Everybody's Golf, Virtua Tennis 4 and Gravity Rush clips make grand claims for Vita

As you may've noticed, everything is happening all at once this week, with the combined weight of Gamescom's announcements and unveilings surely pushing human consciousness ever-closer to some sort of ludological Singularity point. Hence, here's a quick look at three titles unified by one theme: they're early releases for the PlayStation Vita, which want to make sure you know that Sony's new system is literally capable of doing more things than God on meth. Virtua Tennis 4: “First-person virtual reality!” Gravity Rush: “Use PS Vita to control the forces of gravity!” Everybody's Golf: um... “Interactive touch-screen!” As opposed to a non-interactive one?

Of these three, Gravity Rush is probably our fave so far, with the animation-influenced title's development at SCE Japan headed by Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama. Read our first preview of it here. None have release dates yet, but expect them to contribute to an increasingly strong early lineup for Sony's machine. Which one are you most interested in?

    Everybody's Golf, isn't that Hot Shot's Golf here in America? That looked amazing, better than the PS3 version I have. That's a day one right up there with Uncharted for the Vita. I've never purchased a handheld in the first year, but the Vita may be a day one for me, it looks incredible.

    @BlitzIzDaShitz Sorry to say, but you are extremely stupid to say that the 3DS is a DS with 3D.

    @BlitslxDaShitz People like you is the reason 3DS didn't sell like it should have. It isn't a DS with 3D, it has its own unique games and capabilites, between Wii and 360 graphics. Plus, you sound like a total Sonynite. As, for "Gravity Rush", Amazon says its "Gravity Daze", but the hands-on a while ago said it was "Gravity". WTF?

    These all look pretty awesome! i think i'm more excited for Gravity Rush but i kinda preferred the title being Gravity Daze. Also, why does sony keep showing these trailers as if they were on the actual PS Vita? sometimes it bothers me that i dont get to see the actual footage in full screen

    Can't wait for the Vita!!! Looks like the best handheld gaming console ever so far. 3DS is just a ds with 3d, Vita is a suped up tech geeks wet dream.
