A report out today shows Sony lowering sale projections yet again for it’s struggling Vita (and PSP).
Once upon a time, Sony was predicting sales in the 16 million unit range for their combined handheld gaming empire. That was a relatively short lived figure though, as the hardware giant revised things a bit not that long ago and saw fit to project a lesser figure of 12 million- and now that’s changed yet again.
Sony now shows an estimated units shipped for the dying PSP and the struggling PS Vita to be only around 10 million. That’s a heady drop from that 16 million number.
On the up side, forecasted PS3 numbers haven’t moved. That’s not entirely great though, as they were already seen to be dropping from 4.9 million units shipped last year to 3.5 million this year.
The only good part of all this is that they haven’t dropped any more than was already expected. So if there’s a silver lining to find, that’d be it. Anyone wanna take bets that we’ll see the PS4 announced sooner than later?
