PS Vita line-up unveiled

Sony had announced a list of upcoming titles for the PS Vita handheld console

 

Sony has used the Gamescom videogame expo in Cologne to unveil a list of upcoming titles for its PS Vita handheld console. First party titles showcased a mixture of harcore and causal gaming appeal as titles like Killzone: Mercenary, an FPS title that utilises both touchscreen and more traditional controls, rubbed shoulders with Tearaway, a platformer designed by Media Molecule wrapped in a paper-like visual aesthetic.

A PS Vita version of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 was also announced. The game will contain a campaign mode with a story that runs parallel to the plot in the console title, and a multiplayer, allowing four vs four competitive matches over a Wi-Fi connection. Match types include Team Death Match, Kil and Confirmed, a number of the maps in the game will be exclusive to the PS Vita.

The three new titles join a line-up list that also includes the forthcoming Assassin's Creed: Liberation, Sony announced would have exclusive DLC for the Vita, and the upcoming FIFA 13.

Sony is hoping the news will help shift  more PS Vita handhelds after it reported earlier this month that sales of its handheld devices stood at 1.4 million for the last financial quarter. This means that combined sales of the PSP and PS Vita consoles were less than the 1.8 million unit sales of the PSP for the same period in the previous year.
