According to JVN.com, the PSPgo has sold over 8,000 units in it’s first three days on sale in France, with 50,000 units made available across the country to retailers.

Since the console went on sale nearly two weeks ago, sales for PSP hardware has increased in the UK by over 100 percent, although specific numbers weren’t given by Chart-Track.

Expect a small jump in PSP hardware sales in the US when the NPD’s are released on Thursday.

    Here’s a non-Google-translated translation, if anyone’s interested (it’s clumsy and I took a few liberties with the text since it’s a ten minute thing):

    While some prophesise its doom and others rejoice at its availability, the PSPgo’s existence is divisive. Beyond these ideological debates, there is only one truth that matters: sales numbers.

    And it is safe to say that the first figures revealed by Sony are rather encouraging for what has been termed a “niche machine” by Georges Fornay, CEO of PlayStation France. No less than 8,000 units were sold in its first three days on the market, out of a total of 50,000 units sent to retailers.

    It remains to be seen whether these numbers will hold over the next few weeks and especially as the Christmas season draws near in so as to know whether Sony’s gamble has paid off or not.

    Actually saw one on display in a shop for the first time today. I was surprised by the impressive reduction in size. As a handheld device it has become a lot more portable. Was even briefly tempted.
