The lights are on
The main focus of Sony's nearly 90 minute media briefing on Monday was debuting games for the PS3 and talking about other gaming initiatives, such as PlayStation Mobile. As a result,there was very little said about their newest system: The PlayStation Vita. In an article today from GameSpot, Sony's president, Shuhei Yoshida, explained that Sony had been criticized in the past for conferences that were too long. As a result, they wanted to keep things "very compact and impactful."
However, Yoshida does mention that there are 25 playable titles on the floor at E3, even though only 3 titles were talked about during the briefing: Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified. They also announced that the new White Playstation Vita bundle would include Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, the first game in the franchise to feature a female assassin. The last thing they they talked about, regarding the new handheld, was that PSone classics would soon be downloadable on the Vita.

Even as a Sony fan I find that hard to believe. If that's truly the case, why haven't any of these games been mentioned?
Were they pressed for time when they were marketing the thing too? -.-
Time crunch yea right. You just know not that many people own a vita yet. Make good games for it, allow another id....and it may do better
I blame Wonderbook
So that's why
Yeah, this needs to be really longer. How about this Sony? During E3, today or tommorow, you'll say that some PS2 Classics would be downloadable on the Vita. How about ATV Offroad Fury 1-4? Cool? Cool.
That's all you need Sony, that's all you need.
You didn't have enough time? That can't be an excuse for them. If you didn't have enough time, then you could've cut something out of the presentation (like wonderbook). Another option is to do what Nintendo is doing. They are making a separate conference for the 3DS, so Sony could've done that for the Vita.
