Sony Computer Entertainment has forecasted sales of its PlayStation Vita to reach 10 million by the end of the current fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2013. Andrew House, SCE CEO told Reuters in an interview which was translated by Andriasang, that in order to reach its goal it plans on releasing a line up of blockbuster games this holiday season, as well as strengthening its online offering.
House did admit that the PlayStation Vita will not be a contributor to earnings for Sony’s games business in any major way. He said the PlayStation 3 will provide a lot more profits than the PlayStation Vita.
On a side note, Reuters asked House about the successor to the PlayStation 3. House responded with “I have nothing to say about next generation hardware. We believe that through games like [The Last of Us, Wonder Book and Beyond], we can show that PlayStation 3’s future is strong.”
