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!

Vita sales 200,000 down on 2014 in Japan, where's the big spike coming from?

We're into the summer slump now with not much happening on the Media Create chart, and Vita sales drifting gently lower again. However, looking at the bigger picture, comparing the sales so far over this year and the last two years, the Vita is already 200,000 sales down on 2014, and 50,000 down on 2013's numbers.

Nothing seems to have moved the Vita since the last God Eater, and while there's another one on the way, most titles seem mildly popular at best. Will Sony Japan try and pull out an ace for the Vita at Tokyo Game Show, or will it follow its western counterparts and let it drift to focus on PS4?
