PSP Can't Stop, Won't Stop Sellin' In Japan

There is no cure for PSP fever in Japan, what with all those massive marquee releases happening overseas. Like... um God of War: Chains of Olympus maybe? Is this just Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G after shocks or are folks just falling in love all over again with the Sony handheld? Regardless of the reason, the PSP comes out on top on this week's Media Create sales chart. Nintendo DS and Wii hold strong, but certainly aren't selling as well as they are in the States.


Even the 360 is holding on to a larger slice of the pie than normal. It's all so confusing!

  • PSP - 56,998
  • Nintendo DS - 48,540
  • Wii - 41,768
  • PlayStation 3 - 12,458
  • PlayStation 2 - 10,405
  • Xbox 360 - 3,807



@Netnavi: They fixed the red ring issues, and as far as I know it's rare for the newer hardware, but yeah the damage is done as far as PR goes.
