Tearaway pre-orders beating Grand Theft Auto V, The Last of Us, others at ShopTo

PlayStation Vita sales figures might not be at the levels Sony's hoping for, but Jim Ryan and co. can take comfort that a couple key PS Vita titles are in extremely high demand. (PS Vita, Sony, Tearaway)

Wow, that's surprising. Tearaway looks freaking awesome, but I wasn't expecting it to do so well with pre-orders.

Does Media Molecule being British have something to do with this?

Tearaway being 3D looks like a prototype to the 3D Game Creator game MM demoed for PS4. That game is one of my main reasons to get a PS4.

I think it has more to do with MM being a damn good dev team. They have beautiful game design and innovation.
PirateThom  +   745d ago
It's also really cheap on Shopto as well. £23.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   745d ago
Which was probably a big reason for all of the sudden preorders.
Maybe £23 is where all Vita games should be.
I know I sure wouldn't complain if that was the case.
Now to preorder! =D

I really hope this game does well so that developers can make more games for the vita.
dafegamer  +   745d ago
I'm so happy. Seriously this is the beginning of Sonys own 3D mario like franchise: Tearaway. I have no doubtz that it will be the best Vita games this year. Sorry Killzone but
Tearaway will definitely be the best this year. You guys can downvote me all you want, just wait and see ;=

I understand what you're saying, but what I don't understand is why you're saying it as if it were a fact?
dafegamer  +   745d ago
cause critics will definitely be harsh on Killzone unfortunately. I can see some delusional critics comparing it to the ps3 versions. Tearaway on the other hand is a new innovative IP
created for Vita, just like Gravity Rush last year
It will automatically get + points for being a completely new experience. It will be Uncharted golden abyss vs Gravity Rush all over again
SandWitch  +   744d ago
Yeah, those touch melees will automatically make the game 7.5 for most reviewers. Just like Uncharted
ps3vita4life  +   745d ago
Your absolutely right, there is no denying that Tearaway is the or one of the best and most exciting games coming out for the vita this year. I really can't wait to play this game.
Kingthrash360  +   745d ago
game looks good enough I was surprised about these numbers... go vita
DigitalRaptor  +   745d ago
System seller right there.
r21  +   745d ago
Actually, Killzone Mercernary just went up to spot #7 and is now ranking ahead of the TLOU, Metro, GTA V for PS3. These are pretty good signs that both titles should sell well :D I know I'll be adding up to those future numbers ;D

Media Molecule...gross. They need some redemption after that embarrassment of a presentation at the ps4 reveal.
BigStef71  +   745d ago
Are you high? There presentation was one of the best parts of the show
matrixman92  +   745d ago
*Their and absolutely no...it wasn't. Animated videos that show no representation of what they are actually doing does not make a good show. All they showed were videos (with horrible acting) of what MIGHT happen. By far the weakest point of the conference imo. Almost as bad as Sony saying there is no backwards compatibility, but hey...it MIGHT happen with cloud. People want absolutes, not hypothetical situations.

You really seem to have missed the underlining point of MM demonstration, its not so much "where is the game" its what you as a gamer will be able to do with the tool's that they make ready for you to be able to use to make your own content. that is eactly why there is over 3 million "user" created level's in LBP!

the PS4's "Play , Create , Share Model is getting an upgrade from what you will be able to do over what you were able to do with the TOOL SET THAT Media Molecule made for the PS3 user with Little Big Planet!

http://www.playstationlifes...

now look at this very concept back in 2010

Anton Mikhailov showed this very demo on the PS3!

http://blog.us.playstation....

why do you think the Move is compatable with the PS4!
dafegamer  +   745d ago
it was a tech demo, not a game. Its just a logical step for a 3D LBP game, to use those tools to create vast 3d worlds
elhebbo16  +   745d ago
Are you kidding me? to LBP fans, people that sculpt or like to 3D model, that was one of the most glorious things ever! I understand the average gamer would've thought "cool" or "meh" but the idea of creating a 3D world like they showed was truly fascinating.

You do realise they created the critically acclaimed and very popular LittleBigPlanet series? There is no reason to doubt Media Molecule whatsoever.
R_aVe_N  +   745d ago
Tearway is new and creative so it deserves to have them preorders. I hope it sells extremely well for Sony and MM. It is very good to see new IP's getting they love they should.
DivineAssault  +   745d ago
not bad.. I want this game too.. I need a good platformer for my vita.. No doubt in my mind that MM will do a great job on this game.. KZ, Dragon crown, muramasa, & FFX will be mine this yr too.. Vita has a decent line up of software for 2013.. Im sure E3 will reveal some more
RTheRebel  +   745d ago
I will buy vita when this game comes out :)
sherimae2413  +   745d ago
go iota! beat them all! ^_^
medziarz  +   745d ago
Soul Sacrifice is also the top seller at this moment.
Jihaad_cpt  +   744d ago
I just picked up my my pre-ordered copy today but I will only fire it up tomorrow I'm beat from work. I can't wait
o-Sunny-o  +   744d ago
