CES 2012: PlayStation Vita Sold Half a Million Units in Japan Says Sony

Today at CES 2012, Kaz Hirai of Sony Entertainment is pleased to reveal today that since launch of the PlayStation Vita in Japan up to January 5th, it sold almost half a million units.

While this is very impressive for almost two weeks of sales, we hope here in North America that the handheld will sell pretty well. With almost 25 launch title available on February 22nd, the Vita is looking to have a slight advantage over the weak launch line up of the 3DS back last year.

Check back with us throughout the week until the launch of Vita in North America for more coverage.
