500k pre-orders for PS3 only? You compared to PS3, so I'm under the impression Vita didn't get many pre-orders.


Kresnik (on 05 March 2013)

The Namco Bandai rep only released one number, he didn't break it down into PS3/Vita.

I presume the comparison is because there was a previous PS3 game to compare it to. There's no previous One Piece Musou game on PSV to compare with.
