PlayStation Vita sold 61,000 units during launch in the UK, according to a new report on Eurogamer.net.
Rumour yesterday suggested that the figure was actually in the region of 45k, however it seems this figure was way off, well that’s if Analyst Nicholas Parker’s contacts are anything to go by.
“The PS Vita sold through to UK consumers 61k units in the four days of last week, not the 45k which has been in the press,” said Parker on his Twitter page, adding that his source was “reliable”.
PlayStation Europe boss Jim Ryan had said earlier in the week, following the news 1.2 million units has been sold worldwide, that “Launch quantities will sell out,” adding that he “thinks that’s looking pretty certain.”
Meanwhile, Sony Computer Entertainment boss Andrew House also added how thrilled Sony was with the reaction seen from consumers and the pace at which PS Vita is selling.
