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 up 1,000 in Japan

Golden Week doesn't do as much for game hardware sales as it used to, but with no new games out as most of Japan was on holiday last week, the Vita managed to add 1,150 sales, pushing it over 7,000 as it creeps back toward respectable sales numbers.

Anything above 7,500 seems reasonable for a handheld at the Vita's stage of life, and with (fake-looking) rumors of a successor this year, Japanese buyers had better stock up while they can, for whenever Sony does decide to end production.

The new releases all came out the previous week, due to the holiday, but those numbers only came out yesterday. This week, Minecraft is back in the top 20 at No. 18 with 4,000 holiday sales, approaching the 1,150,000 mark, while Dungeon Traveler 2-2 creeps toward 40,000 sales, hanging on at No. 20.
