50m PSPs sold shipped globally, says Sony

There's life in the old gal yet

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Sony has announced that 50m PlayStation Portables (PSP) have now been shipped worldwide.

The figure’s the combined shipment total, correct as of January 2009, for all three generations of PSP: the 1000, 2000 and the troublesome 3000.

It’s worth noting that Sony’s quoted figure is a “sell-in” number. So although the Japanese electronics giant has shipped 50m PSPs to retailers around the globe, the firm isn’t willing to disclose how many have actually been purchased by gamers.

According to recent figures from market watcher GfK Chart Track, the PSP’s installed base in the UK is currently around 3.2m units.

Not that Sony's chief rival need worry. Nintendo has sold over 96m Nintendo DS handheld consoles around the world - almost twice as many as Sony has managed. The Nintendo figure includes DSi sales. ®
