    So basically Killzone managed to earn IGN’s Best Vita game of 2013 but still couldn’t hit the 500k mark? It’s the best goddamn FPS game for the handheld! Also, Assassins Creed Liberation should have received the golden prize, I read somewhere it sold 600k copies! The Vita really needs a lot of adopters, I see.

    • Safeer Humayoon

      770k copies for assassins creed liberation actually.
