PSP games sales numbers smaller than expected?

So I was just reading about the sales statistics regarding the PSP and it seems a bit off to me:

+ 5.07 million PSPs sold worldwide
+ 2.74 million PSPs sold in US
+ 2.33 million PSPs sold in Japan

+ 11.2 million PSP games sold worldwide
+ 7.3 million PSP games sold in US
+ 3.9 million PSP games sold in Japan
+ 48 PSP games released to date
+ 150 available games by March 31, 2006

+ 4.3 million UMD movies sold in US
+ 400,000 UMD movies sold in Japan

Just look at the game sales, either in the US or Japan. That tells me that the average is about 1.5 games per PSP sold, and I expected more (even though I bought just one game myself). Maybe it’s a sign that the current available games are not that attractive to gamers?

It’s also pretty amazing how small the number of UMD movies sold in Japan is..
