Fight for the future

Polite Plea: You may have noticed the number of stories winding down here. Time moves 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.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or streaming 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!

Ubisoft happy with Assassin's Creed III Liberation sales on Vita

Comments from a gi-biz article about the games' marketing suggest Ubi thinks things are going well for the game, which remains at No. 1 in the UK Vita chart. And, if you dig, way down, on Amazon's best seller PC and video games list, you'll also find it sneaking into the top 100, just below the super-priced Halo 4 in the guise of the Assassin's Creed III Liberation bundle. 
"It's the first time we've proposed another experience on another format, but there are some links between both of the games. The consumers are aware that Aveline, the main character on the Vita format, could have a future in our history for the Assassin's Creed brand, and the second thing is we wanted to bring a new experience using the features of the Vita.For now we are super happy with the first results we have got on the Vita, it is the biggest launch for week one for 2012, and it's the first Vita product for this end of the year.” "It's not only about games, we are talking about a global brand" He adds that the tactic “could give some ideas for another franchise, for sure."
Having built up the Vita engine for Liberation, it would be odd for Ubisoft not to create another game, or a new off-shoot from the series, or even bring the original titles over to Sony's handheld. I'm still playing through the game and will put up a review soon. I agree with most reviews that its not the perfect AC experience, but is still a great game to enjoy on the move.
