PSX sells out in Japan on first day.

Sony’s new PSX device has sold through the first shipment in its first day of sale. Many customers stayed in long lines at stores only to leave empty-handed. Large amounts of pre-orders cleared the shelves before many shoppers had a chance to enter the front door.

Due to Sony stripping some of the PSX features for a Christmas launch, the hordes of analysts that follow Sony’s every move predicted that sales would be lower than expected. They’re now saying that sales will hold strong for a couple months and then drop off. Sony has been firm in its belief that at least one million units will sell in Japan in the next year.
