Sony has so far sold roughly 2.2 million units of the PS Vita. While this has been behind some analyst estimates, Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai says that the PS Vita isn’t in a bad spot for the company.

“Worldwide, the Vita is pretty much along where we would expect it to be, maybe trending behind in certain territories,” Hirai told Reuters on the sidelines of IFA, Europe’s biggest consumer trade show, held in Berlin.

“Back in 2006-2007 people were saying PlayStation 3 is not happening, it’s dead, but today it’s a great platform, contributes bottom line to us,” Hirai said. “You need to look back 5, 10 years for these platforms to tell whether they are successful.”
