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's PSP vs. Vita problem in a simple picture

Here's a neat little snapshot of Sony's problems in Japan right now. Here with have the company's own magazine guide to what's out and coming on the PSP soon:

And here's the Vita:

Sure, you can throw in the usual "early days" and "user base" caveats, but for anyone thinking of buying a Vita, they'd take one look at this and take their money elsewhere. At least in Europe and America, the dearth of PSP games (apart from some high quality contributions that appeal to core gamers) is pushing gamers more to the Vita, albeit slowly.

I suppose as long as Sony are profiting from PSP hardware and game sales, they don't mind so much, but from an external perspective, it is kind of scary. Anyway, here's my release list to cheer you up a bit. Sony can feel free to borrow it if they like.
