Reuters reports that according to Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai, PlayStation Vita sales are meeting expectations but still lacking in certain regions although he had not mentioned on which regions sales are slower.

Hirai told Reuters at the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (“Berlin Radio Show”), Europe’s largest industrial trade show, “Worldwide, the Vita is pretty much along where we would expect it to be, maybe trending behind in certain territories.”

Sony has high hopes for its PlayStation Mobile gaming service, with Hirai said, “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. You need to look back 5, 10 years for these platforms to tell whether they are successful.”
