Sony has once again cut sales expectations for the PS Vita.
This marks the third time that the hardware giant has lowered sales forecasts for its flagship handheld machine. Initially, in 2012, Sony forecast that it would sell 10 million PlayStation Vita and 6 million PSP devices, for a total of 16 million, by the end of March 2013. This was then revised to 12 million PSPs and Vitas combined and now it's down to 10 million combined.
Sony says that in order to improve this it is "working to expand sales and operating income through the introduction of an attractive software lineup and through offering game software on mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets."
Sony's forecast for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2 sales remains the same, at 16 million devices combined by the end of March.
