Sony has seemingly listened to fans after the quiet show that Vita had at E3. They’ve kicked off their Gamescom show by openly stating a focus on the powerful little device and part of that focus is, rightly, on the tentpole releases of this autumn.
The Vita is getting bundle deals, similar to the previously announced Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation one. LittleBigPlanet will be thrown in with the console, which is good news for Sony’s iconic platformer but it’s not the biggest bundle news. That accolade falls to Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified.
The Declassified bundle will include a custom rear touch panel, presumably replacing the masses of tiny PlayStation button symbols with something suitably shooty. It’ll also have a Call of Duty “pouch” which sounds like a soft slip case to me.
It’s great to see that Sony has really focussed on the Vita and working closely with hugely important third parties as the year turns towards that all important holiday sales period.
