Media Create, which tracks sales data for the Japanese market, has announced a preliminary report on the sales of Sony’s latest portable Console, the PlayStation Vita.
The full report will be released tomorrow however this initial report points to Sony having shifted 325,000 units in the first two days of release (17-18 of December). This comes with an estimate of Sony shipping 500,000 units for the launch, working out at a 65% sell-through rate for the console.
If you compare this with the launch sales of Nintendo’s 3DS console earlier this year, it fall slightly short with Nintendo shifting 375,000 units. Whether a lack of 50,000 unit sold is a poor start for the new console remains to be seen, however if compared with the amount of units sold by the original PSP at launch, which sits at 166,000, it seems that the PS Vita has a better start in life than it predecessor.
