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.
