PS Vita sales remain slow According to the latest figures from Media Create, Sony PS Vita sales remain extremely slow, but the company doesn't seem to be bothered by it.
In fact, Sony CFO Masaru Kato had this to say on the matter: "As far as the sell-through, three weeks have passed and sell-through is 500,000. This was announced on the 10th of January. So as a start, I think we had a very good start.

Including software and hardware, we are carrying out the sales promotions and we do it to boost the sales, and we do not think we have any problems."

Current lifetime sales are at just 535,000 units in Japan, with only 18,942 sold last week.

The console heads to the U.S. and Europe on February 22nd.

Well when you restrict your customers with proprietary accessories and force them to pay an exuberant price for them, what the hell do you expect? The execs at Sony are apparently not very smart, are they?
