Hirai stresses the importance of third-party studio partnerships
Sony has sold about 1.8 million PlayStation Vita units during handheld’s three month launch window, the company’s new CEO Kaz Hirai has revealed.
The handheld was released on December 17th in Japan, and on February 22nd across North America and Europe.
Sales figures were disclosed for the period ending March 31st. Calculated against previous disclosures, it means that Sony sold about 600,000 units globally during March.
Following a relatively upbeat launch day in the UK and US, the hi-spec system appears to have quickly lost momentum.
Hirai suggested to investors that sales will need to pick up in order for the device to be a success for Sony.
