Early US Vita sales 'exceptional' - Sony

"Launch of PlayStation Vita saw overwhelming enthusiasm," says platform holder

Sony says Vita enjoyed a very strong start to life in the US following its February 22 release.


"After months of anticipation, the US launch of PlayStation Vita saw overwhelming enthusiasm amongst gamers, resulting in exceptional hardware, software and peripheral sales," SCEA corporate communications boss Patrick Seybold said in a statement.

"Customer satisfaction rates are very high and momentum will continue as gamers get their hands on a deep line-up of blockbuster titles that take advantage of PS Vita's unique features, including cross-platform play with the PlayStation 3."

Sony said last week that over 1.2 million Vita units have been sold globally since the handheld launched in Japan in December.
