Sony PSP Sales Up, Despite the Hype for PS Vita

Okay, didn't see that one coming, Sony PSP sales have shot up by almost half a million from this time last year to 1.8 million for Sony's recent quarter (up 100,000 units on the last quarter), perhaps the price cuts and plentiful cheap games have helped it out.

However, Sony's game sales for the PSP dropped from 9 million to 6 million, possibly because Sony hasn't developed any new games for it recently. Sony's general business operations were affected by the Japanese tsunami and earthquake.

In a similar vein CapCom, saw a drop in game sales, and while Monster Hunter Portable 3 is still selling well, perhaps if they'd released it in the west by now, it would have seen some better numbers.
