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!

PS Vita UK chart, waiting for the storm

Over the next few weeks, the gaming charts will be torn to shreds by a torrent of new AAA releases. Except for the Vita which gets a smattering of new games, mainly Freedom Wars, Tales of Hearts R and the belated boxed release of Minecraft.

Until then, the current Vita chart snoozes on, with just a couple of reentries (LEGO Hobbit at no. 7) suggesting that anyone even buys Vita games anymore. Will the release of PlayStation TV jiggle things about a bit? Certainly, I expect quite a few complaints as unaware buyers pick up non-compatible games for it.

1 - FIFA 15 EA SPORTS (last week) 1 (weeks on chart) 5
2 -  KILLZONE: MERCENARY SONY 2 60
3 - BORDERLANDS 2 2K GAMES 3 22

Over Amazon, the usual suspects dominate the pre-order chart, with only LEGO Movie and The Muppets recently added. The most searched for term on the blog recently is "Vita games 2015" - I'm starting to wonder just how few results there will be, in a retail capacity.
