It was 10% down until 3 months ago, and been selling ~100-110% up YoY since. Mario Kart was a game changer for Nintendo.

PSP sales with the exact same error two weeks in a row. It's not at 60 million.....

Didn't the PSP sell more than 80 million units? why does this article have it at 60 million? does this site ever get anything right as longer as it is a Sony product? it is almost like you guys have an agenda and part of your duty is undertrack all sony gaming systems. oh right, you guys don't know where to put the other "20 million" units that were reported because it doesn't match your abysmal "tracking system"...

Yeah, ioi has taken 20 million psps sales hostage and he wont release them unless Nintendo agree that the psp was super!
Alternatively it is a mistake on a free to consumer site for tracking sales, if you want I'm sure ioi can issue you a refund for a mistake with a 10 year old handhelds sales figures.
