Attach rate for Vita is really good.

Never the less the attach rate for such a small title is amazing :-) Plus the fact that according to Ubi, the retail/download attach rate can go as high as 25%, it seems that the Vita could have a potentially strong online storefront in the near future ;-)

"Also the PlayStation 3 has been downloaded 790,000 times." I didn't know I could download a PS3!

Doesn't matter. It's the same price as retail, but you can't trade it in. :p

I downloaded this on my Vita yesterday, and before I knew it, I'd played for 7 hours straight, lol. It's actually really great and VERY addictive!

Same here!! Not happy with the over-priced DLCs though... >_>
I mean I would buy heaps had they had fair pricing.

It's free and much better on Vita than on any mobile or tablet thanks to the back screen. It's a nice little time eater, but I hope for bigger games to come to Vita

A very fun game and it is free. Probably going to buy some DLC to support them.

This game is amazing, I have it on both PS3 and Vita. I have purchased the DLC on Vita that gives me double coins. I think it's nice to show them some support for a well done game.

It is a free game isn it?

This bodes well for Phantasy Star Online 2 on PS Vita. I believe Sega will have a hit on their hands.

I'm glad to see it's being downloaded so much. It's actually a lot of fun. People can pay for coins in the game. I can imagine a few people paying for that at least.

Not familiar with this game. How do they make their money? DLC?

Micro transactions. Coins to buy in game unlocks and so forth.

Sad the best selling game in vita is free. Sony is going to have to step things up. If not they may just release a lot of mini and free games and not any AAA $40 games.

It is not the best selling game on the Vita.
