Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

What Vita games will play best on PlayStation TV?

That's a fun question to conjure with as I try and think how something will look blown up from a small OLED screen to a whacking great 32" or 40" plus screen thanks to PlayStation TV. The current leader of the pack has to be Killzone Mercenary with the improved scale making it easier to spot and aim at distant Helghast troopers.

A recent patch for the game adds improved DualShock controls and, as with most shooters, it really deserves the big-screen experience. In fact, I'm shocked Sony hasn't done a HD version as happened with a few Vita games (Assassin's Creed) to get it on PS4. Obviously, PS4 owners can scoff at my list and move on.

So, apart from the Vita's only major shooter, what else should look great moving on up from the small to the big screen? Interestingly almost every game I own on cart is currently incompatible, hmm! That minor detail aside, here's my little list, feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments:

  • Ridge Racer: Shallow, yes, but it does look gorgeous
  • Toukiden: Has the detail that most other monster hunters lack
  • Akiba's Trip: The world of Akiba deserves a peek on the big screen
  • Demon Gaze: Really want to see those dungeons on a big platform

And that's your lot really! Wonder if you really need to own a PS4 to get the most from the PlayStation TV, or have an immense interest in PSP and PSOne games.
