Playstation sales down

Sony has reported a decline in sales for its Playstation 3 console, but hasn't spcified how well its new handheld PS Vita is selling.

The console manufacturer said in its Q1 report that sales of Playstation 2 and Playstation 3 units during the three month period ending in June were 2.8 million, down from 3.2 million sales in the same period last year. 

It also reported that PSP and PS Vita handheld consoles had shifted a combined 1.4 million units during the same quarter,  yet didn't specify what portion of those sales were new Vita units. The absence of this information is notable, considering PSP sold 1.8 million units in the same period last year.

Software sales were also down; PS2 and PS3 game sales slumped by seven million units, while handheld games across the PSP and PS Vita platforms were down by about one million units. Sony's game division also posted an operating loss of $45 million.
