The PS Vita was first launched on December 17 last year in Japan followed by Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea. The official Australian launch was last week, in addition to other regions including North and Latin America, Europe and PAL territories2.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the reaction we’re seeing from consumers and the pace at which PS Vita is selling,” said Andrew House, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
“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,” House added.
Software sales across the globe have surpassed 2.0 million units at both retail and on PlayStation Network.
The PS Vita sports an impressive range of features new to the mobile gaming industry, including dual analogue joysticks, 5in OLED multi-touchscreen, quad core processor and Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity.
