Sony announced that the PlayStation Vita has managed to sell 1.2 million units globally. The company also revealed that two million software units have been sold globally. The software sales numbers are a combination of both digital and retail sales.
"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," said SCE group president Andrew House in a statement. "To sustain momentum, we're working closely with third-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."
The PS Vita launched in North America on February 22. Recently SCEA's Jack Tretton indicated that early sales indicators were very positive for the company's latest hand-held. The system was launched in Japan in December of 2011.
