Sony CEO and president Kaz Hirai
says the PlayStation Vita is performing near expectations overall, but that it's "maybe trending behind in certain territories." Earlier this month, Sony revealed
the Vita hit 2.2 million sales worldwide. Hirai, speaking to Reuters
at Berlin's IFA conference, declined to reveal which territories he referred to.
His statement follows news
earlier this year of Sony cutting 10,000 jobs, that following a projection for the company's biggest ever yearly loss: $6.4 billion. While the Vita's sales may compare harshly to those of the 3DS, Sony's games division apparently isn't the root
of the company's problems.
