UK PSP sales hit all time low...

UK sales charts show an astonishing drop off in software sales for Sony's PlayStation Portable this week. However, even though Sony had record lows, the company is still on pace to have a huge portable console sales year. In retrospect the waning numbers over the past two to three weeks could hurt bottom line dollars for the old PSP, but it's nothing that Sony cannot overcome.
PSU would speculate that the drop in sales was due to the new PSP Slim and Lite (or PSP-2000 in North America) getting ready to ship next week. With updated starter packs, slimmer shape, and new colors, the slim PSP should not only boost the sales back to normal, but also give Sony a new edge. The Slim and Lite version will surely help household penetration rate and in turn help game sales, peripheral sales, and Sony's profits.
Keep a watch on PSU for more information on the slimmer, lighter PSP come September 14th and of course breaking news from around the gaming industry.

actually blachaze, Harlequin1987, PSP has tons of great games now. Yea, PSP had a slow start but PSP has been gaining momentum over the past year now. There are LOTS of good games coming out for PSP. I've got over 80 PSP games and a lot of them are great. So, b4 you guys open your mouth, please...get your facts straight.

Well i can tell you for a fact that one of the reasons sales are low is because there just aren't any PSP's to buy. I know, i just tried to buy two for my daughter and it is tougher than Vindalood mutton. Couple that with the fact that people would rather wait for the slim and that Sony has been phasing out the old,.

Well I have been in the market for a PSP..but decided to wait for the new one.. So I think it is only natural.
