Wipeout 2048 (PS Vita)

Uncharted: Golden Abyss (PS Vita)

Sound Shapes (PS Vita)

It looks like Konami is focusing on HD collections this year, but only of PlayStation 2, Xbox and PlayStation Portable games; no PlayStation 1 games. I’m pleased by this news, especially for Zone of the Enders HD Collection & MGS: Peace Walker HD since I never played them, but I also feel kind of silly for wanting to buy Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 again.

I’ll buy these at a lower price point.

As for these PlayStation Vita game previews? Very promising stuff. Wipeout 2048 looks very nice, but it’s also running at 30 FPS which isn’t Wipeout speeds as far as I’m concerned. But the idea of playing against players on PlayStation 3 via Wipeout HD Fury is neat.
