2013 - The year of... Disappointments!?

*checks release list*

Holy crappy line-up, Batman! Are these the only games this system has to offer this year? Brace yourselves, guys, because I sense a lackluster 2013...

I mean, really... If the only thing keeping me from shoving this shiny paperweight in the drawer for the rest of the year is a port of DOA 5 and a Monster Hunter-wannabe, then I shudder to think how other gamers will cope with this atrocity. No wonder this system's flopping... HARD.

And before anyone calls me a troll. Consider this; I bought a Vita for the sole reason of playing games, but from what I'm looking at here, I can't help but make a whole topic about how disappointed I am in this system.

So I'm curious, how do you feel about the Vita's 2013 lineup? Are you disappointed, or does it not bother you one bit?

"And before anyone calls me a troll. Consider this; I bought a Vita for the sole reason of playing games"

Checks PSN ID in sig and sees not a single trophy earned ever.

I actually agree though, the year's line-up is very week for the first half of the year. The only four games that I have a high interest in which are confirmed for western release are Sly, Guacamelee, Killzone Merc, Soul Sacrifice and Tearaway and only two are confirmed for the first half.

With some localizations I think the Vita can have a very strong year though. God Eater 2, PSO2, two Tales games, Muramasa and Ys Celceta no Jukai would be enough to keep me a very happy Vita owner for an entire year.

Then there is always E3 which will likely bring one or two more big games to the table. What the Vita needs is something to kick sales off because third party support will only get worse with the current sales.

I'm very disappointed tbh. I've gotten the Vita box out of the cupboard and I'm now debating whether to eBay it or not. Sony have cocked it up monumentally in my opinion - the hardware is fantastic, but they just can't get the games to match it, both first and third party.

I was going to wait until E3, but I just can't see it being worth it. And as for the announced games for this year - they just don't interest me at all. I'm genuinely disappointed, I thought it would do better than this.

seriously keep it. I'm very vocal about my distaste for the Vita this far and I'll keep it until it's discontinued. What if just one game comes out that you want? If you have the Vita, then you just have to buy the game, if you sold your Vita, then you'll wonder if you would have enjoyed that game. No matter what, there will be atleast that one game that comes out yearly that you'll want to play on Vita. Since you already bought the Vita, just keep it for the promise of atleast one game a year!

That hardly seems worth it though. I'd rather sell it and use the money for a 3DSXL, so I can get Pokemon later this year.

I am in two minds though, going to a handheld with only one analogue stick won't be fun, the Vita really has perfected handheld controls in my opinion. And some of the games look great, so it'll be a big downgrade there too. But if that's the price to pay for actually having games released...
