A Closer Look At Soul Sacrifice Delta’s Sales


Recommended Videos

Last week, Sony Computer Entertainment released Soul Sacrifice Delta in Japan for the PlayStation Vita. The game is a follow-up to the original Soul Sacrifice with new content and features, and it sold 48,786 copies in its first week.


Japanese sales tracker Media Create reports that Delta undersold the original Soul Sacrifice both in terms of retail sales as well as sell-through, pointing out that the game sold through just 58.88% of its shipment.


The original Soul Sacrifice sold 92,396 copies in its first week, and sell-through for that game was 76.32%. If you include sales of the “Double Pack,” which contained two copies of the game for a discounted price, the game’s first-week sales figure increases to 114,446 copies.


Overall, Media Create say Soul Sacrifice Delta got off to a slower start than the original. The reason for this is that the original game attracted people’s attention primarily due to a PlayStation Vita hardware promotion, shortly after the system had had its price cut.


Meanwhile, Delta suffered from a lack of media exposure and appears to be attracting only a part of the the original userbase for Soul Sacrifice.
