PS Vita Release Schedule

Okay, this was the biggest release list in Vita history with commercial, indie, Kickstarted and Japanese games, until I wiped it by accident. However, and with a big sigh of relief, got most of it back together but lost the links, I'll add them in over time. Some niche games, and those that likely will never happen I've ditched, but there may be a few viable ones still missing, let me know if you spot an omission.

  1. I disagree, Vita hasnt even been around a year yet. I seem to remember the ps3, 3ds and even the xbox 360 being really slow to take off. Give it time. Get to the end of this year and we will have loads off stuff to play. Lets face it even if our not a call of duty fan its gunna bring on some sales for the vita! More sales means more developers joining the ps vita train. 2013 will be Vitas year!

  2. how can there be comments from 2012 on a 2014 Release Page?

    1. It used to be the 2012, then 2013 schedule, just keep shunting the old games off the top.

  3. Do you need a FIFA World Cup 2014 schedule & live score update apps? I got Football World Cup 2014 Schedule & Live Score update apps. It is very nice apps. Its totally free for Android user!

  4. I been watch trailer for Samurai Warriors 4, game then interesting, and will try it soon :D

  5. football manager 2015?

  7. Do you believe that pro gamers are the same as pro athletes? Should esports be considered and taken more seriously like traditional sports or are they more like games such as chess?
