Good to know! I assume the same will be said about the PS3 in 2011 but this time not just in Japan ;)

Well we had MGS: Peace Walker, Valkyria Chronicles 2, Phantasy Star 2, and several other solid PSP games. Not to mention the fact that Monster Hunter Portable 3rd launched in Japan in November....yeah...I'm sure THAT didn't boost sales.

Monster Hunter launched in December but the PSP did have a great line up this year but was overlooked everywhere except Japan. Good job Sony.

Not to mention all the PSone classics like Metal Gear Solid, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy's and so on.

Congrats to Monster Hunter and PSP. Who would have thought a 3rd party game would be the ultimate systen seller for a Sony console. Sony has the most first studios in all gaming, and the fanboys like to tell us that is why people buy the PS brand. Please explain this one.

Exclusives are just icing (plenty at that) on the cake. Would you prefer not to have them? Is that why you love the 360 so much? Jeez!

Please keep trolling, man. I yearn for the day you lose that last bubble and forced to deal with being a one bubble troll. You used to be a little more fair on your comments, but as of late you've been on a rampage against Sony. Did Kevin Butler crap in you cereal or something? lol

We all know that anything can be twisted to make positives look like a negative.

Darn right. I just bought a psp a few months back but I've been keeping entertained with Kingdom Hearts birth by sleep, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, and Valkyria chronicles 2.

but but but... they said PSP is dead.
Oh wait.

Baka-akaB3244d ago

well last i heard america = no even > the world .

Besides since when does it matter that you sold more than 60 million hanheld consoles , made a profit and got some million selling games ? What matters is that Nintendo is wiping the floor with you ...

Seriously , many need some better perspective on the whole market

The DS has graphics lower than PS1 no wonder PSP is doing well.
If you disagree show me better graphics on DS than Resident Evil 3.

NeoBasch3244d ago

I can't wait 'til the PSP overtakes the Game Boy Advance in terms of overall sales. Let them try telling us the PSP failed then. PSP is at the very least 65 million units strong, probably more so now. The GBA managed to shift 82 million units during its lifetime. Sony has successfully managed to split the market, I wouldn't be surprised if they overtake Nintendo's home turf with the PSP2.

It's the games. The games that make the PSP successful in Japan aren't popular in the US.
