PSP Slim Sells Over A Million in Japan 39

GameDaily reports that Sony has had a lot of success with the PSP Slim in Japan, with sales of over a million units since its launch in September of this year. That's more units sold than the original PSP did in its several-year-long lifespan. "Titles such as Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and Monster Hunter in particular have helped boost Sony's portable in Japan. Sony is maintaining a sales forecast of 10 million units worldwide by the end of its fiscal year next March. The portable sector is still dominated by the Nintendo DS, however. Nintendo is aiming to sell 28 million units of its handheld by the end of its fiscal year."

    FTA: "The PSP slim model (which is lighter, thinner and features video out capabilities) reached this milestone two weeks faster than the original PSP nearly three years ago."

    FTS: "That's more units sold than the original PSP did in its several-year-long lifespan."

    The summary is blatantly stupid. It only took the original model -2 more weeks- than this model. Demand has not increased all that much, considering the considerable user base and available games.

    " have an old one and I really really hate the screen."

    I've read reviews of the new one and they say the screen is the same. For that reason alone I wouldn't bother buying the slim.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
