We haven’t received any NPD-related data or software rankings as of yet. Nonetheless, Sony has already sent out a response to January’s report.
Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director of Corporate Communications at SCEA, said the following about the company’s performance last month:
“Following a strong December at retail, PlayStation continued the momentum in January through multi-retailer promotions such as ‘Play Days’ where we saw a 2x lift over forecast in peripheral sales and solid results for the PlayStation 3. February will be a landmark month for PlayStation and the gaming industry with the launch of PlayStation Vita on February 22. Pre-order sales for PS Vita and the launch lineup of 25 titles continue to accelerate as more consumers seek the ultimate in handheld gameplay.”
