Our friends over at Eurogamer must’ve been great at mathematics at school as they’ve kinda figured out just how poor a showing the Vita has had since launch.
This morning Kaz Hirai had the following to say after withholding the figures for the Vita from Sony’s annual earning report:
“About Vita, the last year, [we sold] 1.8 million units for US, Japan, Asia and Europe. And as a starting phase, I think it was a good start.”
At the end of February they announced that the Vita had sold 1.2 million units worldwide. That’s equates to 600,000 Vita units going to homes in March.
Sony expects to sell 16 million Vita’s and PSP’s in their financial year and mentioned that they estimate 6 million of the sales coming from the PSP… that leaves 10 million for the Vita. At 600 000 per month they are going to be way off that target. Go ahead, do the math!
