Tales of Zestiria and Persona 5 will help that push to beat PSP



It should be able to catch up to the PSP pretty easily, and relatively soon. It's weekly software numbers have been good, and it still has quite a few big Japanese titles coming.



Does the award go to GTA V for being the final game that pushed it over the edge?

I think so too. It probably only needs about 10m more to do it. It did 13m in 2013 and 2012. I can see it doing around 10m this year.

No, MGSV: GZ probably (although it would've happened without both of those)



Nice PS3! It is possible to achieve 80 million software at the end of life cycle in Japan



Congrats PS3!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
