Sales for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 fell for the third consecutive week in the latest Japan retail data. The PS3 ranked No. 4 in overall hardware sales.
A Disney exec this week said that the PS3 was a Trojan horse for Blu-ray technology. Disney releases high-definition content exclusively on the Blu-ray disc format.
Capcom Co. this week said that Devil May Cry 4 has shipped 2 million units on the PS3 and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360. The title was released earlier this month.
PS3 sales continued to gain amid the Blu-ray format's victory over HD DVD. The 40GB PS3 this week held a sales increase at retailer Amazon.com.
Sales for the Xbox 360 this week reached barely over 2,000 units in the latest Japan charts. The hardware ranked No. 6 in hardware sales, behind all handhelds and consoles.
Analysts this week told TheStreet.com that Microsoft may keep Blu-ray away from the Xbox 360. Instead the company may focus on digital distribution via Xbox Live. - Via Punch Jump
