Holy sh****t that was fast!!
impressive but not surprising. Handhelds are far more demanded than consoles in Japan, and Sony's largest market is Europe(which, in case you've been wondering, is why they've been getting all the collector's editions and better ps plus updates recently).

Wonder what all those people who said the handheld market would die this year are saying now.

How many Wii's and PS2's sold in 6 years compared to the PS3? I won't even bother asking about the Xbox or Xbox 360.
