Take into consideration that many times in Japan, when something new/updated is released there's a large segment of the population that just upgrades. This does not actually reflect potential new users, but rather users who want to replace their DS lite. The best guage of new users would be to see if older games sell more or if newer games sell more.

This isn't the first time, check the stats from last year when the PSP-2000 was released, you'll see a spike in sales too.

Hah I saw this coming, but Dissidia is coming up so the tug of war will continue.

I hope so.No point in having the PSP around if Sony won't even compete with it.

Maybe that will get Sony working on getting some games for it during the holidays.Star Ocean 1 was good and I heard LA Remix is ok but Sony dropped the ball on that one.Not to mention the PSP still not getting a 2nd analog stick and Sony talking to Capcom about Devil May Cry for PSP.I like the PSP but the lack of support on it is getting annoying.

Monster Hunter Unite will be good but I have never seen a commercial of any MH games here in the US and if Sony doesn't make a deal with Capcom,they might just pull out of the PSP support in America/Europe for good
