EGM’s TAKE: We believe that the Vita has amassed one of the strongest launch line-ups to date and with the number of titles set to rise to 100 within the console’s launch window, you can’t cite a lack of software as a reason for not purchasing one.

Has this impressive launch line-up convinced you to take a chance on the Vita?
