IGN writes, "Sony's Japanese offices are on vacation for Japan's continuing Golden Week holiday period, but Kaz and crew must be celebrating the latest sales stats from Enterbrain. According to the Famitsu publisher, PS3 sold 109,000 units for the month of April (covering March 30 through April 26). This is a 288% increase over last April."
"The big reason for the jump is likely the Final Fantasy XIII demo, which gave the system over 60,000 units sold at its release midway through the month. The system has continued to beat the struggling Wii."
