They keep games like these coming then I'll keep getting them. pretty simple concept. I've been surprise by the PSP's sales monthly when they aren't really putting out any games. Now that they are supporting the system more it can only do better.

hahaha, PSP will outsell DS?

i own both the DS (original and i want DSI) and the PSP 2000

the only reason i got my PSP is to hack it so i can play games like FF7... as for the PSP library, GOD OF WAR was about it.. the GTAs are fun but meh...

PSP sold 50 million units cause of HOMEBREW and hacked units.. the games coming look good and all but Nintendo is killing it with the DS.. DS prints money..

the gameboy has been around a long time and i know the the DS sales were included in this even though DS dropped the GAMEBOY logo, the last real gameoy is the GAMEBOY ADVANCED SP.. which i own as well.
its sad though that the MAN THAT CREATED THE GAMEBOY quit DISGRACED after his vision of the VIRTUAL BOY was a massive failure.

They messed up the PSP because of the UMD (UNIVERSAL MEDIA DEVICE MY ASS) sucked and battery had nothing on the DS..

the PSP is great but even myself i have not picked it up since DECEMBER.. maybe when i go back to school i'll use it during travel and to get online at school but the PSP is lack luster in terms of games right now.. after GT and LBP we can say otherwise.. though FLATOUT was pretty well done on PSP and so was the BURN OUT..

why are you saying it will outsell the DS while the article makes no mention of it outselling the DS? or did you not read the article at all?

of course the PSP won't outsell the DS. The article points out that the PSP will, over it's lifespan, outsell the Gameboy, which quite frankly, it will most likely do. The PSP has over 50 millions units sold as of now, the gameboy about 120 million. The PSP however, is still selling while the gameboy is obviously discontinued in most parts of the world.

The DS sales were not included in the gameboy sales mentioned by the article. The DS has already reached the 100 million milestone, and will most likely beat the gameboy in a few months or years.
