Sony says PS Vita launch sees "overwhelming enthusiasm"

No new sales figures to back up the "high customer satisfaction" rates

Following NPD's February 2012 sales report, Sony released a statement regarding the launch of the PS Vita. No new sales information was released, as Sony merely repeated the 1.2 million PS Vita sales mark reported last week.

"After months of anticipation, the U.S. launch of PlayStation Vita saw overwhelming enthusiasm amongst gamers, resulting in exceptional hardware, software and peripheral sales," said Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director of Corporate Communications at SCEA.

"As reported last week, more than 1.2M PS Vita units have been sold globally since launch. Customer satisfaction rates are very high and momentum will continue as gamers get their hands on a deep lineup of blockbuster titles that take advantage of PS Vita's unique features, including cross-platform play with the PlayStation 3."
