E3 2011: Two More Promising Titles For PlayStation Vita
Sony's next-gen portable, officially named the PlayStation Vita, got a whole lot of attention at last night's E3 press conference.
As a result, we already know about many of the games that will be available on the nifty new unit, but the titles just keep coming: first is the announcement that both Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath will be headed to the Vita. Both games have already been confirmed for the PlayStation 3. With the two platforms, developer Just Add Water added that the two titles will support cross platform cloud saves, and will be available on the PS Vita "this holiday season." Gotta love Abe.
Furthermore, Namco Bandai has revealed a new Ridge Racer for the Vita. It's only a working title for now but players "can expect high-speed drifting at break-neck speeds in high-performance racing machines with new exciting new gameplay additions." Currently, Ridge Racer Unbounded is slated for the PS3 but this isn't the game that will come to Sony's new handheld.
There are over 80 games in development for the Vita and quite a few confirmed for the system's launch. Undoubtedly, titles like Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Wipeout 2048 will be huge, but let's not forget about new additions like LittleBigPlanet and Street Fighter X Tekken.
