Sony announces 1.2 million Vitas sold

Sony’s PS Vita is seemingly off to a pleasing start in the US and EU. The company has announced that, following the launch of the device in these two territories and Latin America, sales of the system are now at 1.2 million worldwide.

Sony also confirmed software sales of 2 million across both retail and PSN. Given both Uncharted and FIFA‘s success in the UK last week, we’re willing to bet they make up a good¬†percentage¬†of that figure elsewhere as well.

SCE president Andrew House said of the news: “PS Vita was designed to deliver the ultimate portable entertainment experience, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the reaction we’re seeing from consumers and the pace at which PS Vita is selling. The market has responded and there is clear demand for a mobile device capable of providing a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real world context.

“To sustain momentum, we’re working closely with 3rd party developers and publishers to ensure the best games and franchises possible will be available on PS Vita, and our software line up for the remainder of 2012 will have something for everyone across the globe.”

This would be what some would call the honeymoon period for Sony’s new system. How will sales stack up in the following weeks?
