Borderlands 2, Football Manager Classic and Lego Marvel coming to Vita

Tuesday, 20th August 2013 18:30 GMT By Dave Cook

Sony outlined a number of upcoming Vita releases during gamescom 2013, including at least one present surprise.

One of the highlights is Borderlands 2. Gearbox and Sony were apparently inspired to sign the game to Vita by fan reaction to Randy Pitchford’s suggestion that it would be kind of rad. The port is being developed by Fivekick developer Iron Galaxy Studios, and is due in 2014. No further details were revealed.

Football Manager Classic was also showcased, headed to Vita from Sports Interactive. It’s a mode that was added into Football Manager 2013 on PC and Mac, as a quicker way to play the full Football Manager experience. It boasts a huge database of players, a 3D match engine showing the action, a full tactics module, realistic transfers, AI, and “dozens of playable leagues, with hundreds of manageable clubs from all over the world”. The Vita release is said to have way more features than past PSP games in addition to the 3D match visualiser, and will also have cross-save with the Linux, mac and PC versions.

Sony also noted that Lego Marvel Superheroes and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate are headed to Vita soon.

    But now, the bad news, after seeing the event.

    Vita is pretty fucked up… Well, thats no news, we knew since E3, the point is, we´ve already been told a lot of games would be coming and its not true.

    Well, its true if you read between lines “indie”, which is the only thing Sony can do with it, as, the´ve really told you this in yor face:

    “We dont have any third party working hard for us in AAA games, as Vita productions arent profitable and the console isnt selling. We´ve convinced Gearbox to do a port for Borderlands 2 and we have -only- another two contracts for 2014, but we wont announced it until E3, so dont expect big titles till Q3 2014. If the console have more market with this price cut, things could change.

    Speaking about us, we have all our first parties working or helping for PS4, except the small divisions from studios like Sony Japan who will be doing little games. Dont expect anything soon from us, except our fantastic indie games, which should sell you the console, right?

    Yes, our console is fucked up, on our side, and on thirds side. We will keep this situation till the console have enough market… Some day”

    Extra info on the Vita FM2014 game …

    Particularly of note is that it supports cross save with the PC/MAC versions (Classic mode only presumably). So save to cloud on PC then when out download the cloud version on your Vita and continue. First case of CrossSave between PSV and PC/MAC I think.
