Despite claims from press, Sony have stated they feel the Vita had “a good start” in Japan.
The Vita sold 321,407 units in its first week, the week before Christmas. However sales of the console have slumped to as low as 15,000 units and are now at 18,000 units for this week.
Chief financial officer Masaru Kato has told analysts, “including software and hardware, we are carrying out the sales promotions and we do it to boost the sales, and we do not think we have any problems.
“But as far as sell-through, three weeks have passed and our sell-through is 500,000. This was announced on the 10th of January. So as a start, I think we had a very – a good start.”
Considering that the PS Vita’s launch line up caters more to a western market, with the likes of Uncharted, Rayman and Unit 13, it will be interesting to see how well the console does in the UK/US Market on February 22nd.
