According to the most recent reports coming from Sony (which released on June 30), just 2.2 million wild PlayStation Vita consoles have been freed into the wild.
PlayFront revealed the handheld’s unimpressive numbers to the world first, which have increased by 400,000 units since the last update on March 31.
What’s most interesting, though, is what the PSP has managed to do over those three months. Earlier in August, Sony let investors know that combined Vita and PSP sales reached 1.4 million between April, May and June. If this is true and the 400,000 figure for the PlayStation Vita is accurate, that means that the PSP sold one million of that total.
The PSP is a now seven-year-old piece of hardware, but that hasn’t stopped it from more than doubling its newer, more-powerful brother in sales.
