    Sony CEO says Vita meeting targets, but 'trending behind' in some regions



    Sony CEO and president 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.

    They must have had some low targets.

    I wanted the Vita to do as good as or make up ground on the 3DS.

    Sony should set their sights higher and more ambitious then this.

    As long as their happy or they are just trying to save face I don't think they will ever catch the 3ds

    Probably Japan, letting MH4 go has pretty much sealed Vita in 2nd place now.

    Wouldn't count on it though. We all know Capcom and they wouldn't let a huge series such as MH miss the Vita train. I do recall Capcom saying that there would be a big MH announcement later in the year, so my bet is on MHVita or MH 4 for the Vita.
