Since its December 17th Japan launch, the Vita has sold 1.2 million units. Before the Vita even launched, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of people predicted that the Vita was going to die because of its price, and that smartphones can do everything that the Vita can do, which that iself is not true. This right here proves all of them wrong. And now the Vita is ok.
Andrew House, CEO of SCE Inc., said that the market has shown that there is "a demand for a mobile device capable of providing a revolutionary combination of rich gaming and social connectivity within a real-world context." Sounds fancy, but more importantly House said that Sony is "working closely with third-party developers and publishers" to make sure we get the coolest stuff. He also says that in 2012, the Vita will have something for everyone.
He also announced that over 2 million Vita games have sold, both in retail and via download.
