Media Create’s Japanese hardware figures today have put PS3 within striking distance of passing Wii in the country this year, with only around 3,000 units now separating the two systems in 2010.
We missed this data last week thanks to Duke Nukem Forever. The upside is you now get two sets of weekly figures in one go. Try to keep those pants on, boys.
Wii passed the million mark for the year in Japan this week, and now stands at a total of 1,000,482 consoles sold in 2010.
It now seems certain that PS3 will both achieve the same milestone next week and pass Wii for the year: the Sony system has sold 997,187 machines this year, and bested Wii by 6,000 units this week.
Xbox 360 enjoyed a new sales achievement in Japan this week, hitting the 150,000 mark this year to stand at 150,649 units sold.
