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?
