After reading some of the comments from the Most Wanted and AC:3 Liberation threads, it has come to my mind that they really should stick to just making new IPs.
Why? Because people compare it a lot to the console versions of those games.
I am playing through Most Wanted on my PSP and I been comparing it to Most Wanted in my Vita and honestly my mind is blown on just how it;s even possible to even do this. But of course people are going to complain on how it doesn't look as good as the PS3 version.
Same with Liberation and Bloodlines and the iOS and DS garbage we got, now this is an actual AC game on a handheld and it looks and play spectacular but of course it doesn't look as good as AC3 so let's bash on it. Of course the game has it's hiccups(has happened to me) but I take those hiccups for this experience I can finally get on a handheld.
Now of course both games could have taken away some things up in order to increase performance just as the frame rate issue, but then people wouldn't want to buy them at all because then they will really look like crap.
If we got a new Need for Speed game that's just exclusive to the Vita, then I think people will just rightfully judge it on it's own merits and not on how it doesn't look anything like the PS3 version.

Well, Assassin's Creed I cant comment on (don't like it so far, plays like the first one, which I didn't like. Haven't tried the others.) However, a Need for Speed made specifically for vita would not go well. The devs who make the console version would just let someone else make it. Need for Speed is perfect as is. Same with Marvel vs Capcom 3. Just let it be a port if it means not giving it to some dev who havent made a big game. We don't need more Resistance and probably CODs if it means it not being made by their regular devs.

I own both NFS:MW and AC3:Liberation and I think both games are great. I own a PS3 and in no way am I expecting them to be as high in quality as their console companions. Regardless of how much i enjoy both games there will always be some who don't share my views and i'm alright with that. The important thing is to have your own opinion and not to make judgement based on what some gaming sites may say about a particular game. Metacritic is great to see actual user reviews. If it's the type of game that you like and others are saying that it's worth the purchase then it allows one the incentive to decide for themselves whether or not they want to invest in the software.
New IP's are great, but it still doesn't change the fact that it would be so cool to play console games like Batman Arkham City and other great games on the Vita. So Sony if youy're listening keep allowing us to have the choice on where and how we play games.
