Find out what video game industry experts are looking forward to most when PS Vita launches on 23 February 2012.
"I want to see how people will react to the new ways to play that PlayStation Vita brings such as the rear touch pad, Augmented Reality features and AAA titles on a portable device with a real game interface. Plus, I'm interested to see how developers will take advantage of the potential of PS Vita. Looking at the Japan launch titles, the future looks very promising." Shuhei Yoshida, president, SCE Worldwide Studios
"It's going to be great to see consumers get their hands on PS Vita. I believe it will really shake up the whole portable gaming space with richer, deeper and more immersive experiences than before. There are lots of fantastic games coming that deliver true dual analog stick action, as well as existing series that have been reinvented for PS Vita and great, new, innovative games and apps that show off many of the system's other cool features." Michael Denny, senior vice president, SCE Worldwide Studios, Europe
"Escape Plan: it appeals to my aesthetic and auditory senses like few games do. Seems like some great opportunities for fresh gameplay on a new device." Dayne McClurg, community manager, Gotham City Impostors
"I'm looking forward to WipEout 2048, Little Deviants and MotorStorm RC. They're all great games that I've really enjoyed playing this year, and my teams have done a great job bringing them to PS Vita. Apart from those titles I can't wait for people to play Uncharted Golden Abyss and Escape Plan." Mick Hocking, vice president, SCE Worldwide Studios
"Other than our own F1 2011, I'm keen to tinker with some of the AR features and just drool over that amazing screen." Nick Craig, vice president, Codemasters
"I'm really looking forward to the launch of PS Vita. It is a great device and there are loads of games that I can't wait to get my hands on." Simon Bursey, art director, BigBig Studio
"Escape Plan looks like a great little game with interesting and unique gameplay; Gravity Rush seems to be a new concept with a cool style to go with it; and, Uncharted: Golden Abyss seems to push PS Vita to the max – it will be interesting to see how Drake plays on a handheld." Tore Blystad, game director, Hitman: Absolution
"Definitely Resistance: Burning Skies. I know it sounds like I'm plugging my own but that's why I got into this business – to finally see the games on the shelves when they're done." Daniel Brooke, producer, SCE Worldwide Studios
"I'm really excited about Unit 13, which we recently revealed. I think it's going to be one of the most successful titles during the launch window." Ara Demirjian, assistant producer, SCE Worldwide Studios
