SONY PSP Takes over the UK...


"Got yours yet?"

SONY's gorgeous PSP has been welcomed to the UK by more than 185,000 people in the first weekend of sales which is more than double the amount of Nintendo DS's sold in it's first week...

And not content to move a lot of hardware - the PSP has gatecrashed the all format software sales chart taking 9 of the top 10 places (including the number 1). See below (chart from Charttrack)...

1/ RIDGE RACER - SONY COMPUTER ENT. (-)
2/ BRIAN LARA INTERNATIONAL CRICKET 2005 - CODEMASTERS (1)
3/ WIPEOUT PURE - SONY COMPUTER ENT. (-)
4/ VIRTUA TENNIS: WORLD TOUR - SEGA (-)
5/ METAL GEAR AC!D - KONAMI (-)
6/ NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND: RIVALS - ELECTRONIC ARTS (-)
7/ MIDNIGHT CLUB 3: DUB EDITION - TAKE 2 (-)
8/ TOCA RACE
DRIVER 2 - CODEMASTERS (-)
9/ TONY HAWK'S UNDERGROUND 2: REMIX - ACTIVISION (-)
10/ WORLD TOUR SOCCER - SONY COMPUTER ENT. (-)

I couldn't resist joining in the buying frenzy and added TOCA RACE DRIVER 2 and VIRTUA TENNIS to my games shelf - both of which are excellent. And GHOSTBUSTERS on UMD which looks and sounds better than ever on the funky PSP...

With new Burnout, Grand Theft Auto and Fifa coming before Christmas... this is already the season to be jolly - jolly well impressed by the PSP!!
