Call Of Duty, Mortal Kombat, Assassin’s Creed To Boost PS Vita Sales – Sony

The slow performance PS Vita’s demonstrated in Japan isn’t worrying Sony one bit, as the firm says it plans to unleash some triple A titles that’s sure to boost the console’s sales beyond what critics expect.

In Japan, a game like Monster Hunter alone can cause millions of units to be moved and Sony’s planning exactly that. In the west, however, you need Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed and Mortal Kombat amongst others to really leave a dent in the market, and in that part of the world, Sony’s also got things under control. Give the firm some credit, people.

“What we really wanted to do, and I think we learned from past, most recent, handheld device launches, is that you don’t want to launch strongly and then go dark for three or four months and have nothing…So in subsequent months for Vita, we have launch, then we have MLB, then we got Mortal Kombat, then Resistance, then Little Big Planet, then Call of Duty, and Assassin’s Creed,” Sony director of hardware marketing John Koller told Gamespot UK.

Now that’s what I’m talking about. Just mention Assassin’s Creed and I’m there, doesn’t matter what platform, I’m buying. My Vita want levels have just went up a few notches.

    Yeah, PS Vita’s always been a must buy for me. Nothing was changing that… I need a dedicated handheld.

    And 3DS isn’t my cup of tea.

  • ExclusivesMostly

    Yea I’m buying one as well. Maybe they do need to cut the price though. There’s now too large of a difference in price between it and the 3ds even though the psvita is well worth it.

    @ExclusivesMostly: I totally agree with you on that point. Although Vita’s more than worth the asking price, Sony might need to slash it some to compete with Nintendo’s handheld. I also believe people will see the value in PS Vita once they purchase and word of mouth will spread.
