Seems to me that most of the titles slated for release on the PlayStation Vita are mostly pervy massage games. I’m not against these types of games, but it does give the system a sort of bad stigma in the eyes of the average consumer. To those of us that are a bit more open minded or those who have actually used a PS Vita we may think differently about Sony’s forgotten child. It’s a pretty cool piece of tech and I tend to like ecchi games so its right up my ally.
I tend to like ecchi games
Titles like To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness are my kind of *transition titles (games I play between bigger releases). If you’ve been following a few of my most recent reviews you’ll see that I do play a few ecchi themed games. However even though I may like games like these, most gamers don’t, and having so many show up on the PS Vita may be a bad thing for the system.
The systems sales may have picked up because of remote play support for the PS4, but that alone is not enough to save the system. It is currently behind its main competitor the 3DS that has 49.98 Mil Units to the Vita’s 9.52 Mil Units sold.
Those of us that own Vitas want more quality games. Many of the titles that I want are released only in japan so that means that I may never even be able to play them. What I believe Sony needs to do is take a page out of Nintendo’s play book and self publish some titles for other regions to help fill out the system’s library. They also need to change the system’s image a bit through advertising. I’ve not seen a Vita Ad in ages, but I’m always seeing 3DS ads on Hulu, Tele, or YouTube. Sony needs to advertise the device better or it’s just going to become an afterthought in the handheld market.
