According to Sony, the launch of the PS4 boosted the PS Vita sales significantly. The sales of Sony's handheld console increased 68% on the week the PS4 launched, and rose 65% the week after.
"PS Vita sales wise we are continuing to see strong week-on-week growth since our latest campaign kicked in. 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 an great proposition PS Vita is, either as a stand-alone device or as the perfect companion to PS4," said Ben Law, senior product manager.
With the PS Vita's disapointing sales, the launch of the PS4 and the amazing interaction between the two consoles, might be what the handheld needs to make its place in the market.
