Sony have just announced the sales of the PlayStation Vita, and the numbers are quite impressive: Vita sales hit 1.2 million globally, which helped with launches in Americas, Europe, and PAL territories. According to Sony, sales of the hardware have "exceeded expectations".
Software sales for the PlayStation Vita have passed 2 million units. Sony Computer Entertainment president, Andrew House, says:
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 third 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.
