    It’s odd that Sony would choose this juncture to release a brain training competitor. Those games haven’t been on the charts in… quite a while. Is that maybe just because there haven’t been so many lately? Otherwise it seems like this is coming about 4 years too late.

      Damned if they do, damned if they don’t.

      They’re just expanding to a more casual digital entertainment w/c is kinda well established on the other platforms.

        I can see that, but it makes no sense and kind of goes against their really expensive game machine. I thought they were targeting hardcore gamers? I guess that demographic isn’t biting, so onto the casual. but seriously, the casual audience can get stuff like this for .99 or free on cheaper phones.

      They already had brain training games for the PSP when that trend was at its peak. There’s really nothing to react to here, other than another game to pad the Vita library.

    But, they have Smart As… xP

      This is Smart As :P. It’s the japanese name for it.

      • Elvick

        Oh that makes sense then… well the article could have mentioned that. xP

  • Lester Paredes

    Oh, great. Another brain training game. Resident Evil Revelations for Vita? Pass! We want Let’s Do Our Best! *SMH*

      SCEJ is not Capcom obviously so why would they!?

      • Lester Paredes

        Because, Sony is not doing enough for it’s own system. Sony has just as much to say as what comes out on their system as the game makers. Instead of saying: Hey Capcom, let’s let this studio help you make RE for vita, they opt to make a cheap brain training game that their target demographic will not buy.

        • zweii

          You think SCEJ doing their own game for Vita is “not doing enough for its own system.” While having more games is always good they can’t compel Capcom to do anything if they don’t want to. Its their franchise and its their decision and sony can’t do anything about it unless sony buys RE.

          • Lester Paredes

            Well, why not? Sony’s already made a boat load of bad decisions, what’s one more? Like not getting one of their own studios to make a quick, easy port of a game people actually want. And taking half of the profits.

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    Oh, Sony. I’m really starting to lose my patience with you -_-“

    • Elvick

      God forbid consumers have options. Sony, stick to only FPS. They’re most popular. Fewer people to make mad.

      Happy? :D Obviously not. Plenty of people would say that to games you enjoy. Doesn’t mean they should listen.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Don’t understand why people complain about this game here?

    If there are one thing that Vita needs it is surely some appeals to the casual markets. If this game can make some of those market interested with the Vita, it will great.
