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!

New releases nudge Vita sales up in Japan

Two new entries in a low-selling Japanese Media Create chart shift Vita hardware sales north of 15,000. But hardware is still dead-to-flat in Japan. Instead of comparing the poor sales of Wii U, PS4 and Vita to past consoles, gamers need to get it into their heads that this is the reality now.

Since Konami couldn't be bothered to release a Vita Winning Eleven this year, the PSP version does pretty well, hitting the top 10, while visual novel Amnesia World and another touchy-feely game Battle Ecstasy keep the saucy Moero Chronicle in the upper reaches of the chart.

01./00. [PS3] World Soccer Winning Eleven 2014: Samurai Blue Challenge (Konami)  - 35.656 / NEW
02./00. [PS4] Infamous: Second Son (Sony Computer Entertainment)  - 34.801 / NEW
