PSP ereicht die 50 Millionen Absatzmarke

Wie Sony gestern in einer Pressemitteilung verlauten ließ, wurde von der PlayStation Portable bisher 50 Millionen Einheiten
an den Handel ausgeliefert. Diese Marke wurde demnach im Januar
erreicht, nachdem der Handheld bereits Ende Dezember bei 49,5 Millionen
stand.


In der PR wurde außerdem noch der gesamte Softwareabsatz bekannt gegeben. So konnte Sony bis zum Ende des letzten Jahres fast 200 Millionen Spiele an den Handel bringen und das bei etwas über 2000 Spieleveröffentlichungen.


Offizielle Pressemitteilung:



PSP® (PLAYSTATION®PORTABLE)

SELL-IN REACHES 50 MILLION UNITS WORLDWIDE

PSP continues to take interactive entertainment experiences to new heights



Tokyo, February 13, 2009 – Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI)
today announced that the cumulative worldwide sell-in units of PSP®
(PlayStation®Portable) handheld entertainment system (PSP-1000, 2000
and 3000 series) reached a total of 50 million units(*1) as of January
2009.



As the first handheld platform from the PlayStation® family, PSP made
its debut in December 2004 in Japan, March 2005 in North America, May
2005 in Asian countries and regions, and September 2005 in Europe/PAL
territories. Bringing the innovative entertainment world of
PlayStation® and PlayStation®2 on the go, PSP introduced the latest
advancement in technology for building handheld devices, including a
4.3 inch wide high resolution LCD screen, the largest of its kind for a
portable device. PSP opened up an entirely new gaming market by
offering the fun of playing full-scale 3D-CG games as well as viewing
high resolution video images anytime, anywhere, and also by offering
users new ways of enjoying digital entertainment, including playing
games on-line with family and friends via a wireless LAN feature.



PSP keeps evolving as an innovative handheld entertainment system,
offering a wide array of exciting software titles and introducing fun
peripherals as well as upgrading features through regular system
software updates. Inheriting the basic functions and the design
philosophy of PSP-1000, slim and light PSP (PSP-2000) was launched in
September 2007, introducing new features such as “Skype” and expanding
the joy of PSP from the entertainment arena into the area of
communication. In October 2008, SCE introduced PSP-3000 to the world,
featuring an advanced high contrast LCD and a built-in microphone,
while maintaining the form factors of PSP-2000. Gaining even greater
support from a wide range of users worldwide, the world of PSP
continues to grow.



On the games front, more than 2,000 titles on UMD are available
worldwide, with cumulative software sell-in units reaching 200 million
to date (*2). In addition to packaged games, taking advantage of PSP’s
network capability, many network games have become available for
download initially via PLAYSTATION®3 or PC. More and more games are
being made available for download since it was made possible in fall
2008 for PSP users to access PlayStation®Store directly via wireless
Internet. Currently, a total of over 500 titles from
PlayStation®Network exclusive games, “Game Archive” titles featuring
the original PlayStation games, and downloadable version of UMD titles
are available for download(*3). Many more exciting new software titles
in a variety of genres are planned continually for release from third
party developers and publishers as well as from SCE Worldwide Studios.
Also with a steady increase in the number of registered PlayStation
Network accounts, SCE will continue to further enhance network services
for both game and non-game entertainment content.



SCE will vigorously promote the expansion of the PSP platform and offer a variety of interactive digital entertainment.
