This is a Vita

After Sony announced Vita sales of 1.2 million, Pocket Gamer claims the system's UK launch week sales were well below predecessor the PSP.

When PSP launched in the UK in September 2005 it shifted around 185,000 units in its first week. According to Pocket Gamer, Chart-Track figures claim the console sold "around one quarter" of that figure, putting it around the 45,000 mark.

Last year Nintendo claimed it sold 113,000 3DS consoles in two days in the UK, though other estimates put that figure closer to 90,000. If true that Vita has sold less than half that number it's not quite the quick start platform-holder Sony will have hoped for.

Still early days, though.
