In less than three months the all new PS Vita by Sony has sold around 1.2 million units, it was launched in Japan first last December and yet only 578,812 units have been sold there to date. This means that in just under two weeks around 621,188 units have been sold across the rest of the world.
Equally the sale of software for the PS Vita is showing some good growth, currently there are over two million in sales, this includes digital downloads and because of the content it suggests sales outside of Japan will grow as at a significant rate.
According to Andrew House, who just happens to be the boss of Sony Computer Entertainment, he said;
‘PS Vita was designed to deliver the ultimate portable entertainment experience, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the reaction we’re seeing from consumers and the pace at which PS Vita is selling,’
‘The market has responded and there is clear demand for a mobile device capable of providing a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context. To sustain momentum, we’re working closely with third party developers and publishers to ensure the best games and franchises possible will be available on PS Vita, and our software line up for the remainder of 2012 will have something for everyone across the globe.’
