Sony chief executive officer Kazuo Hirai, spoke with Reuters at IFA. He talked about the PlayStation Vita and how sales for the handheld have been near expectations. He also compared the slow start of the PlayStation Vita to the PlayStation 3.
“Worldwide, the Vita is pretty much along where we would expect it to be, maybe trending behind in certain territories,” Hirai told Reuters at the IFA.
“Back in 2006-2007 people were saying PlayStation 3 is not happening, it’s dead, but today it’s a great platform, contributes bottom line to us. You need to look back 5, 10 years for these platforms to tell whether they are successful,” Hirai added.
