    PS4 Launch Boosts PS Vita Sales

    Not surprised by this story but it's good news for the Vita

    The PlayStation 4's launch resulted in a significant boost in PlayStation Vita sales, Videogamer reports.

    Vita sales increased by 68 percent the week of the PS4 launch, and 65 percent the following week, according to MCV magazine. Although Sony didn't release any specific sales numbers, it did attribute the sales bump to the company's new console: The Vita can be used as a second screen for the PS4.

    "PS Vita sales wise we are continuing to see strong week-on-week growth since our latest campaign kicked in," Ben Law, senior project manager, said. "The new TV advert went live this week and we've already seen amazing feedback from PS4 owners on the Remote Play feature, and the success of Tearaway highlights what [a] great proposition PS Vita is, either as a standalone device or as the perfect companion to PS4."

    The PS Vita recently reached its second birthday. Although the platform turned heads with its reveal in 2011, it's been struggling consistently since its release, leading Sony to include PSP sales in reports, in an effort to mask the Vita's struggles.

    I never thought i would buy a vita, But PS+, Tearaway and Remote play did it for me last week. Best decision made.
    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    sure that's good but percentages are relative terms. that's why i don't care about them. if sony made this statement, it's just PR.

    in the end, i feel that they made a mistake with the price and for that alone, the thing will never be as successful as the 3DS and who knows if it will even catch up with the PSP. it should...PSP did ok but it took a long time for it to get there (in handheld cycle).

    One of the stores that's most likely to have PS4 in-stock is Newegg, who will only sell it in bundles that they made, and one of the cheaper bundles is a PS4+Vita bundle. So Newegg played their part in increasing Vita sales.

    Not surprised. Hell, I want to buy a PS4.. just can't really bring myself to actually buy it. Is it worth it?

    Do you mean a PS4 or a Vita?

    Vita is on my list as a purchase for early next year, really want it for remote play but it will get used for games and other things as well!

    Remote play obviously playing a factor in this.

    Wonder how popular the Vita and PS4 bundles are and if that had any bearing on Vitas increased sales

    PS4 Launch Boosts PS Vita Sales

    Now all they need to add is DS4 support, and then we will have a portable PS4 anywhere.

    I had a Vita and sold it, but now I wish I had it back for the remote play thing. Maybe I'll get it again in the future.

    I will never understand those who complain bout the Vita's price, Nintendo had to slash the 3DS price as the Vita was going to retail at the same price & it wasn't selling the best.. But now once again & has been for awhile, you can pick up a Vita for the same price as a 3DS.

    3DS is the real rip off hardware wise, I wouldn't buy one for the price Nintendo wants as how they price stuff
