Why the PSP?

If we remove playstation console only 4 consoles/handheld outsold PSP and we know wii and ds sold that much because of casuals and those one won't buy another consoles.

I think it's not difficult to sell more then NES which sold 60m but it's more difficult to sell more then PSP



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m

I want to show everyone what a beast the PSP is.

Everything was a beast last gen. The PSP was the slowest of the bunch (which still is no small feat at 80M)!

 

What this thread goes to show is how much of a beast Gen 7 was, and how weak Gen 8 has been so far.



Well the original DS already outsold the PSP.

worst selling hardware of last gen... and its natural son may well be the worst selling harware of this gen too.

your threads are very, very selective.



I'm not really here!

I don't no about that. If Nintendo sells a fusion console it will sell like hot cakes, the business world is volatile so, Microsoft could stop doing future consoles, as could Nintendo and Sony, also a new king could enter the market, That are some possibilities.

This gen, probably. Next gen or beyond? Risky prediction to make. It's practically bound to fail eventually, whether it be next gen or 2-3 decades down the road. Who knows if Sony (or Microsoft or Nintendo) will even still be a contender then?

Xbox One - PS4 - Wii U - PC

I honestly think the 3DS will this generation as long as it is supported for another 3-4 years

Why don't you show PSP struggled to move software and that's why support dried up inspite of great sales? Any significant software sales it had occured early on and dwindled. Frankly, much of PSP's sales are due to piracy.

Global Software by Platform

PS3 1,119,917 (-21%) 882,736,174
X360 760,931 (-5%) 918,455,050
Wii 329,758 (-4%) 896,724,601
PSP 65,649 (-6%) 287,084,941

 

Now its uncertain if X1 will surpass PSP in hardware sales. But I GUARANTEE X1 will trounce PSP in software sales. That's more important than hardware sales because that's what keeps great games coming to a platform.

It certainly didn't take long for the X1 to surpass Vita in hardware and software sales.

So the 3DS doesn't have another 30 million in it? I am actually genuinely asking because I really do not follow handhelds. Perhaps those of you in the know can enlighten me how possible that is or not.

I think not even the PS4 will surpass the PSP. 3ds has at least three more years of life ahead, it may get close or even surpass it, but I personally donīt see that happening.
Anyway... I donīt see a point in comparing a last gen console with current gen. We all know that last gen was a phenomenon that probably will never happen again. Since 2009 consoles sales are down every year and will probably continue to do so.
