Sony's new PSP selling faster than original in Japan
Sales of Sony's new PlayStation Portable in Japan have topped 1 million in just two months, hitting the milestone two weeks sooner than the original PSP did three years ago. The updated model is smaller and lighter than its predecessor, and is available in pink to attract female gamers.
Sony's handheld has been struggling to compete with Nintendo's DS, which has become the fastest-selling gaming device in history. Nintendo released two new DS bundles last week to further shore up holiday sales, and expects to sell 28 million units for the fiscal year ending in March. Sony, meanwhile, is forecasting sales of 10 million PSPs over the same time period.
