There are eight PSP titles on this week’s Japanese sales chart. The ageing handheld proved that there's still life in its elderly legs by outpacing the Vita by a few thousand units. We’re not sure whether that’s a sign of the PSP’s continued relevance, or the dismal state of Sony's latest platform.

Still, despite the sheer number of PSP entries on the chart, few achieved particularly noteworthy numbers. Digimon World Re:Digitise was the pick of the lot, finishing fourth with 85k units. Elsewhere, Konami’s multiplatform Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2012 shared its success across three different PlayStation platforms, with the PS3 version selling just over 62k units.

Feel free to peruse the full list of movers and shakers below – just try not to spend too long looking at those Vita numbers.
