    Game Informer executive editor Andrew Reiner is teasing a “surprisingly big show” for PS Vita at E3 next month.

    Reiner's LATEST TWEET follows last weeks AMAZING BIG TITLE TWEET from SCEE manager Shahid Kamal Ahmad.

    It seems like something is brewing at the Sony Vita camp, with Sony themselves stating that PS Vita sales could suddenly spike.

    Hopefully this is the start of what all Vita owners have been waiting for.

    E3 runs June 11-13 2013

    I'm lucky that I can understand Japanese natively....there's too many games on the Vita that I have a backlog on it...

    5 pages, 4 deleted posts and the Vita will still have no gaems.*

    I don't know if he's so far off with his prediction - "KillZone: Mercenary", "Dragon's Crown", "Tearaway", "Final Fantasy X & X-II HD Edition", "Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force (Full Frontal Assault)"and "Warrior's Lair" will hit store shelves this year, "Soul Sacrifice" was just released and judging from the Demo, it's excellent, "Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time" was just released, "Phantasy Star Online 2" is likely to be localized, "Jak & Daxter HD Collection" was announced... there's a lot to look forward to on the PSVita front this year, I'd wait till E3 before making judgements.

    Hardware revision?(probably using cheaper parts to save money and cut costs?)
    Hopefully price cut :)
    Time for some gaems though

    I guess they learned from last year when they had pretty much no show for the Vita.

    There really are a lot of good games already confirmed for this year. I just wish we would see more RPG's here, and more PSN titles from smaller developers. Guacamelee was probably one of the best games I have played on my Vita in ages (Outside of Soul Sacrifice)

    I'm playing Vita since its release, and I'm using it now more than I ever did, but I still can't see a bright future for Vita.

    While cheaper would be nice, I can't see why people would want the PSVita any smaller than it is. Maybe it's just me being all grown up or something, but I'm pretty satisfied with the size - larger console means the buttons/analog sticks/d-pad have a lot of space from each other, which equals less gaming cramps. ;)

    Mainly because of portability and the fact that a smaller system would mean Sony can cut costs in areas such as the screen and other components, I have small hands so cramping doesnt affect me as much.

    I sure hope they do but it would probably focus more on the PS4.

    I heard rumors that Warrior's Lair was canned which would be a fucking shame because it looked really sweet in demos and I want a solid dungeon crawler on the system.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I hope the Vita takes off, it's kinda sad to see how small the retail section for Vita games is when I go to GameStop or best buy. I remember the PSP's library being small, but not that small. Hang in there, my eventual purchase.

    Sounds like a nice advertising campaign for Sony. Hope it works out for them (and that they have something to show for it).

    I hope that the Vita will re-vitalize and finally sell. Then maybe, I could be the proud owner of one.

    Considering how the Vita was almost completely brushed over last year, yeah, just about anything would be "surprisingly" bigger.

    Still, I hope the little guy can pull a 180 here. It's a wonderful piece of hardware, it just needs the software to keep pace.

    Here's for hoping that it wasn't - it does look pretty interesting.
