I, I, I'm about at a loss for words... Are people wearing jackets in hell right now? O_o
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.
great job Sony they are they only ones that can stand against Nintendo on the handhelds market
Congrats Sony :)
umm so ds about 100 million psp nowhere is sight...psp is dead time for psp 2.
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.
PSP needs it!
Doesn't everyone in japan have a DS by now? I wouldn't make a fuss on the fact that psp outsold ds just that psp sold well.
Now lets look back at Feb's NPD why don't we? PSP 133.4K Nintendo DS 613.2K New Headline: "DSi takes holiday in Japan but still thoroughly kicks the PSP's ass."
