Japan - PSP sales surge thanks to Dissidia: Final Fantasy

Square Enix proves once again just how much of a power player it is in the industry. Dissidia: Final Fantasy is currently the top-selling game in Japan, causing PSP sales to get pumped up even higher than the Wii's. Squeenix pulled off the same feat with the release of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII.

The story is too old to be commented.

You know Dissidia: Final Fantasy is a Squeenix game right? Oh I see you already got "FFVII Crisis Core" another Squeenix game...

I've seen so much Squeenix flip flopers..

Hate Squeenix because it went multi but like the little love they give PSP...which is helping push some hardware.

I see were hating on the DS now down below..lol Keep it up it won't stop the DS sales.

I got both by the way.

ultimolu3550d ago

kewlkat, I don't like the direction Square-Enix is going but does that stop me from enjoying their games?

No.

Do I have to protest their games as well?

Please, stop picking on me. It's annoying.

it's lots of fun. If you can find Burnout Legend and Burnout Dominator, buy it too if you like those kind of games.

I really hope that people will stop buying the DSlite. It is a crap. I bought 2 for my daughters and both got broken at the hinges on the right side by the lights. Result is that they tried to play anyway and the sharp edges of the other hinge cut into the screen cable on both my DS. It is very hard to fix and expensive to. I bought a PSP and it is built to last. I will never ever buy a DSlite again. The PSP is also more powerful with better graphics and a real os and wireless system.
They love it and it is better to hold. Touchscreen would have been nice but it is not neccesary.

Darkseider3550d ago

OK so I ain't the only one with this problem? Two DS and one DS lite and the hinges on the right side have broken on all of them. The units are still playable but I am glad to know it isn't just me or for that matter my kids that keep busting these things. As for the PSP I have 2 in the house an original launch unit and a PSP-2000 which is my daughters. Both are still working great with the PSP-1000 needing only a new battery a few months ago because of reduced battery life.

SpenserTracy3550d ago

Tried to fix it myself but I cannot glue it together, have to buy 2 new bezels or cases, 2 topscreens (cable is not sold separately), a soldering iron and a Tri-wing screwdriver. I have opened it and it is a very idiotic construction with these special screws and other crap. But I will fix it, to darned expensive to just throw away.

Skerj3550d ago

Why do you need to buy a soldering iron? The top screen's ribbon slides into a slot, Deal Extreme is the place to go for everything though. I bought my DS shells and Tri Wing driver for dirt cheap.

SpenserTracy3550d ago (Edited 3550d ago )

I think you have to solder the speaker cables to the screen cable.
I will definetly take a look at Deal Extreme (thanks for the tip), but in Sweden it is hard to find cheap screens and cases, the cheapest screens and cases cost 200 SKR per unit. Maby I have still to find the right store.

By the way, thanks for the support, my bubbles are full so I cannot reply again. Happy new Year.

Skerj3550d ago

Ahh the speakers, yeah I forgot about those. Maybe DX will be able to help you out, they have international shipping. The top screen assembly is here: http://www.dealextreme.com/...
