This may not be the best of weeks for you fanboys out there to go spouting off against the Nintendo fanboys. The DS Lite spanked the PSP in hardware sales from July 17 through 23 by outselling it by 226,515 units. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!

- DS Lite: 262,453 121,595 (86.32%)
- PSP: 35,938 655 (1.86%)
- PS2: 22,288 1,639 (6.85%)
- DS Phat: 6,344 5,477 (46.33%)
- GBA SP: 2,953 334 (12.75%)
- Xbox 360: 1,472 367 (33.21%)
- Game Boy Micro: 1,410 171 (10.82%)
- Gamecube: 1,076 148 (15.95%)
- GBA: 20 8 (28.57%)
- Xbox: 0 10 (100.00%)

Hey, at least the PSP outsold the regular DS, right? It will be interesting to see, however, if the new firmware upgrade or the additions of Bleach, Ultraman and Bomberman to the PSP library help raise sells next week. If you really want to have a laugh, look at the Xbox's sales. Yeah, that's right zero!
