Those Vita numbers are pretty awful. Sony needs some games for it. It has been very dry since launch in Japan, and realistically speaking there's nothing big on the horizon until Persona 4, Gundam, and MGS in June.

Also, KH: DDD completely bombed. The game dropped 80% this week, which is the second worst week 2 drop in franchise history. At this rate it won't even catch Birth By Sleep's first week sales.

They should just come out with KH3 already. All these side entries mean nothing to me.

Birth By Sleep, and 3D are not really side entries. Birth By Sleep might as well be called KH0, and the events of 3D supposedly directly lead into KH3.

Even though that is true, I don't care about them. I don't own any handhelds so they don't count in my mind.

The SRW is such a great series, its unfortunate it's not released here besides the OG series.

Great game but sadly really easy. Missions may be really long but doesn't matter when you wind up wiping large numbers per turn.

Nice to see Project Mirai essentially rank for the whole month. ~130K copies isn't bad...not PJD numbers, but still respectable.

And, lookie at almost 4K Xbox 360 sold. LOL. I wonder how many of those were the bundles.

Project Diva Vita should help when it's release in the summer. That's another big title.

So how can you say for them to stop "side stories" when 2/5ths of the handheld games are in fact major points in the KH universe just because you don't own the platforms they're on?

360 usually only sells around 1200, so probably around 2500 Kinect Star Wars bundles. Guess Japan has some dedicated Star Wars fans coming out. Laughing
