PS Vita getting some critical support from heavy hitting franchises.

Also announced is Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation for the PS Vita. Based on the unsuccessful Louisiana rebellion of 1768, it will have the first female protagonist in the history of the franchise.

Announcing 3 (three!) games doesn't really qualify as 'critical' support.

I think it's meant that getting two AAA external franchises on Vita is critical for its success. In other words, it's a critically low number. It's on life support. The third game mentioned is first party.

The Vita clearly needs some support, and Call of Duty is still the largest AAA game franchise on the planet. And there's no telling how the Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, but being an original entry might be a good selling point. So yes, it's some critically needed support - whether it will be enough is anyone's guess.
