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!

Visual novels keep the Vita trundling along in Japan

Almost exactly matching the dismal pattern of 2013, Vita sales are glued to the bottom of the winter sales trend this week, but still sold another 8,200 consoles in Japan. The Media Create chart has no Vita games in the top 10, and it looks like even the immovable Minecraft might be on the way out, with only a couple of new visual novels to dent the lower half.

11./00. [PSV] Kamaitachi no Yoru: Rinne Saisei (5pb.) - 6.140 / NEW
...
14./00. [PSV] Diabolik Lovers: Lost Eden (Idea Factory) - 5.537 / NEW
...
17./10. [PSV] Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition  (Sony) - 4.025 / 1.110.103 (-12%)
18./12. [PSV] Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony  (Spike Chunsoft) - 3.187 / 115.840 (-24%)


Super Robot Wars V is out today in Japan, and has an English subs version for Asia, so sales could do pretty well.
