Uncharted: Golden Abyss Hotly Anticipated In Japan

Sure, the Japanese still have their personal tastes, but the Western influence on quality gaming is global.

According to a recent Famitsu.com poll (as cited by Andriasang), the #1 most anticipated PlayStation Vita game is Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

The site also asked some general questions pertaining to Sony's new portable, including- "Do you have any plans to buy the system?" Over half the poll participants (50.1%) said they'd pick up the Vita on launch day, 31.6% said they would purchase it at some point, 8.4% said they'd grab it by the end of the year, and only 8.2% said they didn't ever intend to purchase the Vita.

As for the most sought-after games, Golden Abyss grabbed the top spot, just squeaking past Hot Shots Golf 6. Persona 4: The Golden, Ridge Racer, and Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru rounded out the top 5; check out the full list of 20 anticipated titles by clicking on the previous link. And yes, Hot Shots Golf has always been huge in Japan.

So is Golden Abyss your most anticipated Vita title as well? ...yeah, I knew it. Stupid question.

Wow, I'm quite suprised. How did Uncharted 3 do in Japan?

Cool, I hope this game is at least as long as the other Uncharted games. I worry because it's on a handheld.

of course it is its not exactly got much competition!
only game worth getting for the launch which is such a shame.
they really needed LBP or resistance burning skies.
its embarrassing that third parties are supporting the launch better then $ony for crying out loud!
sound familiar?
sigh, i can see this befalling the same fate as the PSP.

There are already 14 games releasing on launch day. I don't think it's a good idea to launch multiple system seller exclusive on the very same day. No Publisher would do that!

I won't be purchasing a vita so the best I can hope for is someday this game will get a PS3 release. Like GoW games for the PSP did. Too bad.

"Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Golden Abyss...? Isn't Sony Bend Studio developing the title, and ND only over seeing the title! Correct me if i m wrong.

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
