Sony has announced that the sales of the PlayStation Vita has reached 1.2 million worldwide as of February 26, 2012. Software sales across the globe have surpassed 2 million units at both retail and on PlayStation Network.

“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,” said Andrew House, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.

“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.”

This is great news, especially when you take the Japanese sales into account, which was approx. 500k; the western launch was indeed very good. We will have an accurate breakdown for you soon. You can check out our complete coverage of the PS Vita over here.

    Is 1.2 million really such a good start? If they’ve sold 500k in Japan, that means they’ve only sold 700k to the entire rest of the world. Given the reports that the Japanese sales were bad, surely 700k split across several territories is even worse?

      It’s quite fine for 5 days I guess.

    • Shubhankar Parijat

      For only 5 days, 700K is actually pretty good.

    Nice going – only just behind the 3DS launch numbers at a higher price – in the middle of a global recession… VITA FTW!!

  • Awaken

    BenC seems to think people stop buying video games in a recession. Consoles still sell. Obvious troll

  • Awaken

    BenC 3DS launch numbers were 400k. Another failed troll attempt

    • kentwalker

      3DS first week sold 420k in USA and 330k in Europe, 750k in total. I wont call it failed.

  • kentwalker

    plz note: Sony confirmed 580k PSV sold in Japan, maybe 50k in Hongkong, Korean and Taiwan.
    FW sell in west is not amazing, but hey, consider about ipad and iphone, it is not to bad, is it?

  • mike mcdonough

    the first month will always be good -3ds sold 1.5 million in its launch month then by its 3rd month it had 4 million world wide and now it has over 16 million next month will be the real test japans first week was great

    • Kartik Mudgal

      Yeah, it remains to be seen if the Vita can sustain the sales.

  • charles2029

  • icemanjj27

    the ps vita seems fine except for it’s lack of good games

    • Kartik Mudgal

      That is simply not true, it has plenty of great games. :S

    • Shubhankar Parijat

      It’s been only three months since the Vita came out, and it already has a ton of good games, so I have no idea where you’re coming from.
