The PlayStation 4’s recent launch in the UK may not have been a success just for the new home console – MCV reports that sales of Sony’s Vita handheld rose by 68 percent during the PS4’s launch week, rising again by 65 percent for the following week. Senior Product Manager Ben Law said that Vita sales are “continuing to see strong week-on-week growth since [Sony’s] latest campaign kicked in.” Law also pointed to Tearaway and the Remote Play feature as incentives for gamers to purchase a Vita “either as a stand-alone device or as the perfect companion to PS4.”
