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!

Vita sales get a mystery boost in Japan this week

Must be a funny week in Japan, no new games on the chart, yet Vita sales spike nicely up. Perhaps there's a digital only game that's grabbed some interest - I'll go have a peek. Even so, Vita is now over 200,000 sales down on last year's numbers.

 Minecraft's sales on the other hand are up almost 50%, propelling it back into the Media Create top five. Otherwise the recent raft of Vita games continue to under perform, with IA/VT and Luminous Arc vanishing fast.
