PS Vita’s Escape Plan wins download vote, gamers may disagree

PS Vita owners may be crying out for some new games to play, but in the meantime Sony has just revealed what the number one downloaded game was for the system’s first month on sale.

You may be surprised to hear that the game that has come out on top is none other than the unique Escape Plan game, developed by Fun Bits Interactive and published by Sony as well.

The game is certainly unique as well, as the game is completely in monochrome, features a classical soundtrack and requires players to complete an amusing set of puzzles within levels using two fun loving characters called Lil and Laarg.

While the game is undoubtedly fun to play, we’re a little surprised that Uncharted: Golden Abyss was nowhere to be seen in the top three. In the list of the top ten games downloaded in the Vita’s first month on sale, Uncharted could only manage 7th place, which is perhaps a bit worrying for Sony considering that Uncharted was initially perceived as being the Vita’s stand out game at launch.

Being trumped by the likes of Escape Plan, a much smaller scale game is perhaps an indication that Sony still has a lot of work to do if they are going to win fans over with their own-studio developed exclusives. We can’t help but feel that a lack of multiplayer is partly to blame why Uncharted: Golden Abyss didn’t fair so well.

Another surprising omission from the top three games is Rayman Origins, which came in at 6th place and is easily our favorite game on the Vita so far. Yes it is a port of the existing console game, but the game truly looks spectacular on that glorious 5-inch OLED display, so we expected the game to fair a little better than that.

This is just a download chart remember though and doesn’t take into account retail sales. Would Escape Plan be top of your list as well, or do you agree with us that Rayman Origins should have been placed higher?
