Especially considering there are not that much girl-oriented games on PSP (compared to DS). So it's quite surprising, indeed.

^ I laughed about it too. Hannah Montana bundles was weird for me and thought it'd never sell. Guess, Sony knows how to please.

I really want a red PSP Go.

Wrong if the 52% of psp owners were female the psp games should be selling way more.

Didn't know this. Never expected it. I thought it would be mostly young male kids. Guess not. This is great news for Sony btw. It means they are starting to get through the huge, huge female market that spends the most.
