According to a 1up article, Sony is reducing its PSP manufacturing estimates for the next fiscal year by 1/3, from 18 million units to 12 million units. This is a complete about face from Sony's comments last month that they couldn't produce PSPs fast enough to meet demand.

Nintendo is doomed!  The PSP has all the power of the PS2 and it will play movies and music!  No one will want the DS now!  My unbridled enthusiasm for all things possibly detrimental to Nintendo demands another exclamation mark!

Hell, even after dropping system production by 1/3, they're still outpacing game production by a huge margin.

I still think it's funny that so many people got rid of their DSs in favor of PSPs because "there's no games out for the DS!"

Course, there's just no way at all that the news that Sony was going to have to outsource production of the PSP to Taiwan or Korea to meet that 18 million figure could have any bearing on the decision to produce fewer units, because as we all know, it wouldn't cost anything at all to make those extra PSPs.

A more rational explanation: Sony realized that the physical costs of outsourcing would be high enough that it didn't make sense to exceed the capacity of the domestic factories making the PSP currently.
