Is there really any game that could help Vita sales here in North America?

We've seen four big franchises come to the Vita (Resistance: Burning Skies, Assassin's Creed Liberation, Call of Duty: Black Ops - Declassified, and Uncharted), but these games did little to help the sales for the Vita. I love the Vita but I don't think any game could help the sales for it. Even the Cross Buy feature really isn't helping the Vita's sales. Sure, a lot of RPGs would do well for the Vita in Japan, but a lot of titles are niche titles that really only do well in Japan. I think the only thing left for Sony to do is drop the price of the Vita and memory cards as I don't see any game really helping the Vita out of its sales slump.

I'm telling you, Sega randomly releases Illbleed remade to take advantage of Vita, instant shortages across the country.

An enhanced port of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas or Grand Theft Auto IV would be a system seller in this country.

Western RPGs? A shooter that's not a complete joke?

Looking at the sales for Aliens: Colonial Marines...

It'd probably have to be a garbage shooter based off of a popular series that doesn't get yearly console installments.

It's unlikely that 1 game will "save" the Vita. Sales will improve when the system gets cheaper and it's library gets more beefy. It'll take some time.

God of War for Vita will push some units though.
