PS Vita has 'good start' with 1.8 million sales worldwide

Sony details the success of the PS Vita

Worldwide sales numbers for the PlayStation Vita were 1.8 million at the end of the fiscal year this March, Sony revealed in an earnings call following their annual earnings report today.

Speaking through a translator, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai stated this is a good start for the new platform.

"About Vita," he said, "the last year, [we sold] 1.8 million units for US, Japan, Asia and Europe. And as a starting phase, I think that was a good start."

According to the company, this year saw a significant drop in its PlayStation division however, with a loss of $2.8 billion in the Consumer Products and Services division of which it belongs to.

"The decrease in the game business reflects lower sales of PlayStation 3 hardware due to a strategic price reduction and lower sales of PlayStation 2 due to platform migration," the platform holder confirmed today in its earnings announcement.

The company stated it expects both PSP and PS Vita will make a combined 16 million sales next year.
