PlayStation Vita Launch Software Announced

So it seems that the Playstation Vita will be getting quite a few games at launch time with prices ranging from $9.99 to $49.99 for titles. I can say that I will not be getting the Vita at launch as I was burned on the 3DS launch. I’m probably never buying anything like that again on the launch date, even the free games didn’t make up for that pricing cut.

The PS Vita platform has the full development support of the gaming industry, including SCE Worldwide Studios and all third-party publishers, who are combining to deliver 25 titles on day one. First-party launch titles will include Escape Plan™, Hot Shots Golf®: World Invitational, Little Deviants™, ModNation™Racers: Road Trip, UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss™, and wipEout® 2048.  Key launch titles from third-party partners will include EA SPORTS FIFA Soccer (Electronic Arts, Inc.), Lumines ™ Electronic Symphony (Ubisoft, Inc.), Touch My Katamari™ (Namco Bandai Games America Inc.), Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3® (Capcom Entertainment, Inc.) and Virtua Tennis™4: World Tour Edition (Sega® of America).

Pricing for all software will range between $9.99- $49.99 (MSRP). Software titles will be available via PS Vita game cards at retail stores or digitally via PlayStation®Network. In addition, a select number of titles will be available exclusively on PlayStation Network

 

The gameplay experience on PS Vita is unmatched by any other mobile device in the market, providing new ways to interact through features such as its 5-inch OLED multi-touch screen and rear touch pad, dual analog sticks, dual cameras, and six-axis motion sensing system. PS Vita will also interact with the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) with compatible titles, offering multi-player gaming across both platforms and cloud-saving so consumers can play a game on one platform and pick up where they left off on the other.

PS Vita will draw consumers deeper into the gameplay experience by providing both 3G/Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi only models, enabling them to connect and play with the world around them, including their friends and other PS Vita owners. A variety of social networking and communications services such as Facebook, flickr, foursquare, Skype™, and Twitter will be available on PS Vita.

PS Vita launches at major retailers in the United States and Canada on February 22, 2012. The Wi-Fi model will be available for $249.99 (MSRP), and the 3G/Wi-Fi model will be available in the United Statesfor $299.99 (MSRP). Consumers who pre-order the PS Vita First Edition Bundle will be able to pick up their devices as early as February 15, 2012. All first-party launch software titles and a selection of peripherals and third-party games will be available that day to support the release of the pre-sale Bundle.

Consumers who purchase PS Vita will also be able to experience Augmented Reality (AR) right out of the box.  Included with every PS Vita system are six AR Play cards and one voucher to download a handful of augmented reality mini games via PlayStation®Network.
