Interestingly, Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) has opted to forgo the inclusion of online head-to-head multiplayer for the new PS Vita version of Modnation Racers: Road Trip. This comes as quite a bit of a surprise to a lot of folks who were familiar with the game on the PS3 and PSP. It could be that this is due to their wanting to make the game available at launch.
PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies (PvZ) is reportedly going to be available at the time of launch in the US. The game was given rave reviews by many and was personally a favorite of mine. If you haven’t tried it, and you’re planning on getting a Vita, this might be a game to get depending on its cost. The game should have special features that would leverage the Vita’s unique abilities.
The other great thing about this news is that it could be indicative of how the PlayStation Store is being received. Hopefully we’ll continue to see successful dev teams from other marketplaces port and even develop new games for the Vita. Let’s wait and find out.
