Sony ships 1.4 million PS Vitas

Written by Fudzilla staff



After a relatively slow start


Sony has managed to sell 1.4 million PlayStation Vita consoles since December, in spite of a pretty slow start.

The Vita launched in December and it was met with a “meh” from quite a few consumers, but it is slowly starting to gain ground, although it is still behind Nintendo’s handheld console, the 3DS.

However, Sony is now saying that shipments are exceeding its own predictions, but there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Many observers believe handheld gaming consoles are dying a slow and quiet death, as an increasing number of consumers shift to smartphones and tablets for gaming on the go, or on the bog.

Sony is already gunning for the smartphone space and it recently introduced a couple of tablets, so it could adapt to new market trends and it seems to be in a much better position than Nintendo. We wonder if Nintendo execs and engineers are scratching their heads and thinking about some sort of cheap and cheerful gaming tablet.
