PSP breaks 10 million sold mark in Japan photo



The last couple of times I visited Japan, it seemed like everyone had a PSP in their face. People play them on the street, listen to them on subway trains, watch them on busses... On the last trip, I wasn't even on the ground for an hour before I saw public PSP gaming. In that instance, it was a gorgeous girl playing Crisis Core. Call me.

I guess that we should be surprised that the island country has just hit the 10 million sold mark for Sony's portable. All of these units were moved between December 12, 2004 and August 24, 2008, says GamesIndustry.biz.

I'd bet that the Monster Hunter franchise sold plenty of titles, especially after seeing Japan's top five PSP games:

  • 1. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G (Capcom)
  • 2. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd (Capcom)
  • 3. Crisis Core - Final Fantasy VII (Square Enix)
  • 4. Monster Hunter Portable (Capcom)
  • 5. Phantasy Star Portable (SEGA)

What do you think the US system seller would need to be? I think we just need to get the porn titles like Japan does.

Review: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc was an intelligent riff on the perils of high school -- you know, if you had thrown a murder mystery in between classes and the principal was a maniacal stuffed animal. Its sequel, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, takes a beleaguered trope and turns it on its head. This is one "trapped on a desert island" story that takes things to another level entirely.more

Ayane from Dead or Alive is in the new Fatal Frame

The Fatal Frame series has always been subtle in its use of sexuality, utilizing an undercurrent of vulnerability and otherworldly intimacy to give players a mix of softness and dread. Some of them play with sexual themes mor...more

Sign me up for 3DS RPG Legend of Legacy

Legend of Legacy sounded pretty good on paper. Honestly, I'm easy ; they had me at '3DS RPG' already. But look at it! Look at that pop-up environmental effect! That music!  Watercolors! Shading! Big heads! The games' &n...more
