PSP winning in the US?
While Nintendo is selling more units of its DS portable worldwide (at 21 million shipped), Sony's PSP is trouncing the DS in Europe and North America, says Pocket Gamer. Sony leads with 6.7 and 8.2 million units respectively, in contrast to Nintendo's 6.1 and 5.9. The bulk of DS sales have been in Asia, where there are 9.2 million units. There are only 5.2 million PSPs in that region. Things become a bit more complicated when it comes to software sales; Sony boasts of 56 million titles sold worldwide (25 million in North America), but it's unknown how many of those might be UMD movies. Nintendo sold 18 million games between April and June 2006, 4.4 million of which were bought in North America.
