It appears that Sony has had enough of Microsoft trying to annex Japan and the Americanised Nintendo ruling in the land of the rising sun.
With a glint in it’s eye and a smile on it’s face, Sony has been marketing itself silly in Japan and it appears that it is really paying off.
For the second month running now Sony has taken the top sales spot in Japan with its PS3 outselling both the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii.
PlayStation 3: 22,825
Nintendo Wii: 17,276
Xbox 360: 4849
However on the hand held front Nintendo is still holding out but not by much, this could be down to the imminent release of the DSi though, we will have to wait until next month to see if that is the case
Nintendo DS: 65,809
PlayStation Portable: 54,148
