Pro Baseball Spirits 2012 seems to be the first "system mover" for Vita, 2k isn't much of a bump, but it is something.

Nice to see Kid Icarus is still holding up there, it'll probably hit 200k next week.

Yeah but unlike the argument that Monster Hunter has (building up a new userbase for MH4), this is without question a disappointment for S-E. They could have made this a PSP game instead, and made it in the same amount of time, and if it is entirely a userbase issue they would have sold as much as BbS.

Wasn't there a sidebet by someone about whether the Vita would go back beyond 12k before it dropped below... 8k, I think it was?

Or possibly just a general observation along those lines?


I'm assuming this wouldn't reflect the memory card addition to the 3G deal yet? I guess we'd have to assume that Pro Baseball Spirits gave a boost... much as I'd like to believe it was all down to LKS.

Edit: WSR crawls past 900k. I think 1M is possible this year, but it's going to be at one hell of a crawl.

They'd have to factor in Western sales though, if we're talking about what platform the game should be released on.

KH games don't generally get ported. Remade maybe, but never ported. I guess that doesn't mean they won't start, but that wouldn't be usual.

Yes, KH didn't do as good as we were hoping, that's for sure. I don't know if consider it "disappointing" or "okaish". At least, this time, there will be really Western sales. XD

A whopping 2k increase for the Vita. Saved confirmed!

Kidding aside though, disappointing for KH, but a really nice increase for the 3DS. Absolutely destroying the Vita right now.
