This holiday season Sony is trying its best to win the season by bringing in exclusive titles to their PlayStation 3 home console and PlayStation Vita handheld console. Amongst many exclusives, the latest Intellectual Property by Sony is PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The game that features a lot of characters from the universe of PlayStation games is considered a direct rip off of Nintendo’s popular super smash brothers which has all the popular characters from the Nintendo video game universe.
Sony has high hopes from this game that is being produced by a brand new studio called Super Bot. Unfortunately, so far the popularity of the game is still not quite high as the publisher may have expected it to be.
A short statistics conducted by a company reveals poor pre-order sales for the game. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is going to hit the market three months from now, but according to the report, the current pre-orders for the game has only so far reached 16,696.
Consider the fact that Sony introduced its cross by feature; the numbers are quite low and suggest that gamers aren’t impressed. The cross buy feature allows players to purchase the game on the PlayStation 3 and instantly get a free copy of it for their PlayStation Vita.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale supports cross play, which means that if you are done playing on your console, you can continue your progress on the go using your PlayStation Vita. Additionally, you can also use the PSVITA to control your characters on the screen when playing with friends on the PlayStation 3.
For the time being, if this game is compared by other exclusive games for PlayStation 3 like The Last Of Us, you will instantly see how unpopular the game is. According to official statistics, The Last of Us has already produced pre-orders of 35,265, keeping it in mind that it is still far from being released.
