The latest Media Create hardware sales figures are in from Japan and the PSP managed to outsell the Wii! Impressive.
It also outsold the new PS3.
PS3 is not even a handheld device. So it doesnt matter.
....seriously though. Good news. The PSP has become a really great system that never gets the credit it deserves. Time to take notice.....and time for a juicy price cut! No less than $50 i'd say.
Microsofts handheld ...wait a mo ..they don't have 1 lol
in trying to start arguments? cos if we wanted to we could say oh look in UK the PS3 isnt even out yet, but then there would be Sonyfanboys jumping at the chance to argue! so please dont start! its not like anyone said there was a handheld device from Microsoft, so your comment is a total waste! Also i want to state this is good news, if more people buy it then hopefully more/better games will come out for it, and that means more games for my PSP lol
when you actually have some in the store to sell compared to the other.
www.vgcharts.org Handhelds have been seriously dominating for a while now. I, personally, dont get it. I have one, of course, but I buy WAY fewer games for the thing. It is more like an expensive book. If you need proof that HD graphics dont matter, there is your proof. - DS Lite: 108,512 - PSP: 56,175 - Wii: 44,494 - PS3: 32,115 - PS2: 14,585 - Xbox 360: 3,333 - Game Boy Micro: 812 - GBA SP: 679 - Gamecube: 240 - DS Phat: 119 - GBA: 13 Edit: BTW, what is with these numbers? They dont look accurate or logical to me.
PSP rocks, so does wii but I have far more games for my portable.
and i'm one happy PSP owner amongs them, but i would be even more happyer, if they would implement another analog stick!!!
grief...haha Shame on people who say the psp sells poorly. Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core is the psp game in my sights
That game is going to cause BOOM in sales of PSP, especially in Japan. Mark my words! And of course many other great games that are yet to be released on PSP in this year.
"1.1 - PS3 is not even a handheld device. So it doesnt matter" since when is Wii a handheld? ......................... btw isnt there a wii shortage?
maybe as an offspin to all of the GDC hoopla and usurping as of late, there is an undercurrent of those consumers going back HOME®. :P kidding.lol
are in love with handhelds. Sony's not doing a bad job with the PSP for their first crack at this. When that FF7 game gets released on the PSP, there will probably be a hefty increase in PSP sales (obviously not enough to overtake the DS though).
oi you brain dead mutha fukers you cant handle any good news for sony you wankers.
thats good and all but it was also outsold by the DS lite, and their are 7 Nintendo products on that list lol...look how sad the 360 did tho, haha 3,333? thats so pathetic, geesh
Think about all the people who dont own one due to the high price and lack of AA titles, when one of these things are somewhat corrected (2-3 good games in a row) sales were bound to increase. you will see the same effect if the price drops.
The ps3 also outsold the ps2 by double! That has to be a good sign right? Different story in the US though. I wonder what it will be like in Europe in a month or so. At this rate though all the best games are going to be released at christmas. Typical Sony - they did it with the ps2, all the good games came out the Christmas after. There will be so many reasons to own one at the end of the year. Games. I'm jealous of everyone who has a next-gen console hmph.
Sure, I played the MGS2 demo for like 5 months, but the wait was so worth it.
lol @ this
i said : "1.1 - PS3 is not even a handheld device. So it doesnt matter" since when is Wii a handheld? ......................... and one disagreed with me, really if you think Wii is a handheld then you are a freaking moron XD
PSP and custom firmware is why it's doing so well... I actually just got one again.
