Sony record strong sales figures over two-day period
Sony have not provided exact numbers for units shipped, but it is estimated to be around 700,000 units. That figure should become clearer as more sales numbers are released by Media Create and ASCII later in the week.
According to Andriasang, Sony have officially stated that 500,000 units of the 3G/Wi-Fi would be shipped to retailers. This particular model included 100 free hours of 3G service. They also stated that they expect to sell through this initial lot fairly quickly. However, it is also currently unknown which model has sold well and thus console features gamers in Japan prefer.
The PS Vita goes on sale in North America and Europe on February 22 and in Australasia on February 23.
