    Show some darn Playstation Vita titles! E3 2012 was extremely disappointing for Vita.

        You know, that comment is somewhat unnecessary and offensive. I understand you may not feel greatly about Sony, but I am sure you could convey your feelings and opinions in a more constructive and nicer manner.

        The problem isn’t Sony, as they have and will release fantastic games for the Vita (Gravity Rush, Uncharted, Soul Sacrifice, PSABR), its third parties who see no benefit in releasing games for the system when they could just release HD console games. I want a vita, but I’m not buying until they can get more third parties to create NEW software rather than ports of old games.

        Are you on something?

        I’m sorry but it’s not a console it’s a handheld. Second of all Sony are putting games on it. If you want to complain go complain to third party developers.

        If your talking about console as in PS3 then The Last Of Us, Beyond Two Souls, DUST514, Uncharted, God Of War, Resistance, inFAMOUS, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, Motorstorm, Gran Turismo 5, Heavy Rain, MAG, Twisted Metal, Sly Cooper, & more all disagree with you. On top of that it also has multiplats as well as free online, PS Home, & exclusive services and content.

        Troll harder next time troll.
