Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

PSP Sales Dip, PlayStation Brand Rakes in the Cash

Sony stated that NGP is still on course for launch this year during its Japanese earnings briefing earlier today. I guess we'll find out where and when during E3.

Sony sold 8 million PSPs last year (down a couple of million, but still not bad for a gadget approaching end of life), helping the PlayStation division to a £270/$435 million profit but sales got only a slight increase at ¥1,572 billion (£11.7 billion/$19.2 billion).

It expects to sell another 6 million this year, helped by new bundles. Sony sold 46.6 million PSP games, which was up on last year's 44.4 million, the figures will be damaged by an estimated £106 million cost due to the PSN outage and subsequent restoration/restitution. There was no breakdown between PSP/PSPGo but, frankly, it won't make much difference
