I say no. It'll probably be mostly indie and mini games <_<
I had fun once, it was horrible.

Both portables will probably get 100 new games in 2013, and the majority of both will probably be shovelware. I don't think Nintendo has to worry about looking over their shoulder, they actually seem to have a very good lineup of top-notch games for the system this year to offset all of the shovelware.

Nope. Doesn't matter how many games it's got. Only thing keeping me from getting a Vita at this point is the price. $250-$300 for the machine(depending on which version), plus however much for a memory card, plus $40 for a game? I'll stick with my 3ds and PSP for the moment.

The thing is: how many of that 100 games will be original ideas (that means no ports) and of those, how many sail away from Japan?
Vita has a decent roaster there, but if those games don't jump to America, that won't affect vita's sales.
And most of them will probably be app game/indie gamers. I don't complain about the quality of those, I just think that a console whose main support is not given by it's creator nor big companies is endangered.
That is to say, if at least 10-20 games are GOOD and sony helps them get localized, we may have vita for a while. If not, it will be like psp again (I mean outside of Japan).
And there are also another points why Nintendo won't be worried:
-Vita still has to create it's own niche, while the 3DS has already one(and a pretty big one-with that amount of consoles sold in 2 years they have a succesful console live ensured)
-The PS4 will compete with power, which will mean that they games will take longer to produce and will be more expensive (which means not a lot of focus from 1st party studios in there and not a huge amount of money to advertise/localize new ips from 3rd party)
-The whole focus on the advertisement of psv is seriously BAD: it tries to capitalize in the great idea of unified accounts and ps+, as well as the launch of dual plat games. But again, what will happen with the PS4?

Too bad 95 of those games are probably obscure Japanese only games....

I rather have 1 masterpiece than 100 crap games.

I'm trying to think how many of those will be Indie games.

Is this Japan-only? Because the list of upcoming Vita releases in NA and Europe sure doesn't look very big..
