According to PlayStation Germany boss Uwe Bassendowski.

Sony has sold 2.2 million PlayStation Vitas worldwide, PlayStation Germany Chief Uwe Bassendowski said at Gamescom.

The PlayStation boss acknowledged mistakes made in Vita’s marketing campaign, the biggest being losing sight of the younger audience, which they’d like to correct by shifting their focus to that audience and better corresponding with the media.

    Vitas are for superstars.

  • PrinceHeir

    ace :D

    but 3DS is 7 million O____O

    still i hope Vita sticks around, i want handhelds to survive another 10 years this time.

    • MGB

      its not even a year :)
      still good though .

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      It will stick around. Its not even a year and we haven’t even seen how it will do during the holiday season at all.

    I’ll be honest, I was expecting less when everybody talked about how poor it was selling.

      Lots of folks make it sound really bad. The Vita isn’t selling that poorly. Honestly, I expect it to sell even better in the following months.

        Uhm, 3ds selled better even before the price cut; and everybody said 3ds was selling poorly.

    Vita is the best piece of handheld gaming HW ever concieved.
    Uncharted GA was fantastic.
    Rayman is awesome.
    Mortal Kombat is killer.
    Gravity Rush is amazing.

    This thing will be around for a long time and wont be matched on a technical level until the 4DS comes out but of course Sony will be a generation ahead with the Vita 2 by then.

      Funny how you would assume Sony’s next handheld would have better tech than nintendo’s when neither companies have released information about the specs of their next handheld or if there will be any.

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        Its called logic.

        • EspadaKiller

           Rofl that’s the best reply hahahaha.

          • Keiichii

            Not really.

        • Malcolm Reynolds

          What is this “logic” for which you speak?

          LoL!

          Thank you sir. No real need for me to respond as I can see you have already taken care of this one for me.

        • Keiichii

          What exactly is this logic you speak of? 
          I would like to know.

          • KingOptimusOrigins111

            Obviously 5 other people that like my comment pretty much understand but you and FlameEmperor.

            • Keiichii

              Okay? But I’m asking you to explain it to me since I don’t understand. Last time I checked more than 5 people existed on this planet.

        Well….if you look at history :

        • FlameEmperor

          Thats history, No one knows what the future may hold.

          • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

            I do 0_0.

            • Keiichii

              Good for you.

    it just need more games…i liked the sony mobile games idea on vita which acording to them will start in fall then you can play any android game on vita..i think its a fantastic idea 

    • rockman29

      Can’t wait for Tearaway and Killzone: Mercenary myself. Those are gonna be sweet on Vita.

      • Keiichii

        Needs more Adventure/RPG’s/RTS. Getting tired of shooters. Tearaway looks interesting so waiting to get it.

    Don’t worry Sony
    +1 sales at Chinese New Year

  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    It needs  to sell more so the 3ds and it can fight it out,and handheld gamers can bennifit !

    • Keiichii

      The price the VITA and its accessories are whats turning some buyers away atm, plus it doesn’t really have that much games to play atm also. When and if games like monster hunter goes on it then the sales will really raise. But right now I’m not sure it will sell as much as the 3DS atm.

    “which they’d like to correct by shifting their focus to that audience and better corresponding with the media.”

    Basicly meaning that they will focus more on kids now…sucks XD
