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!

UK Top 10, shuffle the same old pack

Right, this is starting to get really jaded now, and would be a problem for Sony, if it cared. Anyone taking a look at the Vita chart will see old games littering the place and a crippling lack of new releases. If you were picking one up then there's still lots of solid names in the list, but it is feeling its age now.

With Minecraft the only major release until Autumn/Winter (Freedom Wars October, Tales of Hearts R November), its not going to get much better. And to think, this is quite a decent list, compared to Spring when very old (even launch) games dominated. So while indies may keep the userbase playing, the wind down to obsolescence continues.

1 +    FINAL FANTASY X/X-2 HD REMASTER SQUARE ENIX 3 22
2 -    BORDERLANDS 2 2K GAMES 1 12
3 +    THE RATCHET & CLANK TRILOGY SONY 4 7
4 -    KILLZONE: MERCENARY SONY 2 50
5 =  TEARAWAY SONY 5 39
6 =  FOOTBALL MANAGER 2014 SEGA 6 19
7 =  CHILD OF LIGHT UBISOFT 7 7

9 -  ASSASSIN'S CREED III LIBERATION UBISOFT 8 91
10 -  GOD OF WAR COLLECTION SONY 9 15
