3DS vs PSP – VGChartz Gap Charts – May 2019 Update - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 10 July 2019 / 2,632 Views

The VGChartz Gap charts are updated monthly and each article focuses on a different gap chart. The charts include comparisons between the 7th generation and 8th generation platforms, as well as comparisons within the 8th generation. All sales are worldwide, unless otherwise stated.

3DS Vs. PSP Global:

Gap change in latest month: 227,998 – PSP

Gap change over last 12 months: 1,255,558 – PSP

Total Lead: 3,972,972 – PSP

3DS Total Sales: 74,585,422

PSP Total Sales: 78,558,394

In the latest month the gap grew by 227,998 units in favor of the PSP when compared to the 3DS. In the last 12 months the PSP has increased its lead by 1.26 million units. The PSP currently leads by 3.97 million units.

An important note is that the two handhelds launched at different times of the year. The PSP first launched in December 2004, while the 3DS launched in February 2011. The 3DS has sold 74.59 million units, while the PSP sold 78.56 million units.

As time passes it is looking unlikely the Nintendo 3DS will surpass the lifetime sales of the PSP.
