Phantasy Star Nova sells 107k on launch

The new Media Create chart is out and shows good moves for the Vita, with a host of new games hitting the chart, but only Phantasy Star Nova from Sega and Tri-Ace really making an impact.

Fate/Hollow Ataraxia  did pretty well with 50,000 (Famitsu has it at 66k, which is quite an anomalous gap) but NIS's Great Edo BlackSmith lags well behind the pack with a mere 11,000 sales. Even then, PS Nova's sales are well down (by two-thirds) on anything from the series' past PSP performance, although Famitsu lists it as selling 60-80% of stock, so perhaps Sega weren't that confident anyway.

On the hardware front, the Vita rockets up to 29,000, with even Vita TV getting a boost, thanks to the PSNova limited editions. However, its way, way down on last year's stellar numbers and still miles behind all the new 3DS hardware.
