New software milestone for PlayStation Portable
The PSP reached a new software milestone today as Capcom announced that domestic shipments of Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G have topped the three million mark. The title becomes the first PSP game to ship three million units.
The shipment figure includes both the original 2nd G release and a PSP the Best budget release. Capcom did not share the exact split between the two versions, but did say that the budget version has topped 500,000 in shipments.
