You should play these in 2012Wipeout 2048
Coming exclusively to Vita, the Wipeout series made serious waves when it was first released on PlayStation One with its psychedelic visuals, high-speed gameplay and pulsating soundtrack. It's also a franchise that has already translated well to handheld, with both Wipeout Pure and Wipeout Pulse doing very well on PSP. Cross-platform play with PS3 gamers is a real clincher for us, and we've most definitely got faith in the brilliant Studio Liverpool to create the best handheld Wipeout experience yet.

Is there a beat-'em-up fan on this planet that isn't looking forward to the ultimate match-up between these two heavyweight franchises? We're already salivating over the console version, but tag-team battles and furious combo flurries should be just as appealing on Vita. inFamous hero Cole should add a unique twist as a playable character for the Vita version, too, and if Capcom throws in cross-platform play we'll be very happy bunnies.
A Diablo-esque action RPG with social functionality is going to be a completely different type of game for Vita's launch window, and one that may appeal to hardcore gamers. Dungeon-crawling, looting and a deep combat system offering a multitude of satisfying finishing moves are all part of its appeal.
It's going to be interesting to see how the social aspect of Ruin will work. Developer Sony San Diego Studios and Idol Minds says that Vita players will be able to raid each other's lairs in real-time. Players will also be able to use cloud saves so they can move between playing the game on Vita and PS3.
There are many more games to look forward to besides, including FIFA 12, Resistance Burning Skies and Silent Hill: Book of Memories. Let us know what you're looking forward to!
