Posted By | On 10th, May. 2012

Sony has revealed that Vita has sold 1.8 million units worldwide. They did not show this in their financial reports but chose to reveal it during their earnings call.

These figures are as of March 2012. Sony had earlier revealed that Vita had sold 1.2 million worldwide in February this year.

“About Vita. Tthe last year, [we sold] 1.8 million units for US, Japan, Asia and Europe. And as a starting phase, I think it was a good start,” Sony CEO Kaz Hirai said.

He also emphasized on the importance of software for the portable.

“A game platform, like Vita – the software is the key to success, how good the software is. We have to reinforce the software area in order to improve the business, that is the basic line,” he said.

“And vis a vis Vita, at this moment, there is no decline or lack of motivation as a portable platform. And also, in order to connect with the Network, this is a very important product indeed for us, and therefore we still have a very high motivation to develop this further. There is no change. And services and software must be strengthened.

“In other words, the collaborative approach is very important, so is third-party. And from first party studios, the titles will be presented one after the other, so please look at them and give your evaluation based on them.”
