What Are The PlayStation VITA Launch Titles, Exactly?

Posted on Friday, February 3 @ 14:14:12 Eastern by

Even as someone in the business, I'm confused about the VITA's launch titles. Sony came out with a long release list back in December on its official blog, and while that clarified much, it still didn't clarify everything.

Which games are actually available on the console's February 22 release date? Which are available during the early week release for the First Edition Bundle on February 15? And what about those "launch window" titles? What's that supposed to mean? How long is a launch window anyway? Isn't that just an excuse to release a title whenever you want?

Regardless, I've taken the time to comb over all the primary source material (aka not jst Wikipedia) to compile a comprehensive list for the entire PS Vita launch list.
