The Sony PlayStation Vita handheld gaming device has been launched on the Japanese Market and have sold approximately 321,400 units of the handheld gaming device during the first two days of sale, which is a good start even though Sony’s competitor Nintendo sold 50,000 more units of the Nintendo 3DS on its first two days of sale.
The new PlayStation Vita is the successor to the PlayStation Portable (PSP) and it is also compatible with games developed for the PSP which is a good option for gamers who will get upgrading from the PSP and will also help with Sony’s sales. Since the PSP was launched a few years back, Sony has sold a whopping 73 million units to date.
The PlayStation Vita will debut on the Hong Kong and Taiwan market in the next few days while the official launch for the USA, Europe and Australia will occur in late February 2012. So far there are approximately 25 game titles for the Vita announced to be launched on the European market in February.
