Well Europe is Sony ground, and to my knowledge, the PSP isn't that far behind the DS in the US (two million I think). It is Japan that is really letting the PSP out in the cold and buying the DS as if it were a cure for cancer.

IIRC, isn't the DS also beating the PSP somewhat handedly in Europe? Nintendo has moved about 9 million units there. As for the US: Not too long ago, the PSP was beating the DS; for it to now be 2 million up on it is pretty impressive in such a small amount of time.

As I said I don't know (actually I didn't I should have though since I don't). It could be 2 million, could be 500k. The DS is doing rather well in Europe, though to my knowledge (again I am not sure) the PSP is doing rather well to.

That's cool: But I don't see the PSP's situation improving elsewhere.

After Sony Hardware bricked my PSP, I think the PSP deserves death!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Just call Sony for god's sake. Sony is probably gonna get you a new one right away.

Also the "confirmation" is pretty much the same rumor that was spread around some 7 months ago, or some thing.

I have other real-world worries too, plus tomorrow I'm going on vacation.

Do it when you get home then.

That is why there is a little "rumor" at the top of the article. They have confirmed that a new PSP is coming, but not much else.

Besides they even say this:

Quote from: Kotaku
Today, thanks to several sources close to Sony, we bring you that nitty gritty as the redesigned Playstation Portable nears completion.

Obviously they can't reveal those source, but until I see all the things they are promising on a document from Sony, I am still taking it with a grain of salt.

I have a friend that works for Sony testing products, in the UK.  Of course, he's not even supposed to have told me that, but I can assure you, that the re-designed PSP does exist, and is coming soon.

Even with the redesign do you think that the PSP even has a chance to come back and gain on the DS?

Depends on the price.
