The PlayStation Vita had a notably sluggish launch in Japan, but since the console has gone on sale in the US and UK markets, they’ve more than doubled in a week. I know what you’re thinking sales hounds, these are shipped numbers, but Sony didn’t attach their traditional “shipped” qualifier to these figures.
It makes sense, with such an extended console life cycle this time around, gamers are clamoring for their next generation experience, and the Vita definitely delivers on that front. Our review of the PS Vita went live over the weekend, and our reviewer has definitely proclaimed that he is in love with the PlayStation Vita. You can find that here.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the reaction we’re seeing from consumers and the pace at which PS Vita is selling,” said Andrew Hous of SCE. “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.”
We’ll have to see if this strength continues for the Vita as more players get their hands on one, and see that the device is truly capable of gaming experiences that just can’t be found elsewhere.
