PlayStation Vita sales topped 2.2 million worldwide as of June 30

joystiq : Sony says that its latest console, the PlayStation Vita, topped 2.2 million units sold this summer. "The latest figures we've released for Vita (as of June 30th) are 2.2. million sales worldwide," an SCEE rep told us. We reached out following a report from PlayFront.de, where German PlayStation head Uwe Bassendowski mentioned the number in the context of the Vita's marketing.

The story is too old to be commented.

is this considered a success or something?

3DS killed it on sales.

Only the diehard consider it a success. Those are terrible numbers

Surely they have to announce a price drop soon, the 3DS was also doing poorly until the price was stopped and now it's unstoppable.

Although the price isn't the only issue, where are the killer apps? The developers just don't seem to be fully supporting it yet.

Sadly for Sony, they need to drop the price to 199 or so, because those sales are not too good.

Yeah, Sony's in a tough bind with the Vita. They've been bleeding money for years and can't afford to drop the price so Vita sells poorly. With poor sales third party interest drops. Sony can't afford to support it on their own. It's a vicious cycle.
And Sony closed Liverpool Studios today, no more Wipeout.
