Sony sent out a press release today flaunting the PSP's sell-in numbers in Japan. The portable gaming behemoth has sold over 10 million units since its inception on December 12, 2004. That's numbers for both PSP-1000 models and the slimmer PSP-2000 models.

Also, in addition to the number crunching, Sony has stated that Japan will get a Metallic Blue PSP bundle on sale July 17, as well as a Metallic Blue PSP 1 Seg Pack. "SCE will vigorously promote PSP as a new handheld entertainment system to enjoy a variety of digital entertainment content by enhancing network capabilities and interoperability with PlayStation 3."
