Worldwide sales figures for the PlayStation Vita have emerged, with Sony claiming 1.8 million units shifted since release up until the end of March 2012.
In an earnings call this morning, Kaz Hirai said that the figure was “a good start”.
“A game platform, like Vita – the software is the key to success, how good the software is,” said Hirai. “We have to reinforce the software area in order to improve the business, that is the basic line.”
“We still have a very high motivation to develop this further. There is no change. And services and software must be strengthened.
Sony had already confirmed that 1.2 million units had shifted at the end of February, which means that just over half a million were sold in the last month.
