REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

PlayStation Vita Buyer's Guide

Posted on Friday, February 3 @ 16:40:00 Eastern by

Sony's PlayStation Vita launches this month, meaning there's going to be a ton of new games, accessories, and the hardware itself you'll have to pony up the dough for. Let GameRevolution take you on a guided tour of everything you need so your day one handheld experience is the best it can possibly be.


With the hardware and accessories in your hands, you'll obviously need something play! Here are the best PlayStation Vita games to spend your money on at launch, along with two PSN games to mix things up with:

Uncharted: Golden Abyss: An Uncharted experience on the go? You might not think it possible, but somehow they've packed the tech needed to bring Nathan Drake and his adventure to life in your hands. I honestly didn't think it would work either, but even GR's own Anthony Severino attests that Golden Abyss is neck and neck with the PlayStation 3 games in terms of adventuring experience. Rounding out the launch day package is a set of touch controls that let you climb, brawl, and interact with Drake directly on screen.
$49.99

Lumines: Electronic Symphony: This should be a no-brainer. If you had a PSP, you'll know that Lumines was one of the only reasons you ever needed to own a PSP. Get your music-driven puzzle game on! All those colors will look fantastic on the Vita's screen, but the potential for DLC tracks and an ever-evolving Lumines experience means you'll want to get in on the ground early with this on-the-go title from Ubisoft.
$39.99

Rayman Origins: So it's clear that we love this game, right? That's clear by now. OK, just making sure. Why should you buy it on the Vita? Those drop-dead gorgeous 2D graphics will look absolutely stellar on the Vita's high-resolution OLED screen. If you need a game other than Uncharted that'll show off the handheld's gorgeous graphics, Rayman Origins will definitely do the job. Oh, and it's really fun to play too.
$39.99

Little Deviants: Yes, yes, it's true. The PlayStation Vita can certainly hold its own when we're talking hardcore games, but you really need to justify all this money you just spent and mom or your meatheaded friend just aren't getting it. Maybe if they played something on the machine they'd understand. Put Little Deviants in their hands and watch them smile fiendishly as they slowly realize they don't want to give you back your PlayStation Vita. Tons of new ways to play, including heavy use of the both touch surfaces will put a smile on anyone's face though.
$29.99

EA SPORTS FIFA Soccer: When it comes to international video game phenomenons, FIFA Soccer really doesn't stop. Already addicted to futbol on your home console? EA is happy to let you take it on the go with you on the PlayStation Vita. That's really it, you know what you're getting into here right?
$39.99

Super StarDust Delta: Looking to download something from the PSN? Wanna make sure you put those two analog sticks to good use? Start busting asteroids and more space junk in Super StarDust Delta. The PSN-only title is also only available for the PlayStation Vita. One of the best games on the PS3's PS Store has made the jump with you to the new portable. Seriously, we love busting space-rocks.
$9.99

Plants Vs. Zombies: Wait... they're going to have Plants Vs. Zombies on the PlayStation Vita?! Are you kidding?! Oh man, I can't wait to play that game!
$9.99

That's it! Enjoy your PlayStation Vita!
