Sony updates PS Vita sales figures: ‘over 1.2 million units worldwide’, 2 million in software
As of recently, the PS Vita has become available in the locales of America, Europe and PAL territories, and now Sony’s updated sales figures are in. How does “over 1.2 million units worldwide” sound? Because that’s how many systems were purchased as of February 26th. If you’ll recall, just two days after its December 19th arrival in Japan, the Vita rushed out of the gate, with Sony citing 321,000 units sold.
Sales quickly slowed, however, despite the system making its way across Asia, as that number only rose to 500,000 by the time CES hit in January. Considering that means an additional 700K+ units were moved in less than two months, it seems that Sony’s latest handheld isn’t doing too shabby.
Furthermore, it looks like a healthy amount of early adopters stocked up on games, as Sony also noted that more than two million pieces of software have been sold (out of 25 currently available titles) via retail and the PlayStation Store — that said, there’s no telling how popular those slightly cheaper digital editions have proved.
