Combined worldwide sales of the PlayStation Vita have reached just 2.2 million, Sony has confirmed. The total is of June 30th.
The figure, when combined with previous totals, shows that the portable has sold just 400,000 in the last quarter. Even more troubling, if you take the data from Sony’s last earnings report (which lumped Vita and PSP together) it suggests that the PSP sold more than double that of its much younger (and more able) brother.
Despite lots of bundles, Sony have said they won’t cut the price of the machine soon.
Hopefully the Vita’s strong showing at Gamescom last week will inspire confidence in the platform, with some great titles on display and the promise of PS Mobile support very soon.
