Sony’s new PS Vita portable gaming console went on sale in Japan on Saturday, and Sony has revealed that it has already sold over 300,000 device in just the first two days after launch.
Sony had manufactured a first batch of 700,000 devices to meet demand in Japan during launch. But even selling 321,400 devices, sales are still a little slow for Sony, who was hoping stores would have sold out of their consoles.
However when compared to sales of the original PSP which notched up two-day launch sales of 166,000 units back in 2004, the figures look a little better. By the face of portable gaming has changed considerably since 2004.
It will be interesting to see how sales continue after the initial teething problems experienced by PS Vita owners in Japan, and when the PS Vita eventually arrives in the US and Europe.
