When it comes down to the PlayStation Vita many people say that the handheld gaming console paled in comparison to the likes of the Nintendo 3DS and the PSP. But for some reason it seems like we don’t get the chance to see many PS4 games receive ports for the PlayStation Vita. There are games such as Overwatch, Titanfall 2, Final Fantasy XV and many others that could turn the heads of gamers and make theme want to purchase the PlayStation Vita.
Also, having video game titles such as Final Fantasy XV and Overwatch ported for the PlayStation Vita could help the sales of the console as well since Nintendo 2DS & 3DS does not have the ability to play those type of games. There should definitely be more mainstream PS4 titles that should be ported for the PlayStation Vita unless Sony decides to release a new portable game console in the future.
For over the past few years gamers has the opportunity of seeing some very cool fighting titles released for consoles such as the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. When it comes down to fighting games between 2015-2017 two major titles that people like to mention is Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V. In terms of which game was more successful in terms of sales many people are likely to say that Tekken 7 had a significant edge over Street Fighter V in countries such Japan.
However, before Tekken 7 was first released many people knew that it was as most likely going to be the last game in the series. The fact that Tekken 7 is most likely going to be the final game in the series was probably one of the things that made people want to buy the game despite how expensive the game was during its release. When Capcom had released Street Fighter V in February 2016 the development of the game itself was not fully complete similar to how Soul Calibur V was back in February of 2012. However, after the story mode of Street Fighter V was fully complete along with the addition of more characters it turned out to be a really good game overall. In terms of which game was successful overall is something that is debatable between Capcom and Namco fans.
As far as action adventure titles are concerned one of the many titles that gamers are looking forward to is the new Spider-Man game which is expected to be released some time in early to mid 2018. However, the new Spider-Man seems like it’s only going to be available for the PlayStation 4. While this PS4 exclusive makes the new Spider-Man more desirable to own some are questioning why the game is only available for the PlayStation 4 and not the Xbox One.
In terms of pricing the Xbox One is much more affordable then it was a few years and people can by an Xbox One S for around $299 plus tax at stores such as GameStop. Also, since the Xbox One X is expected to arrive in electronic retail stores in November 2017 it will be interesting to see if Insomniac Games decides to take steps in having the game ported for that console sometime in 2018.
There has been a lot of speculation about the release of the PlayStation 5 and whet or not the console will arrive sooner than expected. However, the PlayStation 4 Pro was released in November 2016 which was almost a year ago. Since the release of the PS4 Pro the PlayStation 4 console in general had reached over 60 million units worldwide in terms of sales.
While that is an impressive feat along with the fact that the PS4 console will continue to increase in terms of worldwide shipments and sales the truth is that the console in general has been available in retail since the fall of 2013. Usually, Sony waits at least every five or six years to release another next generation console so it’s hard to say whether or not we will see a PS5 in 2018.
It’s hard to say right now how well Sonic Mania will do in terms of sales for game consoles such as the Nintendo Switch or the PlayStation 4. Back when Sonic the Hedgehog was released for the 16 bit Sega Genesis consoles in the early 90’s the series ended up becoming one of the regards to platform games during the 90’s. However, the landscape of gaming has changed dramatically since then.
The idea of using 16 bit like graphics for the Sonic Mania is something that would definitely appeal to retro gamers along with modern day gamers who missed out on how exciting 2D platform titles were back then. In terms of popularity the Sonic the Hedgehog series has never been quite the the same as it was back in the 90’s. However, Sonic Mania can play a significant role in revitalizing the series overall since some of the 2D titles are considered to be more popular then some of the more recent 3D games in the series.
When it comes down to action adventure titles the original Red Dead Redemption game was one of the hottest titles of the earl 10’s. Since its release back in the Spring of 2010 the original Red Dead Redemption game has sold over 6 million units for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 while receiving praise from fans and critics alike in game elements such as graphics, voice acting and storytelling.
As of right now RockStar is looking to release Red Dead Redemption sometime in 2018. As of right we are still in the dark about various aspects game such as the plot and whether or not there will be any new characters. However, Red Dead Redemption 2 will most likely be one of the most anticipated action adventure titles of 2018. As of right now it’s a little to early to speculate whether or not Red Dead Redemption 2 could surpass the original in terms of sales but it will be interesting to see how the game does during its first week in terms of sales.
When it comes down to fighting titles of the PlayStation 4 J Stars Victory vs was probably on of the most underrated titles for the PlayStation 4. If you were a huge manga reader or a fan of anime then J Stars Victory vs was a must in terms of games to own for the PlayStation 4. This game has featured characters from anime and manga series such as One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, Dragonball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho and more which made J Stars Victory vs such a great multiplayer title for the PS4.
There were various features included in J Stars Victory vs that contributes to the overall replay value of the game itself including multi-player story mode “J Adventure” along with the multiplayer battle mode “Victory Road”. While J Stars Victory vs has been criticized by some people for not having an in Detroit it’s still a game that many would love to see ported for the PlayStation Neo in the future.
