It will force developers to avoid using gimmicky touch and stroke features in the future (except for a few guilty pleasure games) and utilize actual button presses.
The only Vita games really worth getting: Gravity Rush & P4G

I'm sure some games will still use them

Many games will still have them in some form, but for nearly all games from now on (excluding those late in development and ports of touch-centred mobile games), I think we can expect touch controls to be optional.

Yes, my thoughts exactly. That's always been my issue with Vita.

Exactly. Which is all I ever want. The option to not use them.

This was one of the first things that came to mind when I read about the TV, and indeed is the most immediately awesome side effect. I have no interest in this thing, but its existence is justified for this reason alone.

Dont they have that option already? No one is forcing anyone to do touch screens.

Yep. Totally agree. Thank goodness for this. If developers can't think of a good way to use it, they shouldn't add it.

Touch games are great when the developer puts in lots of work to make it fun, instead of a tacked on feature. See lbpv and tearaway
