The handheld market has rapidly changed since the original PSP launched back in 2004, mobile phones have become more advanced and more people are playing these ‘bitesized’ gaming apps. They’re cheap to buy and perfect for wasting a few minutes on here and there. However the biggest hurdle smartphone gaming has is control. Sure touch screen is cool and all that, but it will never replace the tactile input of the humble button. Plus having to use the same display that the game being played on can lead to you losing out on what’s happening on the screen. But smartphone gaming shouldn’t be completely written off just yet, there are a number of titles available on the App Store that would be perfect for PlayStation Vita.
As much as it pains us to say there are a few iOS games that would be great on Vita, and if Sony hope to take on the mobile gaming market they need to bring across some of these smaller titles. We’ve given you our choices and now it’s over to you – our fantastic readers. Is there a hidden iOS gem you’d love to see appear on PlayStation Vita? Maybe there’s an iPhone title you think would be greatly improved by coming to PSV. Let us know over in the PlayStationer.net forums, and we’ll take a look at some of your choices later in the month.
