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!

All quiet in the Japanese charts

A couple of new entries on the Media Create chart this week, but nothing rampaging up near the top of the chart. Note the campaign to get Labyrinth of Grisaia to the west, starting soon hopefully.

06./05. [PSV] Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2014 (Konami) - 12.576 / 63.412 (-75%)
13./00. [PSV] Grisaia no Meikyuu: Le Labyrinthe de la Grisaia (Prototype) - 4.652 / NEW
14./09. [PSV] Super Hero Generation (Bandai Namco) - 4.026 / 20.828 (-76%)
18./00. [PSV] Dramatical Murder Re:code (Nitro+) - 3.133 / NEW
20./11. [PSV] Chaos Ring III: Prequel Trilogy (Square Enix) - 2.790 / 22.193 (-60%)

On the hardware side, Vita sales are back on the slide, and now looking pretty dismal compared to last year with just over 11,000 Vita TV and Vita handhelds sold. If things don't pick up in the last 8 weeks, the Vita could crawl over a million sales, after a stronger, more promising, year so far. 

We do have Sony's girl gamer effort starting soon with the pink model, new Value Bundles and Sega's Phantasy Star Nova bundles to give things a kick, but I can't see last year's highs being matched.
