Gamesta writes: The Vita has hit a pretty gigantic speed bump as far as sales go. Well, maybe more of a gigantic spike strip.
Since its release, Sony has sold about two million Vitas worldwide. At launch it sold fairly well with about 325,000 units. But because of the lack of many strong games to go along with the new sleek and fancy system, sales plummeted in the early months. During one week in February, the Vita was actually outsold by the PSP at a measly 12,309 units.
There are only 25 games currently available for the Vita. Unfortunately the majority of these games have not been getting the greatest reception from the critics. Not many have been bad, most likely due to the multitude of cool features the Vita has to offer, but on the other hand, not many games have been awesome enough to make consumers feel the urge to go out and buy the $300 system.
But there is hope for the Vita on the horizon, and it will be leaping down from the rooftops with hidden blades at our throats before we know it.
