PSP jousts with the 3DS for the top spot in Japan

Sony's handheld still putting up a good fight

The PSP has bounced back after a strong launch showing by the 3DS in Japan.

Going on PSP-3000 sales alone Sony's handset came in and close second to the new 3DS with 50,479 units sold versus Nintendo's 50,710.

Factoring in the sales for the PSPGo which are a meagre 616 units is just enough to give the PSP the lead over Nintendo's new 3D machine.

The PSP's bounce back may be to do with the release of Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection although it does seem to reflect the console's impressive staying power in Japan.

Thanks Gamasutra.
