Uber-duper tipster, striegs, keeps the stuff coming. It looks like things are staying interesting in the PSP vs. DS
world. Sony is off to a strong start, but it'll take a lot of sales to catch up to DS. Yes, things are more complicated
than just following the horse-race, but we all love numbers. Ultimately, the better they both do, the better off we
are. Striegs has an interesting take on it all:
Spong is reporting that the PSP has surpassed the Nintendo DS in terms of hardware sales (for this week only, I presume), stating that the PSP moved 64,600 units, while the DS moved 53,500 units. And that's not counting exports. However, all is not bleak for Nintendo's resilient little handheld, as WarioWare DS and Mario 64 DS respectively hold the fourth and seventh spots on the Japanese sales charts, while Everybody's Golf Portable and Dynasty Warriors for the PSP ranked eighth and tenth. The fact that so many people have already bought the DS might explain the hardware discrepancy, and the fact that the PSP is so young might account for the software discrepancy. However, it is notable that a golf game and a Dynasty Warriors game garnered a place on the software charts over Ridge Racer and Lumines, the as-of-yet most acclaimed PSP titles out. Could it be because everyone with a PSP already owns both games?
