This page has a week by week comparison of PSP and DS sales in Japan since the launch of each platform. Overall the DS is about 1.3 million units up, thanks mostly to a far bigger launch, moving a million more units than the PSP in December last year. This year the race is some what closer with the DS just 300,000 sales ahead. One of the more interesting weeks is April 24, when Nintendogs was released and quadrupled DS sales, since then the PSP has not won a single week. It just goes to show that in Japan at least people are more interested in the gaming experience than flashy graphics and media capabilities.

I would be most interested to see stats for the bigger US and EU markets as I feel these would paint a very different picture with most abandoning the more “childish” Nintendo system.
