10.BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend
Arc System Works' frantic and beautifully animated cash cow, BlazBlue, lands on the PS Vita in the form of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend. The gorgeous 2D fighting game includes a number of enhancements designed to make the one-on-one fisticuffs a deep portable experience. There's an all-new playable character (Relius Clover), new gameplay modes (Unlimited Mars, Abyss, Challenge), and online team battles. In addition, the characters have been thoroughly rebalanced to make fights more competitive.
9.FIFA Soccer 12
Hardcore football action arrives on the Vita in the form of EA Sport's FIFA Soccer 12. The sports title, which contains over 500 licensed teams, features precise shooting that's executed by swiping the Vita's rear touchpad, touchscreen passing, and console-quality graphics. If you want the world's most popular sport in the palm of your hand, this is the way to go.
Japan Studio's Gravity Rush may not be available on the first day of the Vita's availability, but this game in which you manipulate gravity is one to keep your eye on. In it you play Kat, a young girl who uses her newfound gee-power to fly, walk on walls, and deliver powerful gravity strikes to enemies who have overrun her town.
7.Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
If you fancy video game golf, but don't dig the hyper-realistic simulations seen in games such as the Tiger Woods franchise, Clap Hanz' Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational just may be the game for you. The over-the-top, arcade-style golf franchise features a variety of wacky golfers, a new swing mechanic that utilizes the PS Vita's touchpanel, and leaderboards to let you chase opponents' scores on the green.

Rayman Origins is one of the most beautiful (and frantic!) games on the market today. This 2D platformer features intense hop-and-bop, four-player action that out-Marios Mario. Ubisoft's title takes place in the Glade of Dreams, a world created by the mysterious Bubble Dreamer. Rayman and his friends rush into action to save the world when dark forces send an army of evil creatures and Darktoons to capture Electoons and Nymphs that inhabit the world. Rayman Origins supports four-player action that sees players working both cooperatively and competitively in order to advance through stages.[/img]
4.Touch My Katamari
Namco Bandia's other PS Vita launch title may have a naughty name, but it has mass appeal for the casual and hardcore gamer alike. The latest Katamari series entry once again demands that you roll up items, but this time out you can do it using the Vita's touch screen or the dual analog sticks. A completely new Katamari feature allows gamers to use the Vita's rear-touch panel to stretch the ball either horizontally or vertically to pick up more objects at once or squeeze through gaps.
