Market experts view the launch of Sony’s PS Vita as less successful than the Playstation Portable (PSP) in terms of revenue. While the PSP sold over 81 million units, the second handheld from Sony sold only 16 million worldwide. But if you look at the features of the PS Vita and you consider them, you will see that this handheld is an excellent product with a stunning OLED screen that is only now appearing on its modern rival the Nintendo Switch. That is just one of the best features that make the PS Vita portable console one of the most comfortable and easy-to-use products on the market. While the PS Vita never took hold of the market in the way Sony and it’s fans hoped, and the release of new Vita games has now ceased apart from a few final physical games. However, if you are already a user of this Sony console, you know that this brand’s products need no introduction. The available game library is an impressive universe of versatile and desirable titles for everyone.
Online Gaming World In Arab Countries
Sony’s consoles are worldwide popular among millions of professional and casual gamers. Due to the recent boom in online gaming in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and UAE, today we want to focus on the Middle East. We’ll dive into the local gaming market to discover how it goes and what news is coming soon.
For those who live in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region it won’t come as a surprise to you that the gaming industry is experiencing a significant boom in the region. To those looking in from the outside, it might astonish to hear the growth numbers. The industry is expanding in the segments of console gaming, handheld gaming, online gaming, mobile gaming, and PC gaming. Some of the growth is fueled by genres of games available for both PC and mobile users. Many casino games fit this niche Middle Eastern mobile and PC gamers can access poker, online Slots, 3D roulette and many other games. Except for a slight interface diversity, both gamers can enjoy the same games from different devices.
Behind the fast diffusion of online games in MENA countries, there might be the recent lockdown periods: being stuck at home for several weeks made young Arab internet users spend more time online looking for entertainment and gaming products.
Most Played PS Vita Games By Arab Gamers
At the same time, a large portion of kids and young adults chose to play home console games. However, once the lockdown is over, getting a handheld gaming device is the best option.
PS Vita’s game library is gaining a favorable share in the global gaming market. PS Vita games go hand in hand with PS Vita TV games, making the PS Vita handheld look like a good gaming option for all the gamers who want to expand their horizons. If you are seeking new games to try, take a look at these most-played PS Vita games by gamers in the MENA region:
Minecraft: PS Vita Edition
You can take your favorite game with you and access it via PS Vita on the go. The developers of Minecraft created a PS Vita-friendly version that will entertain you for hours. When you play Minecraft, you are perfectly free to decide the form and structure of the world inside the game. You can build anything that you can by using a variety of items and resources.
Many Arab gamers are passionate about racing games (keep in mind that the famous Formula 1 Grand Prix 2020 took place in Abu Dhabi in a stunning location between the water and the city’s lights). WipEout 2048 is a thrilling car racing game for PS Vita users and one of the best racing experiences for expert gamers, too. WipEout 2048 comes with several game features that will keep you busy for a long time.
If you are looking for high-level combat content, this is the best option for you. As you may know, the combat genre encompasses many different games, but Mortal Kombat seems not to lose its appeal. The PS Vita edition features several elements from the PS3’s Komplete Edition added with exhilarating gameplay, new costumes, touch-based moves, and a new Challenge Tower that offers 150 missions to complete for the gamers.
In terms of upcoming games, all we have to look forward to now are the last remaining games from Eastasiasoft. Limited Run Games released their final title, Super Meat Boy not too long ago but with their track record of catching us by surprise with games we didn’t know about – such as their release of Horizon Chase Turbo – the next few months from Eastasiasoft could still be pretty exciting for all of us!
