Uncharted: Golden Abyss (Sony)

On Thursday the company revealed the full launch lineup for their next handheld system. All told, 25 games will be available on its February 22, 2012 launch day, with 100 more games currently in development.

Leading the launch day pack are new entries in big first-party franchises, such as Uncharted, ModNation Racers, Wipeout and Hot Shots Golf. Vita versions of third-party titles like FIFA Soccer, Rayman: Origins, Virtua Tennis and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 should also pique interest.

Sony is hoping to avoid the pitfalls of Nintendo's 3DS system, which launched in March with only 16 titles and saw its sales drop until a price cut revived interest late in the year.

The new portable arrives in two flavors for U.S. and Canadian consumers: a $249 standard Wifi model and a $299 model equipped with 3G/Wifi. The games will range in cost from $9.99 to $49.99.

Sony also revealed pricing for accessories, including memory cards required for saving game data.

The Vita, which packs a 5-inch OLED touchscreen, dual analog sticks, a rear touch panel, motion sensors, rear and front facing cameras and more, is a huge step up from the Sony's last handhled, the disastrous PSP Go.  It's a bold move from the company, which hasn't been a significant player in the portable space in recent years, taking a backseat to both Nintendo's various DS models and the upstart iOS devices from Apple.
