PlayStation 4’s launch has had a positive impact on PS Vita sales, according to Sony.

MCV reports that Sony has flagged a 68% in PS Vita sales for the week after PS4 launched, then rising a further 65% the week after that.

In a statement, senior product manager Ben Law said, “PS Vita sales wise we are continuing to see strong week-on-week growth since our latest campaign kicked in. The new TV advert went live this week and we’ve already seen amazing feedback from PS4 owners on the Remote Play feature, and the success of Tearaway highlights what an great proposition PS Vita is, either as a stand-alone device or as the perfect companion to PS4.”

PS Vita has been bigged up by Sony as a companion device for PS4, and has bundled the handheld with Media Molecule’s critically-acclaimed platformer Tearaway.
