Sony PS Vita Sells 1.2 Million Units Worldwide

Considering that the earlier Japan release’s response was lukewarm at best and that the device was fully released to Western buyers last week, Sony’s latest handheld – the PlayStation Vita – is doing extremely well. The large brick filled to the brim with sensors and input devices and a gorgeous screen was taken to by gamers – the dual analog sticks and the release of Uncharted: Golden Abyss definitely pushing the sales of the device.


SCEI President Andy House stated that Sony will be doing whatever it can to keep this momentum up and running.

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 3rd 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.

The software sales (digital distribution and retail chain) crossed the 2 million mark as well.
