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!

Quiet week for Japan's Media Create chart, Minecraft still strong

After a few weeks of rough and tumble software releases, none of which seemed to have a massive impact on Vita sales, its back to the quiet times for a couple of weeks, with nothing major out until the end of the month.



The Vita sold just over 18,000 units this week, although everything else is diving too, its first dip below 20K in six weeks. That's still selling around 100,000 units a month, which in the current market is pretty impressive. This week it was just a few behind the PS4 and a few ahead of the new 3DS model.

Minecraft is still selling way in boxed form, back up the chart to No. 4, selling another 11,000 making it one of the more consistent sellers for the Vita. The only new entry in the chart was Demon Souls 2, selling a feeble 20K on PS4.
