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!

Assassin's Creed III Liberation sneaks into the UK chart

A sign of how well or badly the Vita is doing is the impact of exclusive games on the UK chart. ACIII Liberation manages to sneak in at No. 14 on the all-formats chart, that's the third-best performance for a Vita title, behind Uncharted and FIFA Football, which isn't really breath taking given the hype.

Will that be enough to convince Ubisoft to do any more exclusive games for the Vita? I'd be surprised if it did, still as one of the Vita's cluster of high-profile games, it could well have a long tail of sales up to and beyond Christmas.

It did take the No. 1 spot on the Vita chart, just ahead of Need for Speed Most Wanted (which is bundled in with all the other versions on the all-formats chart, I'll try and get a breakdown of them). Silent Hill Book of Memories makes it in at No. 9, with Smart As... in at No. 19.
