PSP-2000 hits 300,000 sales in Japan

Assisted by strong sales of the Crisis Core edition of the PSP lite, the system has sold 300,000 units in Japan since its staggered launch. According to Enterbrain, 250,752 units sold following the official launch on Sept. 20 and 75,943 of the Crisis Core edition sold since its release a week earlier. All this is sure to be reflected in the Japanese hardware sales chart at the end of this week. Apparently PSP sales are now in excess of 25 million globally.

It may have taken a while, but the PSP is really coming into its own. There's a decent library of games with some solid looking titles coming out soon. We hope to see more connectivity between the PS3 and PSP, but the future looks bright for handheld.
