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!

Media Create flatline continues, how long until Sony starts developing for Switch?

Zombie Vita sales continue bouncing around the 4,600 mark, with no new games in the Media Create chart for the handheld. Even with Switch pretty much sold out around Japan, no one beyond this mythical few thousand seems keen to pick up the Vita, and Sony hasn't shown off a new colour or promotional model in months, missing the simplest of tricks.

Clearly, Switch will be the next Vita, but Sony just letting it walk in and take over the world remains pretty embarrassing. How long until Sony starts developing its own IP titles (more LocoRoco rather than Uncharted) for the Switch? The clock is ticking I think!

UPDATE - and here we go, Sony Music's new game brand publishing on Switch!


Down in Famitsu land, haven't seen any review scores this week, but a few Vita games appear in the most-wanted chart. This shows there's still interest, but how long until these, or certainly any 2018 titles, swap over to Nintendo's baby.

10. Romancing SaGa 3 – 220 votes (TBA)
19. Shin Yomawari – 154 (out next week)
22. Tokyo Clanpool – 104 (October)
