Mortal Kombat comes to the Vita this Spring

The software line-up for the PlayStation Vita is looking more and more impressive all the time. Learning from the mistakes of the Nintendo 3DS, the Vita has loaded up its launch window with massive hits and plenty of options. In fact, the entire year will see a huge number of big name hits, but the launch window through the Spring is absolutely packed.

One of those major releases has now been confirmed to be Mortal Kombat, which will be released this Spring.

The portable version will be a port of the console game that debuted last April and went on to sell over three million copies. The Vita version is promising a few new tricks that will be unveiled over the coming months, but it will include a full story mode, the x-ray moves, and (of course) fatalities.  

The Vita will hit North America on February 15, and the list of titles that will be available on that day is growing ever more impressive. As it stands today, 24 games will be available on launch day, at least three games are confirmed for a March release, and at least 10 titles are listed for Spring 2012 with more to possibly follow.

PlayStation 5 Disc Console Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Bundle -- $499, was $560

Snap up this bundle and you get one of the best games of the year but you stick with the original PlayStation 5 which was very recently retired in favor of the slimmer model. It's still the PS5 we all know and love, but it's a bit bulkier than the slim while having slightly less storage space which can be rectified with one of the best SSDs for the PS5. There's also the delight of the adaptive triggers on the controller which work brilliantly alongside Marvel's Spider-Man 2 so you can feel more immersed in all the web-slinging that's going on. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is regarded as one of the best PS5 games around right now thanks to offering a compelling storyline and fantastic action. This time around, you can switch between playing Peter Parker and Miles Morales so it's great for Marvel fans. 3D spatial audio is available for the game so you get a truly immersive experience aurally too. Much of the fun comes from leaping around New York City with truly gorgeous graphics drawing you into the game world.
