The PlayStation Vita has moved 2.2 million units, but is still behind the Nintendo 3DS.
The PlayStation Vita's life-to-date sales have reached 2.2 million as of June 30th, head of PlayStation Germany Uwe Bassendowski told Playfront.
In early May, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai announced that the Vita had moved 1.8 million units, with 400,000 total sold during the months of April, May, and June. Early this month the company announced it sold 1.4 million PS Vitas and PlayStation Portables combined during the last quarter, with the PSP accounting for nearly 1 million of the total.
The Nintendo 3DS is still outselling Sony's handheld, pushing 3.61 million units prior to its price cut in August of last year. Sales of Nintendo's handheld doubled to 6.68 million units one month later, a little more than triple the Vita's current lifetime sales.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Shuhei Yoshida of Sony Worldwide Studios stated that it was "too early" for the PS Vita to see a price cut.
