These numbers also include the 77,777 limited-edition bundle packs of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII.
The new PSP model topped the Japanese hardware charts ever since its release. The console took the top position away from the DS Lite two weeks ago (95,487 sold units) and kept the competition away one week later with an even better sales score (277,794 units).
The new PSP version was released in Japan on September 20 and is available in six colors: piano black, ceramic white, ice silver, rose pink, lavender purple, and felicia blue. Its price tag reads 19,800 yen ($170)
