Sony sells 70 million PSPs ahead of Vita launch

Sony has used E3 2011 and the launch of the PlayStation Vita to highlight the worldwide sales of what will be its predecessor, the original Sony PlayStation Portable. First launched in December 2004, the handheld console has now gone on to sell 70 million units up until the end of April this year. Its library of 3,200 UMD titles has also shipped over 298 million software units.

While its sales have dipped significantly in the US over the past few years, it has still been selling strongly in its homeland. In April, over the course of one week it notched up 58,075 sales in Japan versus the recently launched Nintendo 3DS, which only managed 42,979 sales over the same period.
