This year was pretty bad, there were simply no heavy hitters. TM could've done better but was a bit of a disaster and we have yet to see long term sales for PSAS, but I doubt they'll be too spectacular.
GT5 has sold much more this year than those games.
Next year with TLOU, GoW:A and Beyond should be much better.
No troll is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate trolls, I train people. I am the Troll Whisperer.
Since the second place for 1st party games this year goes to Starhawk with 19k LT, I guess it's a MAJOR hit there. There's also Hot Shots Golf this year (which will probably take the first place from TJ) but it's also on Vita.
Unfortunately some of our first party games, namely the 4 you mentioned, get almost no advertisement and publicity. Sony seems content on showing endless ads on Black ops: declassified right now, which bugs me. I wish they would support the games that are actually good.

Ya this was a very bad year for ps3 exclusives. The only one of those that I bought was twisted metal and I have yet to even finish you. The others just didn't appeal to me. Can't wait for next year though.
