It's late so I'll be somewhat brief here. At midnight PST Sony had a live stream conference about the Vita and its plans for the next few months. For the most part nothing new was announced as far as games go. Everything here should be considered for the Japanese market ONLY. If I get something wrong, PLEASE let me know.
The Vita is dropping roughly 20% in Japan. IF
that price drop comes to the US, that would be
from $249.99 to $199.99.
The Vita REALLY
wants to have a Monster Hunter
-esque game. Losing Monster Hunter 4
to the 3DS was a major blow to the system and they are desperate to find a replacement.
3. Dragon's Crown
still looks really pretty, much like any other Vanillaware game does.
4. Final Fantasy X HD
is STILL in development with no real trailer shown, just a few character models of Tidus and Yuna. The lack of anything else on this makes me believe that this game is STILL months, if not a full year away.
While this conference was focused on games that will be released over the next few months, the lack of anything new being announced is troubling to me. At least tease something at the end to give us hope. To me this just shows that the Vita is struggling even in its homeland.
Let me know what you took away from the conference below.
