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!

Summon Night 3 and Sol Trigger blazes away on the Japan games chart

Sol Trigger got a lot of coverage earlier in the year, but went a bit quiet in the summer. However, it is now out on the shelves as one of the last big PSP releases. The game lands at No. 4 in the charts behind Summon Night 3, a budget-price remake from Namco and the horde of Resident Evil 6 zombies and the new Pro Evo.

01. [PS3] Resident Evil 6 (Capcom) {2012.10.04} (¥7.990) - 634.933
02. [PS3] World Soccer Winning Eleven 2013 (Konami) {2012.10.04} (¥7.980) - 223.884
03. [PSP] Summon Night 3 (Bandai Namco Games) {2012.10.04} (¥3.990) - 51.455
04. [PSP] Sol Trigger (Image Epoch) {2012.10.04} (¥6.279) - 42.037  
05. [360] Resident Evil 6 (Capcom) {2012.10.04} (¥7.990) - 41.652 

On the hardware side, the Vita has now crept over 1,000,000 sales in Japan, but Sony won't be in a mood to celebrate as it only managed sell around 8,000 this week. 300,000 of those sales came on the launch weekend, leaving nine months for it to accrue the rest. The venerable PSP managed double that and is now approaching 20 million sales in Japan.
