The console wars are not playing for simple appeasement, however - these days its actual full-on war, an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object. Like Superman when he faced Solaris the Tyrant Sun, except Sun-Eater is fooling around with his Wii, thus causing Superman to…fail and die. There being no easier or geekier way to say it, Sony's Playstation 3 has finally begun its quest for console domination…in Japan at least.
"The console went on to sell 36,513 units, almost 20,000 units more than the previous week, thus outselling both the 360 (11,795) and Wii (17,876) combined (29,671). Ironically, the killer app for Japan was Sega's Yakuza 3, an action adventure title in the vein of Grand Theft Auto but set against the gritty Japanese underworld of mobs and dirty deals. Star Ocean IV may have sold a cool 179,000 units since it's release but the Yakuza 3 surpassed this number within it's first week. It appears circumstances and AAA launches across the world have guaranteed one thing."
