1.8 million Vitas getting covered in fingerprints worldwide

Sony has sold 1.8 million PlayStation Vitas, according to CEO Kaz Hirai. The executive announced the latest tally during the company's fiscal earnings call. Gamasutra reports Hirai thinks this is a "good start," but he did say, "We have to reinforce the software area in order to improve the business, that is the basic line."

Hirai added, "This is a very important product indeed for us, and therefore we still have a very high motivation to develop this further. There is no change."

The latest update we had on Vita sales came in late February, where the company stated the portable gaming device had sold 1.2 million units.
