That's why Metal Gear Solid 5 is on PSP.
DS may capture the females and the elderly.
but PSP is the most popular platform for males between 10 to 30 in Japan.
If you have read a copy of Japanese Famitsu recently, you would find that there are a lot more coverage about PSP games than DS games.

On numerous occasions, you're going to call the PSP a "dead platform"? I'd understand if it was only selling a couple thousand units a week, but these are big sales.

Oh man. Do ppl understand that DS has sold 30m units in Japan alone? Its over. PSP's been lapped so many times its not even a race anymore. How does crap like this get approved?

The handheld's doing really well, even up against a significantly cheaper competitor, the Nintendo DS.

Don't compare the PSP to DS. Really closing on 60? DS is closing in on history.

there is no logic in comparing PSP to DSI... I think PSP players are more mature and look for more advanced games.
