They are quite evenly matched. If Nintendo is serious about supporting the 3DS until 2019, I can see it reaching a tie with the PSP. The hardware and software legs are there.

This is close.

By the end of Nov 2012, PSP grew by 4.5 mil. That's around 60% worth of 3DS sales last year. So yes, it's entirely possible that it might overtake PSP, but it's going to be very close.
