'Uncharted,' 'LBP,' 'Wipeout': a bevy of Vita videos

Following its presentation at Gamescom, Sony released a clutch of clips for its new PlayStation Vita, including
Uncharted: Golden Abyss,
LittleBigPlanet, and
Wipeout 2048.

Wipeout 2048 is unabashed in its ambition to become a graphical showcase for the Vita, just as its predecessors did on PS1, PSP, and PS3.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss performs a similar feat, having already secured the Gamescom award for Best Mobile Game.

Some of the others, like Little Deviants, Super Stardust Delta, ModNation Racers and Top Darts, make use of the Vita's touch controls.

Reality Fighters and graffiti game Tag rely on the Vita's camera, much like the Nintendo 3DS's suite of Augmented Reality Games.

Vita versions of LittleBigPlanet and Everybody's Golf (aka Hot Shots Golf) incorporate both touch and camera features.

Hustle Kings is one of the games that go one further, sporting a cross-platform connectivity that allows Vita owners to pair up with those on PlayStation 3.

Everybody's Golf, Hustle Kings and Top Darts also add a turn-based option to what are usually simultaneous, real-time multiplayer modes - not far removed from the convenience of Words With Friends, Carcassone, and Frozen Synapse.
