According to the MCV magazine, PS Vita sales rose 68 percent in the PlayStation 4’s launch week and 65 percent the week after – although it is not known how many units this entails.

Sony pins the current success of the handheld on the remote play aspect of the Vita, the second screen abilities and a new marketing campaign. It may also have been due to huge titles releasing this year like Killzone Mercenary and Tearaway.

    But will it keep the momemtum? I doubt it, but hoping so.

      We’re all hoping so. Plenty of new top releases for next year which will alway help!

    I have to admit, I picked up the ps4 recently. Just walked into a department store and I got the basic model with no games.
    Now I have had the Vita since launch and love it and many and I mean many carts for it, imported plenty too from UK and Japan.
    I recently picked up Assassins Creed black flag and never played one before (I have assassins creed 3 liberation for vita too still in shrink wrap) and wanted to see what the fuss is about. Wow the graphics are mind blowing. I only booted up the game and installed the patches and off I went to bed and played it remotely on the vita. I’m 2 hours only into the game, but I can see how remote play is a welcome for me in the house. It’ll allow me to play Skylanders swap force (with my son), and hopefully diablo 3 expansion too since I know blizzard nor Activision have no plans on releasing them on my beloved vita and if they do I’ll by them but until then remote play will be sufficient in the house.
    I now see why others are taking advantage of this setup.

      It really is a great idea although I personally don’t need to use it as much as some would.

      It’s really useful for me too as my partner and I watch TV together in the evening. Now I can avoid missing next gen gaming and fights over the telly 😀
