Sony actually has 25 new Vita games at E3... but forgot to mention them

We were all ready to write an article about how Sony completely failed to recognise the need to show much-needed new games for PlayStation Vita at its press conference on Monday. We knew it was necessary, you knew it was necessary - everybody, it seems, knew it was necessary. Except Sony, who have today admitted that, in trying to cut down the length of its press conference, they missed out the Vita. And actually there are 25 new games to play on the showfloor. Get your Picard facepalm pics ready, folks.

Above: A great bundle, no doubt. But wasn't there something else to mention...?

"As far as how our conference went - it went as well as we thought it could," Sony Worldwide Studios chief Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer. "I'm getting lots of tweets from people saying, 'where are PS Vita games?' That was, in retrospect, our fault - not looking at every angle when we designed the programme for the show. We have 25 new games, Vita titles, playable on the show floor. We could have spent more time - probably we should - showing off those games coming out this year."

In the words of Charlie Brown: Oh good grief. OK, so: Check back soon to read what our team on the showfloor makes of Vita's absolutely vital second wave of software. Now: Hands up who wants to start E3 again so everyone can do it properly?
