Sony exec teases “amazing big title” for PS Vita
posted on 05.10.13 at 11:36 AM EDT by (@salromano)
It's not an indie game, according to Sony exec.

An “amazing big title” is coming to PS Vita, Sony Europe senior business development manager Shahid Ahmad is teasing on Twitter.

“I can’t tell you anything about it,” he said, “except that you are gonna be hooked for hours.”

In a separate tweet, he clarified he meant hours “a day.”

And in another tweet, two clues: “not indie” and “talk about one title doesn’t preclude others.”

So when will we hear about this mystery game? “Couldn’t tell you,” Ahmad.

Perhaps E3 then?

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    Whatever it is, I hope its true Vita exclusive. Meaning its only available on the Vita. The platform really needs it in the west.

  • Kickersu18

    Please a big RPG for the Vita!!

    • LordKaiser

      As long as it’s not a online RPG.

      • The Black Rabbit

        I wouldn’t mind both tbh!

        • LordKaiser

          Sony don’t support online RPGs in the west. Look what happened to White Knight Chronicles.

          • Elvick

            They supported WKC. We got all that DLC if I recall, and it’s online was up forever.

            They just didn’t publish WKC2 (lame!), so all it’s issues were because D3 sucks. And by proxy Sony, for not publishing it themselves.

            • LordKaiser

              Sony of JP sub-licensed it to D3P to release it on America who is a very odd move. About WKCI we didn’t got all the DLC either. Both versions we got where very incomplete and even more the 2nd version.

              • Elvick

                Well, then shame on Sony then. I don’t think WKC had any story content like WKC2 did as DLC though, did it?

                • LordKaiser

                  The original WKCI no but it had a few extra quests and Guild Rank reached up to GR20.

                  WKC2 on the other hand….. 10 quests that are the true ending of the game.


                  This is the WKC2 true ending:


      • Niyari

        seriously, we have enough MMO’s and online action rpg’s in the West already.

        • Elvick

          Not on Vita.

    • Budgiecat

      Godzilla RPG

  • lorelai4cuties

    please Gravity Rush 2 .

    • Budgiecat

      Why not a Gamera game

    • Elvick

      I would love for it to be this, but I know it’s not. That wouldn’t be some hyped announcement like this. Which is just sad. Gravity Rush is love~

      Reminded me why I play video games. dat falling up. Such a small thing about the game, but I could do it for hours. Just falling all over the place. Falling through a city street. Falling from the bottom of the city upward to the sky. <3

      So win… I'd imagine Gravity Daze 2 would be announced at TGS or something like that. As long as there is one. There needs to be one.

    • Anthony Foster

      This time in native resolution please.

  • Kefkiroth

    So hyped right now. Indie games are great, but a nice AAA game for the Vita would be amazing and be just what it needs right now.

  • nmnmn

    gta Vita exclusive

  • Keegs79

    Europe? A big AAA title? Big Gran Turismo news to be announced soon? I am thinking Gran Turismo will be on the Vita.

    • Pace

      damn you may be right I knew a new gt was coming but didn’t stop to think it was a possible vita title.

    • hush404

      Yeah, that makes sense. Wouldn’t excite me though.

      • jujubee88

        Cross-play, cross-save, full blown GT for vita and Ps3 is not exciting?

        That seems like that kinda thing I would love personally.

        • hush404

          I’m just not a huge GT kind of gamer. I respect it for what ti is, but I don’t personally find it overly entertaining.

  • Gammer21

    Wasn’t Sony some time this week suppose to announce new titles ?

  • Pace

    I thought it might be minecraft because he handles a lot of indies coming to the vita. hmm im stumped now.

  • Musashi

    I want a great NEW RPG for Vita. Maybe a Persona?

    • Van Sora

      Another one? and it’s not even been a year since 4 the golden

      • MasterSensei

        There has been apparent news of Atlus working on Persona 5 but who knows…

      • Anthony Foster

        But that game is a port of a game that came out in 2008, its been about 5 years since then.

  • The Black Rabbit

    Will it be bigger than persona 4 golden? gravi rush two? or how about assassin’ creed? I’m really curious now!

    • hush404

      Mmm, I would love another AC on Vita.

      • michel

        Yes, but longer and more carefully debugged than the previous one…

  • Aurizen

    maybe its monster hunter. I hope its an RPG.

  • Solomon_Kano

    He’s from SCEE? Gran Turismo’s big in Europe and he’s most likely talking about a first-party title, so…

    • Raiu

      RPGs are also big in Europe as well… Hopefully….

      • LordKaiser

        LOL that’s a nice one. RPGs sells like garbage on Europe.

        • Van Sora

          Not really, Action RPGs are shit ass popular in europe, just not turn based RPGs (only pokemon and FF are popular)

      • Solomon_Kano

        Sadly, no, not that I’ve heard of. Aside from FF, anyway.

  • 罪罰

    If the new Gran Turismo game is on Vitanic, I’m going to murder Kaz.

  • Libby K

    It’s Gran Turismo. I say it with confidence because the same studio accidentally kept tweeting GT: Vita on another tweet. That’s it. Gran Turismo Life.

  • KIngpigeon96

    Can’t wait to be disappointed.

    • jujubee88

      Wait, that doesn’t make sense! XD

  • Fango

    There are very few game genres that would make you want to play for hours at a time…

  • AdachiTohru

    Guys ! You could be disapointed, shahid very like indies game, its surely one of those

    Edit : ” Not indie “OMG ! *Hyped*

    Edit 2 : Im sure its not even exclusive * Not hyped anymore *

    • Elvick

      He flat out said it’s not indie.

      edit; lulz, you saw. :P

  • 武神水樹

    Biggest game I could think of would be Monster Hunter and the GTA series

    • Enigma_XIV

      I really hope Monster Hunter.

  • Kurisu Makise

    Not indie and big title…since Plants vs Zombies 2 is…no longer indie and a fairly big title in that space, could it be be that? I mean he didn’t say exclusive right? Hmm, either way, Shahid is always doing good work, if I was in UK I’d buy him a beer xD!

    • Bumbly Bee

      Is it hyperdimension Neptunia Idol?!! I SURE HOPE SO!
      …..aww who am I kidding? Aint no love for anything niche like that =(

      • Kurisu Makise

        Now you’re making me sad but don’t worry Bumbly, I think NISA will localize the game. I really want to play it too because the idol concept seems fun, especially with the Gameindustri slant lol.

  • Cry_Zero


  • Guest

    Wonder if the word “Amazing” might be a clue? Probably reading too much into it. Or maybe “Big” but doesn’t VIta already have Little Big Planet? Who knows…

  • Nate

    I would love an infamous game.

  • Always No. 9

    “amazing big title” to “Little Big Planet”?…….“talk about one title doesn’t preclude others.”…….mhhh…..#9

  • Raiyu

    I hope its something good…you just never know with Sony anymore.

    • 武神水樹

      I hope it’s not an old IP

  • Marco Tinè

    … Tekken?

    • Rafael Martines

      Tekken 5 and 6 was on PSP… why not Tag Tournament 2 Vita? U__U

  • dior

    Type-0 HD

    • Anthony Foster

      Vitas max resolution is less then 720p, so it wouldn’t really be “HD” unless you think the high DPI makes it “HD”.

      • Hedja

        HD is just a buzzword for anything higher than the old standard 480p resolution. If you define HD as at least 1280×720 then current gen consoles aren’t HD even though it’s the whole big thing this gen.

        • HeatPhoenix

          It depends on which game. There are games on the PS3 that run in 1080p which we named Full HD.

        • TetsuyaHikari

          Right… And the Vita doesn’t support an output any higher than 480p. 720p and up though, like we get on current gen consoles, is considered HD. While there may be some really nice looking Vita games, it’s simply due to the screen. It’s not HD though, unfortunately.

          • Angel Mass

            Not sure how is this an issue though. The games still look detailed and beautiful in the screen.

            • TetsuyaHikari

              Well sure… People thought PS2 games were beautiful for their time as well. N64, PS1, SNES, and even NES also. How is this any different?

              I was merely pointing out what was considered HD. Just because something isn’t HD doesn’t necessarily mean it doesn’t look good. It’s all about that individual’s perception of what they consider “beautiful” on the screen though.

              • Angel Mass

                Yeah I think the same. As long they provide a beautiful graphical experience, they could call it HD, Super HD, Mega Hyper Vision-matic for all I care.

  • Angel Mass

    Monster Hunter here I go!

  • hush404

    I would love if it was MH or FF T-0 (as others have commented on), but I love that he said it would keep us busy for ‘hours’ and forgot ‘a day’ XD

    • Anthony Foster

      Square may have abandoned PSP owners with FFT-0, but I’d buy a Vita for it. But they’ve said it’s not a port so that wont be it.

    • Elvick

      MH wouldn’t be “huge” outside of Japan though. If the announcement were from Japan, I could see that. But it seems more like something that’ll be in line with Europe and America interests. So, western something or other.

  • Zero
    • dior

      Makes sense. Hopefully this one is actually good.

    • 武神水樹

      He said wed be playing it for hours though, don’t think it’s AC

      It’s either Minecraft or Monster Hunter imo

      • psycho_bandaid

        I think you would be getting this leak from Japan if the managed to get a Mon Hun game, right? There is interest in Europe, but it hasnt reached that level of popularity.

  • Franggio Hogland

    Mind=0…I can always hope.

    • psycho_bandaid

      Not a big title. Still though Gung ho is pretty good about getting their vita titles localized

  • tubers

    Hopefully it’s not a freemium model… “a day”? Hmmm..

    Better be GT or GTA.. and exclusive..

    A full port of GT 5/GTA V would be very interesting tho.

  • Anthony Foster

    A new Wipeout! Oh wait…

    • Elvick

      *sigh* R.I.P. Liverpool

      So sad.

  • Alexandre Vieira

    Final Fantasy Versus XIII
