PS3 takes Japan by storm

1 min read

The PS3 really is cleaning up at the moment. These price cuts are exactly what the doctor ordered.

The latest sales figures are in and the PS3 has overtaken the Wii to lead the next gen charts in Japan 

  • PlayStation 3 – 56,000
  • Wii – 35,000
  • PlayStation 2 – 9,400
  • Xbox 360 – 7,000
  • I left the PS2 in there so that we can all laugh at its eventual demise. Seriously though with the 360 nearly overtaking the PS2 in its hometown I think we can start talking about how the PS2 truly is on its way out.

    Microsoft will not be too disappointed with the 360’s performance this week, even though it came stone last, but Sony must be over the moon.

    So can we stop calling this a spike now? No I don’t think so, lets give it another 2 weeks before we start really believing the PS3 is making its comeback….
