If you're a Vita fan, you were probably just as hopeful as I was that Sony would give it the spotlight during its Gamescom press conference. And man, did Sony deliver. High-production AAA projects were announced in droves; several ports for awesome PC-only indies were revealed; and fast-paced sizzle reels did an incredible job of reminding us all that the Vita has many uses outside of just games. Thanks to Sony's undying support, the Vita is now in a perfect position to beat out its competition.
Sure, some people argue the device suffers from "paltry first-party releases" and "a complete lack of exposure from the very company that designed the thing". And yeah, sometimes they even claim the system is all but dead in a market completely dominated by Nintendo and Apple. But I say NAY to the naysayers. In fact, Gamescom is proof that the Vita is more alive than ever--here's why.
