Well it seems like the PSP is selling like hot cakes. All the better for Sony, as the gadget is on its way to brake all set records. Sony has sold 4,47 million in the US, 3 million in Japan alone and 2,53 million in Europe. Considering the holiday season is about to kick off, maybe we could expect a price drop? But that's just a speculation on my part.

Sony said that the PSP was going to be a piece of hardware that would maintain its original price throughout its lifespan by adding new features to maintain value (or something like that)

I would like to see a $200 base model though (without all the crap), I might get one if I can get it for $200.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Sony Corp. plans to sell between 2.5 million and 3 million PlayStation Portable handheld video game devices in its first North American holiday season, the head of Sony Computer Entertainment America said.

Hirai said the company had sold about 2.3 million PSPs in North America as of the end of September how did they sell 2 million in a month this story is wrong

Sony has shipped 10 million PSPs, not sold them:

October 21, 2005 - Sony Computer Entertainment has, as of October 21st, shipped ten million PSP units worldwide, the company revealed today. This is, according to the company, the "fastest penetration speed" ever for a PlayStation platform.

An impressive number anyway :)

Sony is very deceptive in their numbers. Notice how they only report units SHIPPED. This means units that are literally put on the shelves. This number is very different from actual units SOLD. Go to any Target or mainstream store and you'll see PSP's piled up high. Deceptive eh?

Nintendo on the other hand actually reports units sold as opposed to units shipped which is why on first glance, their numbers appear lower. I appreciate honesty and straightforwardness in this industry and not a misrepresentation of the numbers.

(For the record, I own both, so don't bash me for stating the truth!)
