Sony has shipped more than 800,000 PlayStation Portables since it launched the device in Japan last month. By April the company will increase its capacity in order to accommodate overseas launches.
Monthly production of the PSP is set to increase by 100,000 units to a million units a month in April, which will help to meet the demand of the overseas launches, according to Kutaragi.

Production levels will continue to ramp up throughout the year, with two million units a month being targeted by Summer, and a final target of three million units per month thought to be the goal for next Christmas.
