Sony's New Slim PSP Is Selling Like Hotcakes

And by hotcakes, I mean the iPhone. The company announced today that it has sold over 500,000 Playstation Portable units in Japan during the two weeks since its debut. Funny thing is, Sony has sold more PSP Slims in the past two weeks than it ever did with the original version of the system. I suppose the emerging pattern of “thinner is better” really applies to technology and sales.

Don’t even think for a second that Nintendo is worried though. 13 million DS handhelds compared to the 500,000 PSPs? Not even close. However, if the PSP stays popular for a few more months, it could at least put a major dent in Nintendo’s sales. Who do you think will end up selling more systems?
