The PSP is outselling the PlayStation Vita by more than 2:1, startling new data has revealed.
Naturally Sony wouldn't announce such a terrible statistic, but CVG has put their maths thinking hat on and deduced the ratio from the official numbers we have been given.
Sony recently confirmed that 2.2 million Vitas have been sold worldwide since launch. The last official number was 1.8 million at the end of March. That means that just 400,000 were sold during the April, May, June quarter.
During that same period, Sony combined the PSP and Vita as "handheld" in its sale figures and revealed that 1.4 million had been sold for the quarter.
That leads us to conclude that the PSP sold 1 million units to the Vita's 400,000 during that last completed quarter, a ratio of more than double in favour of the last generation hardware.
