God Eater 2 Sells Through 76% Of Shipment On PS Vita

By Ishaan . November 22, 2013 . 11:31am

Last week, Namco Bandai Games released God Eater 2 in Japan, and the PlayStation Vita and PSP game sold a combined total of nearly 380,000 copies in its first week.

 

266,326 of those copies were sold on the Vita, and sales tracker Media Create reports that this represents a 75.86% sell-through for the Vita version of the game. Meanwhile, the PSP version sold 112,024 copies with a 63.29% sell-through.

 

Excellent opening sales for the game—and far ahead of the original God Eater. Considering that there don’t appear to be any ongoing supply shortages , it should be interesting to see God Eater 2 holds up over the next several weeks.

    • FlyingPony

    • InfectedAI

      And an extra cheer for hope of an online play patch.

      • Romancer Ecclesia

        wait, wait, wait… there’s no online play yet? o_O

        • Guest

          PSP can use Ad-hoc Party, the Vita version can’t do squat.

          • Romancer Ecclesia

            Dear god I wonder what’s on their minds when they designed the game like that =/

    • Aristides

      We all want this localized Namco, make some ore money over here!

    • Ric Vazquez

      Amen brother, *high five*

  • malek86

    So in other words, they shipped 350k units of the PSV version and 180k units of the PSP version. Not bad. I guess this time the PSV version’s legs will hold up better than Toukiden, since the PSP is on its way out. This was its swan song, really.

    Looks like the fans were really hungry!

  • TheExile285

    Good for GE2 :D

    A week later and still no GE2 for this Exile ;_;

    Free Shipping without tracking was such a dumb idea on my part :(

    • xAtKx

      Baka! Baka!

      Hope you get it soon though.

    • Curan_Altea

      Digital version was a great idea on my part~

      • TheExile285

        I have too many US DD PSV games (+ PS Plus) for long-term account switching to be an option for me lol

        Also, you don’t get a box so HA! :P

        • Vsin

          Be like me and have 2 Vitas. Then again, one of them is a recording Vita that I have to constantly switch PSNs on…

          • TheExile285

            If I could have afforded the GE2 Vita, I would have bought that and set it to my Japanese account.

            I think I’m just gonna get a Vita TV for imports.

        • Arcana Wiz

          SO gorgeous…. ;_;

    • JuhRo

      I did that with my copy of Tales of Hearts R…. freaked out at the 2nd week point… every single day until Monday hit of the third week and I saw it sitting at my desk (I have stuff delivered to work)

      • TheExile285

        Well that’s reassuring lol. Hopefully it’ll be here soon.

  • Ryujin

    Good to see they’re off to a strong start. Judging from the demo, this is one of those games that really understands what a sequel needs to be. It’s a natural evolution that adds new stuff but stays true to what people liked about the original.

    I really hope they localize it, but chances are I’ll have run out of patience and imported it before that happens.

  • Lemski07

    Im included in those sales. because I got Impatient. but I dont regret it. the game became 200% more enjoyable than burst because of the imporvements. and also there are wiki’s that made the game understandable except the story <,,<.

    • LBattle0819

      I know right, I’ve been playing through missions on the prelude demo and the mission I picked, I thought they were just gonna throw more kougous at me like the first did but no, I got hit by these things…..

      • TheExile285

        DAT mecha Vajra :P

        • LBattle0819

          I thought it was an alien o.O

        • Nina

          …How the hell does it even look like a Vajra? Does it have the Vajra’s distinguishable tiger-like features? :x It’s just a normal Yaksha. A Yaksha-Raja has claws.

          • LBattle0819

            did you click “see more”?

          • Nina

            Nope, my bad. Yeah, Ravana bears some similarities with its cousin. Just as annoying to fight too.

      • Ni ~UNREAL BLACK THINGS~

        I’m one of the 380k people too.

        Yaksha Raja type gunner is really easy to kill.

        Ravana goes down fast with Freeze elemental attacks.
        i’m still on chapter 3 since i didn’t had time really play the game. I just want to make kick Marduck ass.
        And soloing is probably going to be a pain in the near future since bosses summon others little aragami and run away when they are starting to die

    This is sounding good for localization =^_^=

    • Renaldi Saputra

      doubt it..
      I heard God Eater Burst didn’t do well in US.. and you know Namdai that if one of their games wasn’t successful, then they likely won’t bring the sequel to the stateside.. also from the hints Namdai announced to us some weeks ago, there’s no clue about GE2

      but who knows if they will make some surprises too, lately they’ve been being more focus into Jump series related games

  • Edmund Ng

    got the famitsu dx limited edition, shot glass is cool, poster came in damaged which sucks, complained to company i bought from but so far no reply, calender is stellar and stuff doll is kind of weird. Game is absolutely awesome. Character development and background stories too, not just those kinds of game where, here’s a monster, go hunt it down.

  • jujubee88

    Over that 3/4′s mark. Nioce!

  • Raltrios

    Such selling. So wow. Much want.
