Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be 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. Please consider clicking an ad to help 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!

TGS Exit Survey Shows Most Gamers Want a Vita

A while back there was some dumb general population survey showing most Japanese weren't interested in gaming any more. Leading to headlines of the "no one will buy a Vita" type which looked rather silly in light of the sell-out for pre-orders.

Of slightly more relevance will be this one covered by Famitsu, polling those who attended the September's Tokyo Games Show. It reveals that some 52.1% of gamers want a PS Vita, ahead of 23.8% for a Wii U. And also pointed out that around 75% of the owned a PSP.

Over 220,000 people visited the show, so that's a health proportion of Japan's gaming populations looking at the Vita as their next purchase.
