Sony overtakes Wii in Japan

Post by CloudyPrison »

Hah! Too bad Microsoft bought up all the game developers!
With all the doom and gloom stories we've seen about PlayStation 3 getting beat by Nintendo Wii, it's refreshing to have some good news for a change. For the first time in 16 months, Sony's console managed to best its motion-controlled competitor, 146,948 to 99,335 this past March in Japan, according to gaming research group / Famitsu publisher Enterbrain. The sales are undoubtedly helped by PS3 heavy-hitters Yakuza 3 and Resident Evil 5 debuting last month, and at this point we don't expect the trend to continue, but for now Sony, enjoy you victory and bask in the knowledge that you're still totally kicking Xbox 360's rear in your home country.

I think every man, woman, and child in Japan have 2 Wiis at this point, so they had a little bit of a down month. The DSi should make up for the lost sales though.

I hear the DSi is blowing away the DS in terms of historic sales figures.

Not bad, I would like to get one, can I use my R4 card with it? :mrgreen:
