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!

Japanese sales see 3rd Super Robot Wars dominate

Despite a stonking 121K sales and taking No. 1, 3rd Super Robot Wars from Bandai failed to help shift Vita hardware. The unit sale numbers dropped around 5K on the previous week, back to its recent baseline of around 22K. Sword Art Online Lost Song sold another 23K, while Minecraft continues to do well, sticking in the top 10 for another week, shifting 15,000.


The Vita is now 100,000 total sales down on last year, and no game since FFX-HD seems to be able to trigger high-level hardware numbers. So, what's it to be Sony, new hardware or some major existing IP game announcements?
