PSP Sales Stiil Rising In Japan
New sales figures have arrived from the Land Of The Rising Sun. Incidentally, Sony's morale must be also rising, given the fact that the PSP is king of the Japanese hill and competitors are far behind.

The “2000 less units” rule (give or take a few hundred) also applies for both the PlayStation consoles.
The only console (besides the PSP) to experience better sales was Microsoft's Xbox 360. The latest figures show an improvement of up to third. It's a good step for Microsoft, but is hardly an important improvement. Previously, the console sold 1,243 units and now is up to 1,687, which means the jump is only worth around 400 sales.
The full results for the week ended on September 23 are as follows:
PSP - 277,794
DS Lite - 70,523
Wii - 24,992
PS2 - 11,373
PS3 - 10,732
Xbox 360 - 1,687
Game Boy Advance - 382
Nintendo GameCube - 15
