Today we take a look at the top 10 best-selling games for yet another platform. Up to this point we have looked at the original PlayStation, the Nintendo 64, the PlayStation 2, the original Xbox, the GameCube, and the Nintendo DS. This week we are taking a look at Sony's first handheld, the PSP.
The PSP is the ninth best-selling video game platform in history and the fourth best-selling handheld in gaming history. It is also the best-selling handheld not released by Nintendo. It sold 80.82 million units in its lifetime.
It sold a very similar amount in all three major regions, shifting 21.41 million units in North America, 24.14 million units in Europe, and a massive 20.01 million units in Japan. It also sold a combined 15.26 million units across the rest of the world.
With its strong install base the PSP also managed to shift a fair amount of games, despite being plagued by piracy throughout its lifespan. 56 games for the console managed to sell over 1 million units and 20 games sold more than two million units.
