SonyAccording to the details in the report, Sony sold a total of 1.4 million handhelds in the first quarter (April 1, 2012 – June 30, 2012), and during the same time period, 5.8 million units of software were sold across both handhelds.

SCE also reduced their forecasted sales expectations, initially Sony planned to sell 16 million PSP and PS VITA during fiscal year, this figure now reads as “12 million”.

“Primarily due to the lowering of the annual unit sales forecast for portable hardware, sales are expected to be significantly lower than the May forecast. Due to the above-mentioned decrease in sales and the impact of unfavorable exchange rates, operating income is expected to be significantly below the May forecast. Sales are expected to be essentially flat and operating income is expected to decrease significantly year-on-year.”
