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!

Sony PSP Sales Up, Despite the Hype for PS Vita

Okay, didn't see that one coming, Sony PSP sales have shot up by almost half a million from this time last year to 1.8 million for Sony's recent quarter (up 100,000 units on the last quarter), perhaps the price cuts and plentiful cheap games have helped it out.

However, Sony's game sales for the PSP dropped from 9 million to 6 million, possibly because Sony hasn't developed any new games for it recently. Sony's general business operations were affected by the Japanese tsunami and earthquake.

In a similar vein CapCom, saw a drop in game sales, and while Monster Hunter Portable 3 is still selling well, perhaps if they'd released it in the west by now, it would have seen some better numbers.
