Collective Vita Software Sales Hit 300K Units

December 22, 2011 -

New data released by Japanese retail research company Media Create reveals that the 20 titles that launched with the PlayStation Vita sold a combined 300,000 units. This happened, according to the firm, in the first two days of Vita's launch. The system sold an estimated 325,000 units in the same timeframe. According to Andriasang - who translated Media Create's numbers, this gives the Vita an attach-rate of around 0.92 games per system. That rate might be a bit higher because these numbers don't take into account games purchased online through PlayStation Store.

Ten Vita games made the weekly Japanese weekly top 50 chart, with sales figures released for the four best-selling titles. These titles included Hot Shots Golf 6 (61, 412 units), Uncharted: Golden Abyss (48,224), Dynasty Warriors Next (29,181), and Lord of Apocalypse (28,742). Hot Shots Golf 6 and Uncharted: Golden Abyss landed at the #7 and #8 spots on the charts, respectively. The list of games that made it into the Top 50, along with their positions, can be found below:

#7 - Hot Shots Golf 6 (61,412)
#8 - Uncharted: Golden Abyss (48,224)
#18 - Dynasty Warriors Next (29,181)
#19 - Lord of Apocalypse (28,742)
#22 - Disgaea 3 Return
#28 - Ridge Racer
#30 - Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru
#43 - Dream Club Zero Portable
#44 - Katamari Damacy Novita
#50 - Shinobido 2

Re: Collective Vita Software Sales Hit 300K Units

Check your facts GP, and try to proofread. If they sold 25,000 systems (which your article currently states), and they sold 300,000 copies of games, that means that each system was sold with 12 games, not .92 games

Except they actually sold 325,000 systems. Please fix

benohawkThat still isn't Steam pay royalties. At best it is Bethesda not being willing to relicense the music,07/27/2015 - 12:51pm
Infophile(cont'd) different service. This often happened with TV shows, where music was only licensed for broadcast, but not for DVD release. So for many older shows, they either have to relicense it or use different/no music for the DVD release.07/27/2015 - 12:36pm
Infophile@benohawk: It most likely comes down to the original licensing agreement for the music in it. Often those agreements only license it for the medium it first releases in, so it has to be re-licensed if it's rereleased in a different form or through a ...07/27/2015 - 12:35pm
benohawkWhy would steam be paying royalties on anything in quake?07/27/2015 - 12:01pm
black mantaI recommend using the KMQuake II patch which supports .ogg music files, then downloading the music from someplace, then dropping it in to a music folder into the \baseq2 directory.07/27/2015 - 10:32am
black mantaI got Quake 2 during the Steam Quakecon sale. Funny thing is, there's no music for it! Guess Steam didn't want to pay the royalty fees or something.07/27/2015 - 10:30am
black mantaLike EZK, I also have a backlog of games. Right now I'm playing Crysis 3 for the first time, and replaying Quake 2.07/27/2015 - 10:29am
E. Zachary KnightZippy, No. It is because I have a backlog of games a mile long and have not bought to many new games, which includes Mass Effect.07/27/2015 - 9:28am
