Fight for the future

Polite Plea: You may have noticed the number of stories winding down here. Time moves 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.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or streaming 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!

Fate Extella tops UK Vita retail chart

The UK chart finally sees some action after the seasonal sales start to drift. Marvelous manage to grab the top spot in a battle with Koei as Fate/Extella (review) outsells the latest Atelier offering. Neither game manages to dent the all-formats charts, but presumably the publishers are still making enough money to make retail versions worthwhile.


Note that these figure won't include any limited editions from the publisher's own online stores, which is where the majority of sales could come from, given the niche nature of the Vita market.

1. Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star (Marvelous)
2. Atelier Shallie Plus (Gust)
3. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens (TT)
4. Lego Marvel Avengers (TT)
5. Mincraft PlayStation Edition (4J Studios)

Over on Amazon UK's chart, we have the usual mix of new titles and sales madness. What's kind of odd, is that Amazon's sales are incorporated in the official Chart Track data above, and you'd imagine would dominate over regular retailers like GAME, Argos and the few larger online retailers that still stock Vita titles.

1. Need for Speed Most Wanted (Criterion)
2. Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified (Activision)
3. LittleBigPlanet (Sony)
4. Valkyrie Drive (PQube)
5. Corpse Party Blood Drive (Marvelous)
6. Steins Gate 0 (PQube)
7. Atelier Shallie Plus (Gust)
8. Assassin's Creed III Liberation (Ubisoft)
9. Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star (Marvelous)
10. Persona 4 Golden (Atlus)
