DS lords over PSP in Japan this year

Who's the king???Over at Japan, the fact of the matter is that Nintendo’s DS has all but crushed Sony’s PSP. In November alone, the DS Lite sprinted off the charts with a whopping 550,000 sales, while the PSP limped behind with a lowly 86,000 units sold. Now, we’re not cooking up these numbers.

These were actually the numbers that came from the latest Famitsu Marketing survey. And there’s more. According to the said survey, 7.5 million DS and DS Lites were purchased for the first 11 months of the year. As for the PSP, there were about 1.6 million sold. But it would seem that it is in the arena of software competition that the DS really showed it is the winner hands down. Currently, there are about 2.8 million games sold for the PSP, whereas Nintendo has sold a humongous 27 million copies.

Then again, these are statistics for Japan. In the U.S., Nintendo still appears to have the big lead, although it’s not what you’d call “crushing”. And besides, that’s just really how it goes in the business. You win some, you lose some. It’s just a matter of determining how long you want to be a winner, or how long before you get out of being the loser.

All’s fair in gaming war.
