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!

Japanese sales figures: they don't get Resistance either

Here's Enterbrain/Famitsu's sales figures for the week, showing flat Vita sales at 11,000 in Japan, and some interesting action on the software side. The Vita version of Level 5's Time Travelers outsold the 3DS version by a few copies, while the Japanese finally got their hands on Resistance, selling just 5,277 units.

Persona 4 heads for the 200,000 mark, while Metal Gear continues to sell helpful, if not great, numbers. The PSP version of Time Travelers is out next week.

The Media Create figures mirror these pretty much with the Vita a few dozen units up in hardware, with a life-to-date figure of 831,000. Persona 4 sold 6,000 copies according to their figures and should easily pass 200,000 this week, so pretty much one in four Vita owners possess that game.
