Konami Sees Rise In Wii, PSP Sales

Konami has seen a rise in sales for Wii and PSP for fiscal 2010, as compared to fiscal 2009.Going by Siliconera‘s figures, the Wii has been responsible for 22 per cent of fiscal 2010 software sales (up from 17 per cent in 2009), while the PSP has risen to 17 per cent from 12 per cent.That said, there has been a total drop in sales. Fiscal 2009 saw 26.81 million units sold, while fiscal 2010 is down to 20.20 million units. The fact that Metal Gear sales dropped from 4.75 million to 0.94 million likely plays a large part in this, however; we imagine Peace Walker’s impending release will fix that right up for fiscal 2011.Still, it seems that Konami may be one of the few companies doing well out of PSP and Wii. We’ve heard plenty of rumblings from other companies that the Wii can be a tough market to make money out of (well, excluding Ubisoft), but we imagine things like Silent Hill: Shattered Memories have assisted with these sales, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is likely to give the PSP sales a hefty boost in fiscal 2010.
