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!

PS Vita does modest first week game sales

The Japanese chart is out and on the back of its weekend launch, the PS Vita managed to get two games into the top 10. Hot Shots Golf (one of the best selling PSP titles) led the way with 64,000 sales with Uncharted just under 50,000. After selling 325,000 units the Vita is off to a solid, if unspectacular start.

One striking fact, the total absence of PSP games, having ruled the charts for much of the year. A couple of days sales won't show the true picture, so next week's charts will probably give a more reliable picture. One thing is for sure, the 3DS has definitely taken off with four out of the top five.
