The Stig joins the Vita chart of doom

Some say this Vita sales chart mimics Donald Trump's ratings and when goes below 2,000, he will be removed from office.

Some say the chart represents an evil sigil that, when complete, will end the universe.

All we know is, its called the Stig's-only-source-of-data-for-Vita-sales-in-the-world's-cousin. And I'm damn well going to use it.

That jolly intro was because some people think all the chart-based-doom-mongering is serious! When obviously, its just a bit of a laugh to get us through the depressing sales decline and inevitable end of production announcement! Happy now?

In the week that Sony starts publishing games for the Switch, naturally, the sales news is fantastic with Vita sales up 400. That's despite only a lowly Prototype period Visual Novel landing at No. 20 in the Media Create chart, selling 3,400 units. Yoshiwara Higanbana is a port of a romance PC VN for what its worth.

In very short order the Japanese chart has become a Switch/PS4 love in. As the Vita retreats rapidly into its niche, it seems the focus is more on ports of old curios, so it'll be fun to see what publishers can drag up (like Saturn game Doukoku Soshite).
