    Studio not closing, but entering its 'next chapter.'


    Sony has cut ties with SuperBot Entertainment, just days after the development studio laid off a number of its staff.

    It looks like Sony has ended its working agreement with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale creators SuperBot Entertainment.

    However, seems that the studio won't close (for now):

    Just a few days ago, Sony confirmed that an unknown number of SuperBot Entertainment staff were laid off, but assured that both “the studio and SCEA remain committed to supporting PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale post launch”...

      Based on rumors I am hearing the game cleared less than 500K units world wide between both platforms. The Vita game from what I heard in the same rumor only managed about 50K units sold for both versions (Digital and Physical versions.)

      How true this all is, I don't know, I mean the 50K units for the Vita versions sounds plausible but that leaves 450K units for the PS3 version so that's not too bad is it? Sure its not a mega hit and Sony probably spent any profits it made advertising it (One of the few Sony adverts I have seen in a while was for this game.)
