Is that good? Hopefully, if so good for them. I am one of the people who bought it.

Still playing it.

Lots of Vita owners buy digital copies of Vita games,obviously these are just the numbers for the physical ones,I think all is good.
himdeel  +   533d ago
All of the games on my Vita are digital copies. Im only limited by the 32 gig card. Wish there was a 96 gig card.

Europe release still to come as well, pity it is digital release only but thats better than not coming at all.
shammgod  +   533d ago
Exactly. Shipping 250K is excellent when I would say half of the vita owners buy digital. I bought this digital.

i have the physical copy, love the game very challenging.

How is it ? If I ever get a Vita, it's one of the games that interest me.
profgerbik  +   533d ago
It is a lot of fun I would recommend to pick it up but with Soul Sacrifice and DOA 5+ coming to the Vita next month and April I would hold off.

I mean if you have the money to blow it is a good monster hunting game to add to the collection but if you are tight on money and planned on getting anything else soon I would just be patient.

As much as I love it I just probably won't play it much once Soul Sacrifice is out.

It's good for Japan, yes.

Generally speaking, anything over 100K is considered a hit, so 250K physical only is very good for a game like this.

Combined with the digital purchases (lots of PS Vita owners buy their games digital)I think the game has done really good considering the install base,good job !

And the game deserves even more,it's a great game,I jump into it from time to time just doing missions and fighting huge bosses :D !

Got numbers?
I have never purchased a full retail game of PSN (or marketplace) as they cost more than getting them on disc!
DarkHeroZX  +   533d ago
lol they cost about the same. The reason disc are seemingly cheaper is because of used prices, and the retailer's ability to change the price at any time while games listed on PSN aren't as flexible. Buying vita games on PSN is actually 10% cheaper than buying physical plus the speed of the micro card is faster then the physical cart. And backing your digital games on your PC and PS3 is easy so you don't have to completely re-download the game all over again to make space for other games.
Studio-YaMi  +   533d ago
it's common sense(no pun intended) that when you see such a large demand for 32GB cards for PSVita you'll know how many people actually buy their games digitally.

I only have 3 games that are hard copies and over 10 titles that are digital copies,I just bought a new 32GB card for the games coming later this year.

Don't have official numbers though,sorry ..

It's having sex with the Japanese version!
MasterCornholio  +   534d ago
Not bad given the install base.
oONinjavitiSOo  +   533d ago
Good numbers for an awesome game! I really like the fact that they are making several action rpgs for the vita! Soul sacrifice, toukiden, pso2, and gods eater 2 just to name a few. Keep them coming sony!
Fullmetalevolust  +   533d ago
such great news for the vita and ragnarok odyssey, it was a day one purchase for me and I've poured so many hours into it, and it's always a joy to boot it up and go on quests with others. It's well done and effortless. Let's hope for a sequel and more JRPGs...I hope PSO2 will come sooner than later.
jujubee88  +   533d ago
Yes!
I second the notion of an RO sequel and PSO2 localization. :D

I am stuck at chapter 10 can't find player to play with.

Well, I'm pretty beast so add BlacZeroZX. I beat all the extra quest on my own.
mt  +   532d ago
I tried two extra levels I almost spend half hour for each extra level that is too much for me I know I could beat them but it would take me sometime.
i gotta admit you are a beast if you beat them all alone.
DarkHeroZX  +   532d ago
Just send me an add. Though I must warn you, multi-player increases the lvl of difficulty drastically so beware!
Skate-AK  +   533d ago
Well they sold it to the stores to it is sold.
BuffMordecai  +   533d ago
I really hope Sony brings out a 64 gb card this year, I'm completely out of room.
Tei777  +   533d ago
Vita owners want JRPGS, somone please bring them.
deadfrag  +   533d ago

actually shipped is sold for the company at least they "Sell" it to the retailers so technically is sold XD
Knushwood Butt  +   533d ago
@ R_aVe_N

Yeah, I don't know why that's so difficult for some people to figure out.

From the publisher's point of view, it doesn't matter if a publisher ships a million games, and not a single one is sold to an end consumer. They have already made the sale.

The retailers would be pissed though!

ive been playing since day one, i still play it everyday, there is so much cool armor and weapons and cards that are rare and then leveling them up is a whole other story, its got its flaws but its one of the funnest games on the vita.
