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!

Freedom Wars can't break into the all-formats chart

No surprise that Freedom Wars is top of the Vita chart, but there's no sign of it in the all-formats top 20 (waiting to see the top 40 list), and still no reviews from major sites, (plenty of fan sites have them though) can anyone smell conspiracy here? Although, as if any review will get noticed this week as the major sites fawn all over the latest Call of Duty remake (okay, I'm a bit jealous).

UPDATE: Stop the press, Freedom Wars managed to break into the top 40..... at No. 39!




No surprise that Minecraft is top of Sony's most popular PSN Vita chart and over on Amazon Minecraft is also the only representative in the all-formats 100 best sellers, currently at 53. Despite Sony Japan and partners putting major development chops into the game, I've seen no marketing from Sony Europe, So, again, if there was ever a time where you could stick a fork in the Vita as a developer's machine, this is it. Indies, ports and imports all the way folks.
