PSP still ruling the roost in Japan

Not even the 3DS can unseat the PSP out East

Despite the announcement that Sony has discontinued production of the PSPGo in Japan the PSP remains the top-selling console in Japan by a long way.

The PSP shifted well over twice the volume of units of its nearest rival, Nintendo's new kid on the block the 3DS.

Over the last week, even with Japan still in the early stages of a recovery from the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear incident, the PSP sold almost 77,000 units compared to the 3DS which shifted nearly 28,000 units in the same period.

This was also a massive jump on the previous week's sales of just over 49,000 units.
