Tearaway pre-orders beating Grand Theft Auto V, The Last of Us, others at ShopTo

PlayStation Vita sales figures might not be at the levels Sony’s hoping for, but Jim Ryan and co. can take comfort that a couple key PS Vita titles are in extremely high demand.

The first is Tearaway, a darling platformer from Media Molecule of LittleBigPlanet fame. The Guildford-based studio’s PS Vita exclusive is at the top of’s list of top pre-orders, besting Grand Theft Auto V, the Wii U port of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and even The Last of Us. Further down the list, another PS Vita title–Killzone Mercenary–is holding fast at #9.

Earlier this year, I played Killzone Mercenary and Tearaway at a press event in Hollywood. You can read my previews of each, and a bunch of exclusive news, using the links below.
