The PS Vita sold 321,407 units in its first two days in sale in Japan... so which games were the most popular?

According to Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida, the two most pre-ordered games on the new handheld console were Everybody's Golf (also known as Hot Shots Golf in the US) and Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Both are titles made by WorldWide Studios.

    Not bad. Enough to keep me occupied for the inevitable post-launch drought.

    nothing there really interests me.
    My wallet will like me until Final Fantasy X remake comes out :P

      I was under the impression that the Vita would play the PS Classics off the PSN Store?

    - Niconico – Niconico (Dwango)

    Just a note, that's not a game. It's a portal into the niconico douga video site, pretty much a Japanese youtube.

    Luckily by the time the system launches for us in February, the launch lineup is likely to be much bigger. Though on the other hand there's stuff here which obviously won't make the jump to english - Dream C Club for example, a hostess bar simulator doesn't seem like it'd have much of a market. :P


    I'll get it when a big title hits it that I'm after.

    Ummm..... 2013 line up? Or 2012 line up? If 2013 - going to be waiting a while.....

      It said up to 2013, in other words, they already have a schedule of what games will come out between 2012-2013

    i dont like this lineup at all. there's nothing i'd buy. all i'd get is the FFX remake and uncharted.

    I hope Blazblue launches with the Vita in Aus.

    Na na, na na na na na na na na, Katamari Damacy!

    I know some people don't like this line up but keep in mind it's the Japanese one. When Feb comes around the rest of us will have a different line up, we'll have Gravity Daze/Rush and Escape Plan for our launch. I'll be getting those along with Uncharted
