Having reached the sea cliffs on their tiny island in Patapon 1, the Patapons endless search for Earthend forces them to venture the high seas, where they battle both tempests and sea monsters of every kind. After a blood curdling battle with a giant sea beast, the Patapons’ ship crashes on the shores of a strange land and even stranger inhabitants. Who are these masked creatures that call themselves the Karmens and why are they trying to stop the Patapons from reaching Earthend? The mystery and adventures continue as the Patapons fight to reach their destiny in Patapon 2!

This is pretty undertracked. Media Create has it at 123,455 as of 2010.

These sales are a fucking disgrace

If only Japan would buy something unique as opposed to gundam and pokemon for the billionth time

I wonder how things went in America as physical containers were sold in stores (they had vouchers in them but trackable nonetheless)

I'm totally against DL-only games for the same reasons MonstaMack mentioned. Import one from the UK or Australia, they were released on disc the proper way.

It looks like Sony is going to stick with going PSN only for the US. A very bad move for Gamestop and people who are against DRM/Download only. So we will never know the true sales of this format unless Sony changes their mind. I was interested in this title but now that it's download only I'm going to have to pass for many reasons: a) I can't re-sell this game or trade it in for store credit b) By supporting this product it tells Sony I am ok with DRM and c) I don't feel like dedicating any of my memory card space for this game, even if I can re-download it. Shame on Sony and hope they change their mind down the road by releasing a UMD version in the US.
