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!

Monster Hunter slays Japanese chart

No prizes for guessing who's number one, which is likely to be there for some time. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate sold around 1.6 million copies in just two days, Capcom announced ahead of the chart update later today. Add in downloads and that's probably over two million.


PS Vita games are sticking around the Media Create chart, with Danganronpa and Legend of Heroes 2 bothering the 6 figure mark:

8 Danganronpa Another Episode Spike Chunsoft this week: 7,184 total: 93,113
10 The Legend of Heroes II  Falcom 5,021 102,905 87
12  FIFA 15 Electronic Arts 14/10/09 4,253 New entry
18 Ar Nosurge Plus: Ode to an Unborn Star (Gust) - 3.157 / 12.398 


Nintendo announced the new model 3DS topped 230,000 units on the week. Lets see the new pink Vita or Value Packs match that! As if that wasn't "kerching enough", another version of Tokai Watch is due in December!

My money is still on a PlayStation 4 Portable to lure Japan into PS4 ownership that they can play on the move. Unsurprisingly, Vita hardware sales dived to below 10,000, losing almost 5,000 sales. Looking forward, here's some recent PS Vita scores from Famitsu, but there's nothing that should help sales match those big blue sales spikes at the end of last year in the chart:

Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2014 (PS3/Vita) – 9/9/8/9
Super Hero Generation (PS3/Vita) – 8/8/8/7
Puri Pia: Prince Pia Carrot (PSP) – 8/7/7/6
Divekick: Addition Edition (PS3/PSV) – 9/8/8/7
Chaos Rings III: Prequel Trilogy (PSV) – 8/8/9/8
