PSP Dog Days Sales Looking Good

As the PSP enters the dog days of its life, it has just had a might kick with the launch of Monster Hunter Portable 3 in Japan. Even the PSPGo is selling 5,000 a week, up from its usual 1,000+. And with 3rd Birthday selling 14o,000 copies in its first week, a PSP dating game selling 250,000, it looks like there is plenty of life for it back home.

Over in the west, well, the sooner we get the PSP2, the better. A bigger, better, store, more relevant games and some decent marketing cannot come soon enough. You just have to hope that Sony Japan sees the weakness over here and gets a wiggle on, not basking in its success back home - this could be the one advantage of having a westerner in charge of Sony!
