Sony will sell 15m PlayStation 3 consoles by the end of March 2012, the consumer electronics giant has insisted.

That was the target the company set itself for its current financial year, which ends next spring, and it'll be met, said Sony Computer Entertainment chief Andrew House this week.

House claimed that PS3 sales were going better than expected.

However, he wouldn't be drawn by reporters to state Sony's target for PS Vita sales. The successor to the PlayStation Portable goes on sale in Japan this weekend, but doesn't arrive here until late February 2012. ®
