Japanese consumers have purchased over 300,000 PSP Slims in the three days since the system was launched, according to Enterbrain. According to the latest figures, 250,702 of the total purchased were standalone units, while 75,943 Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core bundles have also been snapped up. That's a total of 326,645 in just three days.
The PSP has been the third best selling system in Japan for a while now, behind Nintendo's DS handheld and Wii home console. However, last week the PSP rose to the top of the Japanese hardware chart after almost 100,000 units were sold, 15,000 more than the DS and 70,000 more than the Wii, a phenomenon that was largely attributable to the demand for the latest Final Fantasy Game, Crisis Core. There is no doubt now that this title is a system seller in Japan, and that the PSP will once again top the Japanese hardware charts come the end of the week.
