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!

Japan gets another no-game Vita limited edition

Does Sony have no shame? Here's another gameless Vita limited edition, tying in with the launch of Square Enix's Final Fantasy 14: Heavensward, a game that will only launch on PS4, PS3 and PC. They're out in a couple of weeks on the Japanese PS store.

Sure the Vita TV and Vita console have some nice little decals on them, and they come with a downloadable theme, but without the game to play (ignoring Remote Play, cough!) what's the damn point? They follow on the equally pretty but pointless Yakuza 0 limited editions.

For reference, this is the 43rd model of Vita to go on sale in Japan, I count that Europe has managed just three. Black PS Vita 1000 launch, White Assassin's Creed: Liberation, Black PS Vita 2000, excluding all the software megpack bundles. And Sony wonders what the problem is?

Incidentally, Square has also announced Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is now coming to PC. Is anyone else wondering if Square will try to make up for last year's E3 farce and pull a Vita version out of the hat too?
