PlayStation storming Japan

So I posted yesterday about the PS3 being beaten once again in the US by both the Xbox 360 and by a much larger margin the Wii.

Well while that may be disturbing the big bosses at Sony headquarters the latest sales figures from Japan will have them reaching for the champagne.

For the second week running the PS3 has outsold the Wii by quite a decent margin as well.

PS3: 53,000
Wii:  36,000
360:   5,700

The 360 is still receiving no love in the land of the rising sun and I think it is pretty safe to say now that it will come stone last once again over there.

The latest price cut seems to have been the kicker for the Japanese and there is no reason why this upturn in fortune should end any time soon.
