Sony Wows Competitors with These PlayStation Vita Stats

Sony (NYSE:SNE) has sold more than two million of its PlayStation Vita game consoles since its U.S. release last week. Strong sales of the Vita exceeded Sony’s expectations despite competition from rival, Nintendo.

Only 50,000 PlayStation Vitas were sold following the Vita’s Japanese launch in December, making the company’s American success all the more surprising. Sales numbers are expected to soar as Vita hits shelves worldwide, particularly in Latin America, Europe, and Singapore.

Here’s how Sony’s stock closed the day:
