Sony not talking Vita sales

No exact numbers in Q1 report
Sony released its Q1 financial report, and while the numbers are not good one number that you will not find in it is the sales numbers for the PlayStation Vita. Sony has not released the sales figures for the handheld and apparently has no plans to do so.
It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that the decision not to make the numbers public does not speak well for the sales of the unit. The sales numbers are down across the board for everything, so the Vita alone isn’t the only bad spot in Sony’s report.
While the numbers were not as high as the company expected, Sony says that they expect sales to remain “flat” between now and the end of the year. Analysts that we spoke to seem to agree with Sony’s assessment of the situation, but are holding out hope that things will improve a bit this holiday season; but that remains to be seen.
