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!

Console sales in Japan continue to dwindle in latest Media Create figures

The latest Media Create figures shown a continuing slide across most formats including the Vita in Japan. There isn't a Vita game in the top 10, so nothing to help stabilize sales of 12,643 (inc., another 1,000ish Vita TVs), which continue to track last years numbers (compared to 9,700 in 2013).

PSP sales did rocket to 9,365 (up from 1,400) on the announcement of its retirement, as buyers stocked up on back-up consoles to keep their UMD collection viable. Only a couple of weeks until Freedom Wars, but will that spark many new hardware sales?
