Sony's new handheld gets its ducks in a row ahead of its February debut
While Nintendo's 3DS will have the 2011 holiday season to itself in the portable gaming market, many gamers are eagerly anticipating the February 22, 2012 launch of Sony's new PlayStation Vita. Now, almost as if to say "Save those gift cards until February," the company has shed some light on the games and accessories we can expect to see alongside the new system when it finally debuts.
One of the biggest complaints consumers had when the 3DS launched was the lack of quality titles. Sony hopes to capitalize on Nintendo's misstep — and subsequent drop in sales — by offering a ridiculously beefy game lineup available from day one. So far, a total of 25 games — priced between $9.99 and $49.99, though each title wasn't specifically tagged — are slated for a launch day release. And these aren't just throwaway, I'd-rather-be-playing-Angry-Birds titles either; names like Uncharted, Wipeout, and Rayman are sure to pique the interest of the gaming populous.
