Vita sales up 25% since PS4 launch

Sony's Tokyo Games Show conference has wrapped in Japan, with the company claiming a boost in sales of some 25% for the Vita since the PlayStation 4 launched. Quite what that means in real numbers we'll only find in Sony's financial results, now it has stopped selling the PSP it can't hide the Vita's numbers.

I'll start digging out any TGS game news in-between real-world commitments. In other news, Sony as a company is still struggling. Now dragged down by its mobile unit, which seemed to be doing okay!

PlayStation Vita sales in Japan seem to be ticking along fine, substantially up on previous years, so it is the west that Sony is worried about, and all but given up on. One way it is trying to get developers on board is through Unity which has just gone free for PlayStation licensed developers. That should help get more indie and mobile games over, but Sony can't get big developers interested with Ubisoft reportedly dumping any (imminent) plans for a future Assassin's Creed game.
