Default Sony Has Sold 2.2 Million Vitas Worldwide

Sony has revealed new sales data for PlayStation Vita. According to a representative from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Sony sold 2.2 million Vita systems worldwide as of June 30th.

The figure is up roughly 400,000 units since the 1.8 million that Sony CEO Kaz Hirai reported in May. Prior to that, Sony announced that 1.2 million Vitas were sold in the week following its international launch and that 790,000 Vitas had been sold in Japan as of July.

Vita launched in Japan in December 2011, followed by an international launch in February 2012. Sony Computer Entertainment America president and CEO Jack Tretton recently called Vita sales “acceptable,” adding that he’d be “happier” if they were triple what they are. Separately, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida commented that Sony is “having a more difficult time than we had anticipated” getting third-party support for the system.

Upcoming high-profile Vita titles include Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation and Need for Speed: Most Wanted, as well as Sony’s own PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Killzone: Mercenary, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault and Tearaway.

During Gamescom last week, Sony announced new features for Vita, including and PlayStation Plus and Cross Buy, which offers the Vita version of a game for free if it’s purchased on PlayStation 3. The system’s upcoming 1.80 firmware will also allow Vita to be used as a PS3 controller and adds support for PSone Classics.
