The PSP will sell for another two year. There is still +-1 year left till NGP releases.

I think it will hit a lifetime of 75-80 million total sales.

I'm not sure but I think PSP sells like 9 to 10 million a year?

But I doubt it'll sell much more elsewhere

@Doctor strange....are you kidding? now with the ngp coming out soon older psp models in shops will drop in price very soon, getting me the psp go when its cheap enough

didnt you hear most media think that 64 million sold is a failure/s

retards i tell you lol

Exactly

The psp is the only handheld that's gone toe to toe with a nintendo handheld and lived to tell the tale.

Let's hope the psp2 has some insanely good security so pirates can't mess up sales for developers like they did with the psp.

Yeah, its a double standard, especially seeing as how I believe that the 360 will have trouble reaching that milestone. But if the 360 does sell 64 million units, Pachter will call it a huge success.

How many owners actually buy the games, though?

^ this, hoping this next iteration will solve it all, I myself won't be planning in hacking or installing any homebrew no matter how good the chance of playing ps2 isos on homebrew are now that UMD is gone, plus hope sony pulls a good mechanism on the anti-piracy topic this time, cus really, that was what indeed killed the psp.

Piracy = Less support but + Units sold...

Units + Games = Selling point...eat them sony...fcking eat them

Freshnikes2492d ago

I buy all my games, too. In fact, I just picked up YS Chronicles 7.

I still have 5 more games on pre-order.
