PlayStation Vita Sees Lower Software Attach Rate at Retail

Hostess simulation Dream Club barely made it into the top 50.

Media Create reports today that PlayStation Vita's twenty launch titles combined for 300,000 unit sales in the system's first week of release (covering, in Vita's case, just the 17th and 18th).

The system sold around 325,000 units. This gives it an attach rate (number of games purchased per system) of 0.92. While this is lower than the 0.95 first week attach rate of the 3DS and the 1.06 first week attach rate of PSP, Media Create notes that the Vita has a download sales environment in place, and taking this into account it's likely that the actual attach rate is close to the other platforms.

Media Create shared its full top 50 for the week of the Vita's launch, allowing us to see where more Vita games placed. Here's where all the Vita games that made it into the top 50 ranked for the week:

  • 07. Hot Shots Golf 6: 61,412
  • 08. Uncharted Golden Abyss: 48,224
  • 18. Dynasty Warriors Next: 29,181
  • 19. Lord of Apocalypse: 28,742
  • 22. Disgaea 3 Return
  • 28. Ridge Racer
  • 30. Shin Kamaitachi no Yoru
  • 43. Dream Club Zero Portable
  • 44. Katamari Damacy Novita
  • 50. Shinobido 2

While Media Create does not share actual figures below the 20 mark, as an upper marker, you can use number 20's 28,406 units. As a lower marker, Media Create said that the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII-2, which placed 48, sold 10,000 units.
