It's being reported in the latest issue of MCV that PS Vita sales have risen 68% since the launch of the PS4.
According to the magazine, Vita sales were boosted 68 per cent in the week of PS4's launch, and by 65 per cent the following week, although no actual sales numbers were disclosed.
"PS Vita sales wise we are continuing to see strong week-on-week growth since our latest campaign kicked in," said senior product manager Ben Law (via Videogamer). "The new TV advert went live this week and we've already seen amazing feedback from PS4 owners on the Remote Play feature, and the success of Tearaway highlights what [a] great proposition PS Vita is, either as a standalone device or as the perfect companion to PS4."
It remains to be seen if PS Vita sales will continue to rise as Sony pushes the fact that the device is the perfect companion for PS4. Hopefully with PS Plus support, indie titles and other new gaming experiences, sales of the Vita will continue to be strong.
What do you think? Are the Vita's fortunes about to turn around for the best?
