The latest sales figures are in and the release of the PSP Slim has completely wiped the floor with the competition this week, giving Sony the lead for a second week running. Check out the software list at source, and the early hardware figures.
TWENTY TWENTY cricket world cup fever i should say. BTW x360 sales dropped below 1000 in JAPAN yesssssss grabage box 360 is fully dead in JAPAN and will be dead in EU tomorrow when FIFA 08 hits the ps3. FIFA 08 has knocked HALO 3 from most of the charts in EU
When did FIFA 08 become a PS3 exclusive? And aren't PS3 fans bitter towards EA so probably won't buy FIFA? I don't even know why I'm asking considering you have 1 bubble.
jebus, it sold 270,000 units ay caramba
sweet mother of god psp is rockin japan.
for 2 weeks out of 52? lol
may only be two weeks... but 252k?!!! hell yea psp is rocking the ds!!! however short lived, this definitely shows SE that their products MOVE systems... that's freakin incredible!
What wiped the floor? lol isn't that what the ds has been doing all over the world for years lol stupid article. Someone is happy the failed psp finally sold more than 1000 systems a week, and it's just going to go right back where it was except this will never happen again.
Go play some Nintendogs that should get you happy, happy, bouncy again..
Okay Mrs Cleo! CALL ME NOW FOR YER FREE REEDIN!!!
haha think your confused, thats the 360 in Japan. The psp is actually doing very well is actually been out selling the ps3 some months. Not saying the ps3 is selling too hot either. just imagine if SE releases FF7 remake on the ps3.
The PSP outsold the a DS by a margin of 4 to 1 so you can bet that it's going to outsell the DS through this year or whenever Dragon Quest comes out which is basically the only hardcore game they have coming out. You forgot that when the games that have American appeal such as Castlevania, God of War, and Final Fantasy come out in America, the PSP will start outselling DS here in the U.S.
Aside from a few Dragon Quest titles, the DS will also get the Final Fantasy IV remake before the end of this year.
I helped by buyin one of these, sweet, sweet, hardware miracles. Now i'm officialy playing in all Sony's platforms PS1 on my PSP, PS2 on my PS3, Ps3 and PSP. I am a fanboy, I guess. From My First Walkman to 2day, love those inventive japs!
All nintendo has to do is release a new color ds and its gameover lol
It doesn't even need that. What we're seeing is the amazing power of the Final Fantasy franchise. When the DS gets FF6 (the best one by the standards of most who have played all the FF games), its game over. I suppose a glow-in-the-dark color line of DS to go with that would do anything but hurt, though.
ds might win the sells but you know psp even though it isnt winning its not losing its selling fine. just not the same numbers as ds.
Ah the power of Final Fantasy
Yeah I want to play that game so bad. Can't wait for Chains of Olympus too.
Yep, think I'll be buying one for this game and Daxter.
wow just shows you what will happen once sony starts having thier gaming giant releases.
Is the PSP slim profitable or is it a loss leader still? I truly don't know but if it is profitable, that's great news for Sony...
Congrats to Sony. Looks like a formfactor change was just what the doctor ordered for the PSP.
PSP is ABSOLETELY OWNING the ds!
Im giving a big FU to all the people who said PSP was a failure and that it flopped. Clearly PSP is making the same progression as both PS1 and PS2. They start off slow and end up selling 100 million units plus.
That's the Final Fantasy effect right there. You see it SE? Now bring out FF VII to the PS3 and watch the install base sky rocket ;) I mean, 250k + in ONE week?! Wow :O To the rabid Ninty fanboy: go play Brain Age or whatever other non-game you have been playing lately. Geez, frustrated kids.
Wow Sony stock would go up again pretty soon.
the tech in it is similar to ps2.course ps2 sells for less than psp.sony makes money on every ps2 sold.so it stands to reason that sony makes money on psp hardware as well. and they make royalties on third parties and money on their own games. bring out the hits,and nintendo hits the sh#ts.square knows that any ff release would destroy nintendo and microsoft.so they're trying to keep everything balanced. mag lev.............
265,000? Holy Crap that's a lot.
PSP,PS3 and PS3+ Blu-ray. Go PSP the best hand held in the history of gaming with the best games.
NOTHIN I mean NOTHING beats the gameboy color at it's game hey once the FF7 effect is over things go back to normal
Sony doesn't get nearly enough credit for the PSP. It's a pretty amazing little device, and the potential it brings to the PS3 is overlooked. Remote Play, streaming media.. hell, it can even be used as a controller and second screen.
Finally, I was effing mad to see a Pokemon game outselling Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII AND MGSPO+. Great news indeed.
The power behind Square-Enix very predictable.
