PSP passes 15 million sales mark in Japan

Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G biggest selling title

The PSP has passed another sales milestone, reaching 15 million units sold in Japan, according to Famitsu parent company Enterbrain.

The sales have been boosted by retail performance from massive domestic success Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, which has achieved 2,453,132 full price sales, with 3,984,597 units being sold in total if budget versions of the game are included, Andriasang reports.

The PSP still has some distance to cover before catching up with the sales figures for the DS, however. At the time the PSP passed 15 million, Nintendo's handheld had sold 31,039,215 units in its various guises in Japan.
