PSPgo Sales Go Sky High
The PSPgo, just released just a week ago, has received almost universal appraise for it’s simplistic, yet sleek look; and giving an alternative for the more casual gamer. Sony has revealed some surprising numbers that really are a testimony to the popularity of the handheld.
In only three days since the October 1st release, the PSPgo boosted U.S. PSP sales 300% week-over-week.
“The launch of PSP Go has generated strong consumer interest in the overall PSP platform and the PlayStation Network’s digital content offering,” Patrick Seybold, SCEA corporate communications director said. Also the PSPgo has accounted for a “significant increase” in North American PlayStation Network revenue. PSP digital game sales were 200% in the region.
Seybold went on to say:
“With several blockbuster games launching digitally and on UMD in the coming weeks — from LittleBigPlanet to Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines — we expect this momentum to continue and look forward to a strong holiday season for both the PSP Go and PSP-3000.”
The PSPgo is retailing for $249.99 and can be found at any major retailer.
