PSP sees biggest launch weekend in UK ever

By Derek Sooman on
No surprise here that the PSP is setting new records - the handheld console has seen the biggest launch weekend of any console in the UK. Around 185,000 units were sold in the first three days at retail. This is more than double the figure of the Nintendo DS, which launched back in March.

The performance of the console reflects the pent-up demand in the UK market for the PSP, which has been heavily featured in the mainstream media here since it launched in Japan nine months ago.
