Thanks to ieXbeta!

Sony Corporation is betting that more than a million gamers will snap up its new PlayStation Portable (PSP) gaming machines within days of its March 24 release at midnight Eastern time.

But the bigger question facing the world's No. 2 consumer electronics maker, which promised to have 1 million units ready for the launch, is whether it can make enough to meet demand, particularly in Japan, its home country and the biggest market for video games.

"We anticipate people lined up at many stores early for this. How fast we'll sell out? It's safe to say we expect to sell out the first day," said Best Buy spokesman Brian Lucas.

PSP isn't Steam though.

My pre-order of the bundle pack from gamestop didn't come today. I'm pretty anxious to get it after dropping down over 400 dollars for it.

Got one, love it.

To be honest, the price is a steal when you look at what it does. Duo sticks are expensive, but I can still afford them so it's not a big deal.

My buddy Syd has had one for about a week. It is very cool. It came with Spiderman 2 the movie. He also bought Need For Speed and ... errrr, can't remember... another game for it.

went to visit my sister this weekend in ohio and yesterday (five days after launch) one walmart by her house and the other walmart about 20 minutes away had at minimum 20 PSPs a piece.

was tempted to buy as many as I could but when I checked Ebay it seems like those that want one already have one since they aren't selling barely anything at all over retail.
