Within the next three months, only ten games will be released for the PlayStation Vita:
Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention – April 17th
Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock – April 2012
Mortal Kombat Vita – May 1st
Resistance: Burning Skies – May 29
Silent Hill: Book of Memories – May 31
Retro City Rampage – May 2012
Madagascar 3: The Video Game – Jun 5
Gravity Rush – Jun 12
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes – Jun 19
LittleBigPlanet – June 26
On that list, the first two games and LittleBigPlanet are essentially ports that have been slightly reworked with the Vita in mind. With the exception of Resistance: Burning Skies, Silent Hill: Book of Memories, and Gravity Rush, there just doesn't seem to be that much interest from developers in the PS Vita after its debut month.
For the rest of the year, there are just five titles planned: Dragon's Crown, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz, Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles, Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD, and Madden NFL 2013. There are more floating around the ether, like Persona 4: The Golden (another port), Sound Shapes, and Street Fighter X Tekken (another port), Final Fantasy X HD, and Call of Duty. But that's about ten games for the last six months of the year.
Now, things don't look that bad, really. There are some rumblings about a Bioshock, an Assassin's Creed, and Killzone. Hopefully, Sony has much more in store for the handheld and is just being tight-lipped for their booth at this year's upcoming E3. I'm sure they do.
