Sony's PlayStation Vita has sold over 1.2 million units worldwide, following its launch in the U.S. and Europe last week.

The device surpassed this figure as of February 22, having already launched in Japan last December, thanks to "strong demand" said Sony in a statement.

The company also revealed that over 2 million software units have been sold at retail and via the PlayStation Network combined.

It should be noted that these are sales of units to customers, rather than shipping numbers to retailers.

Andrew House, president of Sony Computer Entertainment, said of the news, "PS Vita was designed to deliver the ultimate portable entertainment experience, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the reaction we're seeing from consumers and the pace at which PS Vita is selling."

He added that there is "clear demand" for the device, and that the company plans to sustain sales momentum by working closely with third-party developers.
