PlayStation Vita sales at 1.8 million Hirai says figures are a "good start."
Considering the record loss that Sony has just experienced, it could do with some good news. New chief executive Kazuo Hirai revealed that 1.8 million PlayStation Vita units have been sold by the firm so far globally.

"The last year, [we sold] 1.8 million units for US, Japan, Asia and Europe. And as a starting phase, I think it was a good start," he revealed during an earnings call. The sales figure is reportedly absent from financial reports released by Sony today.

"A game platform, like Vita - the software is the key to success, how good the software is. We have to reinforce the software area in order to improve the business, that is the basic line," said Hirai.

Sony expects to sell 16 million handheld gaming units over the coming year (10 million Vitas, 6 million PSPs).

Something tells me Sony will miss their mark; but there are a number of ways they could go about hitting it, so we'll see.
