PS3, Wii have best week of sales since launch in Japan

The PS3 and Wii have been posting some impressive numbers lately. According to figures from Media Create Co. Ltd, Sales of both the PS3 and Wii consoles in Japan jumped during the second week of December thanks to greater supplies of the consoles from their respective manufacturers.

The Wii was the best-selling console for the week with 108,237 units. Sony's PS3 came in second with 70,942 units and Microsoft's Xbox 360 came in third at 17,168 units. With the exception of the launch weeks, these are the best weekly figures posted by the new PS3 and Wii consoles yet.

While the Xbox 60 is still lagging behind the hometown consoles, the sheer power of Blue Dragon bumped up sales of the Microsoft console, with current sales being well above those recorded in November. Over the week spanning December 4 to 10, over 35,000 Xbox 360 consoles were sold

The story is too old to be commented.

No wonder it's selling terrible in Japan, Microsoft totally downgraded it to 60!

Erm... WTF are they counting as the "second week of December" then?

Right before Christmas and the two new consoles are still selling well? Who would have thought.... but the 360's sales increase just because of ONE GAME, now that is news. With Lost Planet and then Lost Odyssey on the way, perhaps not all is lost for Microsoft in the land of the rising sun.

so it's actually sad that MS had to rely on that one title to boost sales instead a multitude of titles. Even then, it only sold 35 thousand copies.

Can we have someone post news on the worldwide sales figures instead of just the japanese sales figures just for once please! Only worlwide figures show how the formats are really doing and would make more interesting news!
