Original Xbox was pretty strong in comparison to PS2, though I owned the PS2.

Japan was the decider for WW sales in February, and with PS3 sales at 156,000 in Japan, it could VERY well be again.

Japan is the sole reason Sony doesn't care about being 5k-10k behind a month in America as it quadruples those sales in Japan in a week but of course MS choose to ignore this. Also these poor sales of 360 games can't go on forever eventually Jap developers will drop MS console and lets be fair here that will be a massive hit for 360 as US devs alone will not bring MS the victory. MS knew this early on that's why they paid so much for FF and contracts with mistwalker.

i have a soft spot for japanese games and it's good news for me when the PS3 is selling well there.

The growing install base is going to have huge influence on the direction of games with Japan as the target market.

KH3 and a new HD Monster Hunter are one of those games whose existence lies heavily on the fate of PS3 japanese sales, not to mention the lesser known JRPG devs who derives the majority of their sales from their home market.

Amazing for the PS3, at this rate 2m assured by the end of 2010

This isn't really news, the PS3 always does great in Japan. The real news is that the XBox had software chart in the top 10, that rarely ever happens. I'm sure it will be short lived though, there just aren't enough Xboxes there to sustain a long sales run on any single title.
