10 million PSPs shipped worldwide Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that the total figure of PlayStation Portable (PSP) consoles shipped worldwide has reached 10M, making it the fastest selling PlayStation gaming product yet. The console went on sale first last December in Japan, then March in North America and September in Europe. North America sits on the top spot for the greatest number of PSP shipments.
4.5 million PSPs were shipped in North America, followed by 3 million in Japan and 2.5 million in Europe. 183 official software titles were available for the PSP by September this year and the total shipments of games for the PSP so far is 19.6 million units. Sales of the console should stay strong through the holiday season, for which Sony has announced the PSP Giga Pack.

Well those of us who own a psp should be the ones to care b.c the more people buy the psp the more diff companies and developers will support the psp with games and other new developments. Stop hatin on sony man. I would like to congratulate sony for their success with the psp so far as many said it would be a failure but it has shown already to have more uses than sony ever intended for the system. I got a NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, and plenty of other systems and they are all portable with a brilliant LCD screen. But then again who cares????

"who cares?" Evidence of an ignorant fan boy. Congratulations to Sony for this achievement. I wouldn't have thought the PSP would be Sony's fastest selling product, would've guess the the PS1.

where did that come from

"10 million PSPs shipped worldwide" Just because they have shipped 10 million doesn't mean they have sold as many.

I understand what you are saying but it does also say that it is the fastest selling Playstation product yet so they could be referring to sales. It is confusing though and i admit i am not sure exactly which of the two they meant.
