Yeash at LBP Vita, and dat Medarot 7 drop : (

Honestly I was expecting a bigger number for Final Fantasy III, Mario holds pretty well and Tekken is dropping as expected, woder if the Wii U version'll be better received.
I was expecting like 20k. It's a port of the iOS/Android version, which itself is a port of the DS version. Those devices aren't exactly uncommon in Japan.

LBP on Vita was an expected fail, but as we often see the third party relationship as a problem for (home?) Nintendo consoles, we have to admit that first party products are the weakness of Sony consoles (in Japan at least).
In a situation where third parties are equally interested in PS3 and 3DS, letting Vita struggling, it's clear how the absence of significant first party titles is a problem.
Also because LBP is an internal IP on which Sony invested a lot, imho, compared to other first party brands..

[PS3] LittleBigPlanet 2 (SCE) - 24,648 / 49,674
[PS3] LittleBigPlanet (SCE) - 51,705 / 131,705

[PSP] LittleBigPlanet Portable (SCE) - 4116 / 10,506

* - as of the end of 2011, 2009, and 2009 respectively via Media Create.

how is that hunter x hunter game? it looks actually pretty good for a psp title. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcicJejMN3g
It received poor reviews from Famitsu, and when Famitsu gives a Scamco game a bad review ...

LBP on Vita was an expected fail, but as we often see the third party relationship as a problem for (home?) Nintendo consoles, we have to admit that first party products are the weakness of Sony consoles (in Japane at least).
In a situation where third parties are equally interested in PS3 and 3DS, letting Vita struggling, it's clear how the absence of significant first party titles is a problem.
Also because LBP is an internal IP on which Sony invested a lot, imho, compared to other first party brands..
LBP is a western IP (however meaningful that is at this point) which makes it undesirable to the East, but it is also on Vita, which makes it undesirable to the West.

Basically, it was sent to die. Like most everything else on Vita.

Yeah, they have their Uncharted, Gran Turismo, God of War etc. in the west but pretty much nothing in Japan. Gravity Daze sold reasonably well but nothing amazing.

Very curious to see how Japan will receive Soul Sacrifice, Sony seems to be going all out with it.


[PS3] LittleBigPlanet 2 (SCE) - 24,648 / 49,674
[PS3] LittleBigPlanet (SCE) - 51,705 / 131,705

[PSP] LittleBigPlanet Portable (SCE) - 4116 / 10,506

* - as of the end of 2011, 2009, and 2009 respectively via Media Create.



It received poor reviews from Famitsu, and when Famitsu gives a Scamco game a bad review ...
Ouch, thanks man.

Nintendo will be glad NSMB is showing its legs. 3DS hardware sales too are great, theres demand for the smaller 3DS - Nintendo should get a 3DS Lite to replace the original early next year.

Anyone doubting Brain Age would have legs appears to be wrong too.

LBP is a western IP (however meaningful that is at this point) which makes it undesirable to the East, but it is also on Vita, which makes it undesirable to the West.
Its a sack thats in a portable game, its just not had the same push by SEJ as in the west; the series is decent but not amazing, it needed someone to push it; even if this game is good.

Being on Vita just makes it three times as hard.

Figures aren't surprising. Does show how stupid the Vita strategy is though; the one other game thats coming is made by the studio behind LBP...


Vita should hit 1 million in the next few weeks - I think we should have a Media Create Party.

Pokemon BW2 could hit 3M soon enough. How did BW/Pt sell?
Launch aligned, BW had sold 4.744.211 by this point, Platinum had sold 2,066,300 and HGSS had sold 3.339.872, although all three launched later and were benefiting from holiday sales by this point.

Almost smack-bang in between Platinum and HGSS, although the launch aligned comparisons may be more favourable when BW2 hits its first holiday season.

The damning thing is that sales for the Vita went down when FFIII is compatible with PSP games. Sony should have rethought the whole no UMD policy in Japan. It's pretty clear that users aren't migrating.
