Escape Plan is Vita's top download

Uncharted: Golden Abyss was the top-selling Vita game at retail last month, when the system debuted in the States. But, with Vita games all available on PlayStation Network as well, was Uncharted able to repeat that feat on the PlayStation Store?
It appears not. Perhaps the $45 price tag scared gamers away from the digital version. Maybe the sizable 4GB download hindered its sales (given the cost of memory cards)? Regardless, the top-selling Vita game in February was the black and white puzzle game, Escape Plan.
The top 10 PSN sales chart shows where Escape Plan landed:
- 1. The Simpsons Arcade Game (PS3)
- 2. Gotham City Imposters (PS3)
- 3. The House of the Dead 3 (PS3)
- 4. Escape Plan (Vita)
- 5. Shank 2 (PS3)
- 6. NFL Blitz (PS3)
- 7. Super Stardust Delta (Vita)
- 8. Angry Birds (PS3/PSP)
- 9. Super Stardust Delta: Interstellar Bundle (Vita)
- 10. Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition (PS3)
Unfortunately for the Vita, Super Stardust Delta was the only other handheld game that managed to crack the top 10. Given the PS3's significantly larger install base, it shouldn't be too surprising that PS3 games--like the free for PlayStation Plus Simpsons Arcade game--would dominate the list. Perhaps Sony's new handheld will make a more prominent showing next month?
