Christmas Gift Guide: PS Vita Games

We pick the best of the PS Vita games to save you time choosing which to buy.

Sony’s PS Vita has been out for almost 2 years now and it’s an absolutely cracking handheld system.

There’s a great selection of games for the device and with the recent launch of PlayStation 4, and integration between the two devices, there’s never been a better time to get your hands on one.

Below you’ll find our top picks for PS Vita gamers. Stay tuned to EF for games gift guides for other systems.

A new entry in the Killzone franchise developed exclusively for PS Vita. Boasting an eight hour single player campaign and online multiplayer for eight players this is a title that will really keep shooter fans happy this Christmas.

The game features a large cast of characters and plenty of brilliant puzzles. With different paths through the game and multiple endings it is also packed with replay value. One of our favourite Vita titles.
