PS Vita hits 1.2 Million sales worldwide

/ 7 years ago

Over 1.2 million PlayStation Vita consoles have been sold worldwide, Sony has revealed.

Worldwide software sales have passed the two million mark, meanwhile. That figure counts both retail purchases and digital downloads.

PlayStation Vita arrived in North America on 15th February, before European and Australian launches last week.

As of 19th February, 578,812 Vita consoles were sold in Japan.

Vita also previously launched in Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea last year, although sales figures for those regions have not been revealed.

The majority of the remainder figure – more than 620,000 out of the 1.2 million total – have presumably been sold in the past two weeks.

Sony Computer Entertainment boss Andrew House said the following:

“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.”
