Sony Slim PSP 1m Sales

Sony's recently introduced slim PSP has crossed the one million sales mark in Japan faster than the original, the company has revealed today. The new version, which is about 19 percent thinner and 33 percent lighter than the original, reached the figure in just two months after its September 20th release in its home country. The original launch system needed an additional two weeks for the same amount, Sony says. Figures for the North American version are unavailable, though it should also be faring well.

The news confirms an apparent resurgence for the PSP, which has often suffered in sales compared to the less expensive Nintendo DS. The sleeker PSP was designed in part to appeal to users outside of Sony's familiar dedicated gamer audience, such as women or casual users who may use the PSP as a music and video player in addition to its original game role.
