    “Other notable PS Vita titles released that can’t be tracked because they are download only are Escape Plan, Super Stardust Delta, and Little Deviants.”
    What? My little Deviants is not download only but did come free with the first vita bundle.

  2. Mike Ferro:

    @ncaissie,

    Good catch, you are correct. Its been fixed. Thanks.

  3. ncaissie:

    Awesome game btw.

  4. CarlB:

    They did outsell… Syndicate.
    I think it will be more interesting to see official numbers comparing Vita’s worldwide launch sales to PSP’s. VGC’s numbers aren’t encouraging, but they are VG, so it might not be that bad. What is encouraging is that we may expect to see Vita become as much a bargain as PS3 eventually did:

    “We’re taking a long term and committed view on PS Vita as a platform, just as we did with PS3 and continue to do so today”

    I’m really interested to see how it evolves over time.

  5. Godless:

    Sony must be happy to see 5 Sony titles in the chart. Only EA has managed to have more titles (6 EA titles)

  13. dans303:

    Wait, you guys liked Patapon? I got about 2 and a half hours into the first one and just couldn’t play anymore of it.

  14. Roca.:

    why not?

    Patapon have been nominated PSP game of the year many times. Game is awesome.

  15. Godless:

    What is patapon?

    From what I have read, the third one won’t work on the Vita

  16. Roca.:

    it’s a strategy/RPG-ish/rhythm game

    Godless,
    here is the video I sent over PSN the other day.

    Pardon my shitty Slow Mo effect lol

  17. ncaissie:

    “Wait, you guys liked Patapon?”
    Not me

  18. dans303:

    “Patapon have been nominated PSP game of the year many times. Game is awesome.”

    @roca

    That’s why I expected the game to be good. I was sorely disappointed.

    Good Uncharted video though. I’m guessing you know the player ‘L-Roca’ and it’s some ridiculous coincedence?

    Also, nice jump at 2.37! ;)

  19. dans303:

    it’s not* some

  20. Roca.:

    ” I’m guessing you know the player ‘L-Roca’ and it’s some ridiculous coincedence?”

    “Also, nice jump at 2.37! ;)

    LMAO. Epic Jump FAILED

  21. Ivan_PSP:

    UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss no shocker here is a Sony master piece of course it was gonna wipe the floor with the rest of wannabes. Sony Bend your awesome too.

  22. Kushy:
