    Good sales for God Eater 2 and Vita this week =)

  • Dorhen

    ~380k for God Eater 2, nice :o

  • shogunknight

    Holy Shit, tis a sony week. Good Debut for the Vita TV and Great numbers on God Eater 2. Localize-uh as fast as fussibruu

    • Renaldi Saputra

      recently Namdai only focus on localizing Jump series related games and Tales series.. Hopefully this and Decode will be their next announcement of localization

  • TheExile285

    About 380k for GE2! Nice ^_^

  • $48552495

    Bandai better bring GE2 stateside if they want more money.

    • TetsuyaHikari

      They just might do it too. The trophies are in English for some reason, so there might be something to that. Just something I noticed when playing the game, but… It can’t be a bad thing for people hoping for a localization, right?

      Still, I’d be cautiously optimistic. You never know what NBGI is going to do when it comes to localizing JP games.

    • Kevadu

      The lack of online multiplayer makes it kind of useless for most people in the west. Local ad-hoc just doesn’t cut it.

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Ad-hoc party says “hi”

        • Kevadu

          Ad-hoc party is beter than nothing, I suppose, but it’s still clumsy, awkward, and unreliable. And tying an important piece of fuctionality of a *portable* game to a PS3 system is not a great solution by any measure.

          • TetsuyaHikari

            Clumsy, awkward, and unreliable? Really? Yeah, no. There are still a TON of lobbies that are overcrowded from people still playing Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and now God Eater 2. It sounds more like you have a personal issue with it, honestly.

            Now, the North American version of Ad-hoc party unfortunately never took off, so it’s pretty empty if you go check, but the JP version is still strong and there are multiple worlds with full lobbies for games. I’d hardly think the players using it would consider the app to be “clumsy, awkward, and unreliable” :p

            If you’re not comfortable with that, just use your PC and XLink Kai instead *shrugs*

            • Budgiecat


              Listen, Vita has fawkin Wifi 3G built in…..for what purpose then? Whats the point if devs are too lazy to implement it…
              Japanese players use it because…..what other choice do they have?
              Western players don’t use it because…well if they’re home they’d rather play on their consoles duh.

              Infrastructure with Wifi 3G

              • TetsuyaHikari

                Listen. Not every game needs online play to be good. Just because something has an internet connection doesn’t mean it needs to be used.

                Ad-hoc party does a fine job at what it does and there’s no reason to complain about lack of online play if you use it. You can still join parties and play the game normally anyway, so what’s the problem? Stop trying to make a big deal out of something that isn’t there.

                • Budgiecat

                  Listen…these games pride themselves on multiplayer..thats the strength of the game design. Itd be like saying don’t team up with people in FF XIV…like…thats encouraged yo…thats the nature of the game. And for the development team to rest on their design laurels and not make use of a useful design feature in the Vita such as 3G wifi that can only help the MP element, just because ‘lol adhoc party’ (which is incredibly stupid for a handheld…its a goddamn HANDHELD…the point of it is freedom from being stuck at home to play attached to cables ….lol XLink Kai? Might as well make the game for PS3/PS4 then)
                  So yeah…they lazily do not implement it because ‘lol Japanese kids and teens herpaderp meet up at the parks and schools to play just like in all the happy go lucky marketing ads… NO. Implement proper game design so that we can make proper use of all the system offers

                  Viable options

                  Damn….. remember being pissed off at lack of Wifi back when the FIRST Dissidia game came out lol.

                  Now we have a MORE POWERFUL handheld…the Vita..and damn developers STILL can’t be bothered to make proper wifi connection

                  Meanwhile I can play people online on a freakin Nintendo DS playing Mario Kart, Jump! Ultimate Stars, and Bleach. How crazy is that…
                  and lets not get started on iOS….even some of the garbage-iest games on it has wifi play……wut….

                  • TetsuyaHikari

                    >not acknowledging ad-hoc play as multiplayer and only considers ‘online play’ as the only multiplayer option for “these games”

                    You don’t even know, man. I’m just done. Let me know when you get your head out of your ass and you’re ready to stop spewing shit, bro.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Hey! Don’t talk to me that way. I have feelings…

                      Anyways, ad-hoc <<<<<< Wifi. Done deal. This isnt even a debate. It's like factoid factizoid.

                      If I'm in a cafe or store with WiFi hotspot, why the hell can't I play a MP game like this with wifi that emphasizes MP?? That doesn't even make sense!

                      Would you hook up cables to your iPhone to play online? Lol no the idea of that is ludicrous. A smartphone is a wireless HANDHELD device. A Vita is a wireless HANDHELD device. WIRELESS bro.
                      WITH Wifi 3G. That Namco and others are not taking advantage of once again.

                      So why does Vita get a pass? When its like 4x more powerful than a PSP that was designed 8 years ago??

                      Shouldn't the technology be getting BETTER, not worse?

                    • TetsuyaHikari

                      Alright, ya know what? Start a new discussion in the Open Forum to bitch about why the PS3 doesn’t have screenshot support and custom soundtracks for every single game despite the hardware actually being capable of doing it (it’s in the firmware for crying out loud).

                      Wireless or not, Japan obviously doesn’t have an issue with connecting to local players to play via Ad-hoc since it’s essentially multiplayer anyway, so again… What’s the problem? If you’re NOT around people, then just use your console and Ad-hoc party or your PC and Xlink Kai.

                      No no no, instead… You’d rather bitch about it than do something. I bet if you had it your way, it wouldn’t get Ad-hoc play at all since that’s not taking “full advantage” of the hardware. I believe the only thing around here that’s not being used to its full advantage is your brain, man.

                      Ad-hoc play really isn’t a problem and the game doesn’t NEED to run on its wireless connection to be played and/or enjoyed with other people. I bet you’re the kind of guy that complains when a company only adds offline multiplayer to a game because you don’t have any friends to play the game with, so it’s obviously the company’s fault that they aren’t taking “advantage” of the hardware. Just relax already, geez.

                    • Budgiecat

                      THAT’s JUST IT.

                      Japan Japan Japan

                      These stupid companies with their Galapagos syndrome mentality refusing to think outside the economy box they boxed themselves in while they’re hemorraging money is their own downfall.
                      YES take advantage of what the systems have. They are there for a reason. They are tools to help you entice buyers to want to buy your product. Stop thinking fawkin SMALL by releasing “In Japan only” out some archaic misplaced Nationalistic Xenophobe pride.
                      “Oh we don’t have to bother to add Wifi support..Japanese kids just meet up at playgrounds to play anyway” wtf kinda small minded mentality is that? Like I smartphone game has local multi play only.
                      Local multiplay is something that GAMEBOY and GBA did back in the day. GET WITH THE TIMES.
                      Make it appeasing to a Global market.

                      Surely Call of Duty isn’t hurting for many now is it.
                      Times are changing and these tradionalist old men CEO’s with their backwards ass thinking need to get with the times because Japanese gaming is in a mess right now.

                      And lol at your analogies. “Screenshot support and custom music” aren’t integral parts of multiplayer gameplay. Playing online is.

                      And the benefit of a wireless handheld should be that it can be played WIRELESS both local multiplay and via WiFi. Thats what a smartphone does….why should a Vita be inferior? Its a gaming system! A phone is still a phone! Why is it beating handhelds??
                      Remember when you needed a cable just to play someone in MP with the Gameboy and GBA? Yeah this isn’t really that much better lol….

                    • TetsuyaHikari

                      Japanese gaming is a mess right now?

                      HA HA

                      OH WOW

                      >Japanese gaming is a mess
                      >real talk

                      So fucking done. I’m out. I can’t do this any more.

                    • Budgiecat

                      yay I win

        • Budgiecat

          that sucks

      • coax

        Maybe you should get some actual friends to play with instead of just random people online.

      • Elvick

        Don’t most of the ones that end up coming to NA get online in a patch? I remember Ragnarok Odyssey did, I can’t remember if SS launched with online or not (in Japan).

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Demmm GE2 salesss. Daayuummm

    • Budgiecat

      JoJo 400K first week.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        but it drastically went down.. I expect GE2 sales will be rather constant for 2-3 weeks like toukiden

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        What does Jojo have to do with GE2?

      • TetsuyaHikari

        JoJo sold on its name alone. GE2 is selling because it’s a good game. While the series itself has garnered excellent recognition, I definitely don’t think GE2 sold on its name alone. There’s more to it than that.

        JoJo just got good sales because, well… It’s JoJo, lol.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          and jojo fell fast off the list due to all the limitation bullshit aswell.

          • TetsuyaHikari

            Yeah, lol. At least GE2 sold on its own merits. Well, what I mean is… It didn’t piggyback on the franchise name in hopes of selling more copies. Maybe it will get to that point further down the line, but right now… It’s doing pretty well for itself even living in the shadow of MH.

            • Budgiecat

              It IS a sequel

              • TetsuyaHikari

                Okay? God Eater still isn’t what I’d consider a ‘household name’ though. It hasn’t been around long enough to simply sell on its name alone like Monster Hunter, Final Fantasy, etc.

                I believe a lot of these sales were simply from people, much like myself, that enjoyed God Eater and God Eater Burst. Yes, it is a sequel, but I don’t see how that has to do with anything, honestly. It’s not like this is the 7th game in its franchise or something, then you’d actually be onto something here.

                • Budgiecat

                  Its the only worthy competitor to MonHun

                  what else is there? Ragnoroko Odyssey? Fairy Tail? Toriko Gourmet Battle? Toukiden? Soul Sacrifice? THey’re okay but not in the league..

                  • TetsuyaHikari

                    Actually, Soul Sacrifice is more popular than GE, I’d say. Hell, Ad-hoc party even has a specific page for it along with MHFU. I love GE, but I hear SS being talked about a LOT more.

                    • Budgiecat

                      I dont know why these games are using Adhoc party over wifi….it’s just stupid as all hell….they’re handhelds goddamn it act like a freakin handheld. This aint the 90’s anymore…

                    • TetsuyaHikari

                      You don’t HAVE to use Ad-hoc party, it’s just an option. Good grief. If you’re out and about, simply connect to multiplayer with the built-in Ad-hoc feature and play with locals.

                      Stop making this a BIG DEEEEEEEEEEEEAL.

                    • Budgiecat

                      Can I use Wifi 3G? No?

                      Oh I didn’t know it was 2003 and we were all still playing on our GBA’s I coulda sworn it was 2013 and we had the technology to do so…wireless…

        • Budgiecat

          Yeah well how come JoJo Golden Wind, JoJo Phantom Blood, and JoJo HD didn’t sell as well huh? Huh?? Yeah ….thought so..

          200K isn’t anything to jump up n down for. Now one million….then thats amazing to me

          • TetsuyaHikari

            It didn’t have as much advertising behind it.


            • TetsuyaHikari

              Oh and your example is subjective. 200k sales for a game that isn’t as well known as say… Grand Theft Auto, yeah. Excuse me for being more impressed with these sales as opposed to the next cookie-cutter, regurgitated shit we’ve seen for the past 10 years, game releasing its 29847219852634982nd installment that’s pretty much a copy-paste of its predecessor.

              • Budgiecat

                lol I’m not comparing it to GTA cmon. I’m just saying 200k sales is poop these days. Japanese gaming market is shrinking; seems less people are willing to play games there unless its either on a smartphone or a long running series. It’s probably like….why play GE2 when I can play MH4? I’d be impressed if people COULD break from their cookie cutter buying mentality yes, but until that actually happens…200K?


                • TetsuyaHikari

                  Something tells me your standards are incredibly high if you’re so quick to scoff at 200k for this title (200k within the first week no less). I’m sorry you feel that every game must be a blockbuster hit and selling millions of copies or something, but I’d say GE2 hitting around 200k in the first week is pretty good, all things considered.

                  • Budgiecat

                    We all know games like these taper off after the 2nd week. Japanese gamers buy their games first week out mostly…

            • Budgiecat

              Everybody knows JoJo in Japan

              Or did you mean God Eater?

              • TetsuyaHikari

                Doesn’t matter. The latest Hokuto no Ken game for PS3 was a pachislot title, but despite Hokuto no Ken’s popularity in Japan, it didn’t sell as well as Hokuto Musou or Shin Hokuto Musou because… Here it comes… You guessed it!


                • Budgiecat

                  lol pachislot sucks bro….

      • Rubeus

        Jojo price crashed in the Japanese used game market, it is only 1900 yen used.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        GE2 sold just under 400k with PSP/Vita combined, and it will have much better legs than that game.

  • Snipyro12

    Daaaaamn. PS Vita combined total of almost 90k this week. A large majority thanks to God Eater 2!

  • SuperLuigi

    Good job sony! This is crazy

  • Articuno76

    Come on Sony, create some momentum and keep the hardware selling.

  • TetsuyaHikari

    God Eater 2 deserves those sales. It’s a damn good game~

  • Magnumsally

    Next week 3ds will be on top for sure

    Vita TV basically did not do all that great at retail.

    God Eater is a beast

  • Alkhan

    Did New Atelier Rorona come out this last week or does it come out tomorrow? It would really suck if it came out last week and didn’t chart…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s tomorrow

      • Alkhan

        That’s great news. I expect it to at least open up with 25-30k and push to about 60-70k over the weeks. I hope it beats my expectations though, really looking forward to the game.

    • fyi1191

      Didn’t chart? It’s impossible.

  • Budgiecat

    PS Vita sales……proof Japanese don’t care about gaming on their home TV’s with their handhelds..

    God Eater 2… yeah well….no where near the sales of Jojo and of course MH4…

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      Why do you…have…to…look at….things…so…negative…wow…

      • Leon_Tekashi

        At this point, it’s best to ignore him and follow your own thoughts.

        • Budgiecat

          No thats possibly the worst idea…embrace your dreams…

      • Luna Kazemaru

        idk why you replied to him lol

    • Renaldi Saputra

      please, God Eater is still young series not like MH.. but it deserves to be called MH’s rival

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Comparing GE to a series that’s been around since the 80’s (JoJo) and MH? Dude… GE is still a baby compared to MH, but that certainly doesn’t make it a bad game. Geez.

      • MrFinalgamer

        it’s basically a baby prodigy

        • Budgiecat

          No that would be Kaiju Busters

          • JonathanisPrimus

            Didn’t Kaiju Busters completely bomb on DS?

            • Budgiecat

              Yes thats why its a stillbirth lol

    • Lelouch Vi Britannia

      that is true Budgiecat about Japanese gamers not caring so much about console games.We all know its quite different here in America where there are more than enough console gamers like me.

    • LordKaiser

      God’s Eater started on PSP so is logical that the sequel goes there. Now if it was a console series going to portables like Valkyria Chronicles then I’ll give you the reason.

      • TetsuyaHikari

        I think you mean it started on PSP :p

        • LordKaiser


    • Budgiecat

      oh my gawd the downvotes….

      • TheBlackRabbit

        lol looks like it burns my friend….need some water? :D

        • Budgiecat

          Yes please thanks…just make sure it’s not Mexican water…

          • TheBlackRabbit

            *Hands blue mountain water* :D

    • Guest

      I’ll vote you up mate.

      Actually, while I’m here, are you still in on the Kickstarter? We haven’t it in a few days.

    • McPoo

      Ugh, Disqus is so shit on my iPad, I can’t edit messages for some reason. Anyway, I’ve popped you a cheeky little up vote ;)

      You still up for the Kickstarter? We’ve not had chance to discuss it for a few days now, just wanna check we’re still on the same page.

      • Budgiecat

        I dunno….those downvotes took away 70% of my ki power….

        • McPoo

          Hey dude,

          Has your ki power regenerated yet? I made the mistake of posting about the kickstarter on this website and now I’m worried someone else might steal the idea. We need to get the project moving NOW, so are you in or are you out?

          Just think, with some hard work and dedication, we could have a good Final Fantasy on our hands!

          McPoo. xox

      • DrForbidden

        It’s not just your iPad, really. It’s the same with mine. Constant crashing of Safari when trying to browse or post. Disqus appears to be shit on iPads in general…

  • Renaldi Saputra

    God Eater 2 = Toukiden at the sales I expect..
    btw Medarot needs more love

    cheap system sells, lets hope the vita and vita tv sales puiks up so we can have get more quality titles for to look forward to.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    hope GE2 picks up more sales vastly improved on alot of thing since burst and is fun as hell. It earned those sales.

  • bldudas

    Nice Vita numbers game and handheld wise.

    • Mar Mar

      Honestly I never expected PS Vita TV to sell this great. Now I’ll go pat and hug my Vita =)

  • RSene

    So, what was the 3DS record leading the Japan charts? 5 milleniums? :)

    • Lelouch Vi Britannia


    • Rogerio Ap Silva de Andrade

      Still leading the handheld market by a laaaaaarge margin. This is only the second time since launch that Vita outsold 3ds… and even by a very small margin

  • MrFinalgamer

    wow amazing sales for GE hope we get it soon (if we got conception 2, we better get this!) also nice to see such big sales for Vita! about time the 3DS got beat XD

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s different.. God Eater 2 is Namco Bandai.. you just don’t know how Namco Bandai is.. just don’t compare with Conception II’s localization by Atlus USA, they’re so kind

  • 武神水樹

    Japan loves Call of Duty, blew away BF4 sales

    • Budgiecat

      They probably see “Square-Enix” on the cover and feel relieved its not EA

      • DrForbidden

        Honestly, most people across the world probably feel the same way…

  • Spectacularity

    Yay~ I really want God Eater 2 on vita, stuck playing it on the psp. ;(

    • Heavenly_King

      buy a Vita ;)

      • Spectacularity

        I’m planning on it ^w^

  • artemisthemp

    Imagine the Western sales of PS Vita TV and God Eater 2

  • Eclipse

    Nice, those sales for God Eater 2 are highly deserved.

    Well done, Shift <3

  • Bobby Jennings

    This is great. Vita’s picking up and God Eater sold nicely!

  • AdamBoy64

    Nice start for Vita TV. And a good week for the regular Vita.
    That’s good to see.

    Kind of surprised to see CoD up so high.

  • Gariya

    Aaaaaand as expected, Ishaan from Siliconera downplayed Vita’s sales. Only Nintendo is allowed to thrive according to him, apparently.

    • Elvick

      That’s why I stopped going there awhile ago.

      • Gariya

        Siliconera itself isn’t a bad site. I check both Sili and Gematsu on a daily basis. It’s just Ishaan that I’m not really fond of.

  • Elvick

    Glad that the PS Vita version of GE2 sold over twice as much as the PSP version. :D

    I bet Pro Evolution Soccer would sell really well on PS Vita. Shame it gets almost no sports games.

    Glad to see PS Vita selling well and nice sales for PS Vita TV. Western release now Sony…
