PS Vita Sees 56 Percent Sales Jump In U.S., Sells 60,000 Units

PS Vita Sees 56 Percent Sales Jump In U.S., Sells 60,000 Units

PS Vita isn’t only seeing a rejuvenation in Japan, the console’s also proving prolific in the west, more specifically the U.S., selling over 50,000 for the week ending March 9th, and that’s without a strong game and price cut, unlike Japan.

Sony is expected to announce a price cut anytime this year, and with recent rumors that a new Assassin’s Creed game is underway, prospects for the fledgling console are looking good indeed.
