Playstation Portable (PSP) is Sony's first handheld gaming console. It competes with the Nintendo DS. It will be succeeded by the PSP 2 (temporary name).

The PSP, in Japan, is outselling the Wii and DS from Jan 2008 to April 2008. Strangely, very few games are appearing in the charts, with the only apparent success being the Monster Hunter series. There is uncertainty whether consumers are buying the PSP and pirating games or if they're buying the PSP for it's media and online capabilities.
