lol it proablly wont but its only been out 2 years and will easily break 100 million in its lifetime. The PSP is now selling very well... better than the Wii.

smoothdude3612d ago

Do you mean the PSP has sold more than the Wii? I am not sure how it is selling better, because Wii is outselling everything right now.

Bull5hifT3612d ago

yes 25,000,000 PSPs sold and 11- 13 million wii sold

who sold more?

smoothdude3610d ago (Edited 3610d ago )

oh, I thought that you meant monthly sales. It won't take the Wii long to overtake the psp if you consider that the psp has already been out for a while, in fact, if the Wii continues to sell like it is now it will have the psp beat next year.

I do prefer the PSP over the DS though. Games for the PSP are more satisfying, with the exception for Zelda Phantom Hour Glass.

i think PSP and DS are two fine handheld gadget.

I got PSP and am keen to get DS.

They are both good, I have both, but had a PSP first so always wanted to go to the other side. The DS has a lot of games, but a lot of them are just flash games you can get for PC, but that isn't my problem with it.

Once you get used to the PSP XMB and you get a DS you realise how good the PSP actually is, the DS seems so primitive compared to the PSP firmware. When you get one you will understand, it's got some great games like Zelda and Advance Wars etc though.

I do admit that the multimedia capabilities and graphics for the psp is much better, but if you want games the ds will keep you busy.

Doesn't make either less good does it?
DS is just too far ahead, but for Sony's first outing on a handheld it's not bad.

Demorus3613d ago

i agree, it is the 5ft handled console for Nintendo (if i count the SP edition) and the first for Sony and i know more people that have a DS but i never see them playing and and i see those who have a PSP playing with

socomnick3613d ago

I got a ds I might get a psp only for homebrew.

Well, kind of obvious. The DS's lead is way to big. But the PSP doesn't need to overtake the DS to be a success so it shouldn't matter too much to Sony. And both handheld's can co-exist. I own a DSLite and will buy a PSP whenever Crisis Core gets localized here.
