined to cater to as many gamers as possible from day one of the PS Vita launch.

    The list may help to promote the PS Vita to users of the original PSP handhelds, who may have been worried about a lack of decent software at launch.

    The PS Vita's predecessor, the PSP Go wa criticised by gamers, mainly for two reasons: Firstly, the console did not have enough core titles to sustain interest from the handheld gaming market, and secondly, the PSP Go only featured downloadable games, with no UMD slot, which meant that there were no hard copies of the software available for purchase anywhere.

    With Sony's announcement that it will be producing PS Vita games on a new type of memory stick called an 'NVG card', and now a detailed list of possible launch titles, it seems as though Sony is determined to correct past mistakes and make the PS Vita into a truly memorable console. However, only time will tell if the gaming community is ready to accept such a device.
