According to MCV, Sony's PS3 has already overtaken total Xbox 360 sales in Japan, this despite the former's extreme launch shortages and being on sale for only one month. The Xbox 360 has sold fewer than 180,000 units over the last year, 10,000 less than the PS3. Both, however, have sold less than half of total Nintendo Wii units to date, 400,000 to be exact.

To put that into perspective, the Xbox 360 has sold less than 5% of its US total amounting to 3.8 million as of December 7, 2006. Granted, the Japanese public have never been keen on brand Xbox -- for whatever reason -- but it's looking like the 360 doesn't stand a chance (and maybe never did) in the world's second largest video game market.

I'm not surprised but is that counting the 100,000 Blue Dragon bundles it sold? If so 360 might take this year, but its not really fair tbh, PS3 has extreme shortages.

The wii has sold well over double the amount of ps3's. the ps3 has sold (last time i looked) about 400000 consoles whilst the wii has sold 1.3million consoles me thinks wii is the better console. I know of playstation fanboys tht have been converted by the wii. Sony just tryed to hard and unfortunatly failed. No ones gonna buy a console that costs as much as the wii and xbox360 combined except those with lots of money. I saw the ps3 for sales over in england (not out till sometime next year(although im not gonna buy 1) crappy sony)
it was on sales for 900. I just made my own computer for 900 and it can be upgraed and has lots of games and also will have DX10unlike the consoles which stuck with dx9. I liked the ps2 and the gamecube although i didnt have a gamecube but my friend has 1 and a ps2 but we always play on the gamecube co it had the better multiplayer,

Im only writing all of this crap cos im on workexperience at the moment and it gets really boring here

I'm only getting a 360 mainly because all of my friends have one and because I'm one of the biggest Halo Fans on earth. (Not for game-play, but mainly for the story) But I'd have to say, just from hearing around, the Wii is getting alot of attention and I, myself an old Nintendo Fan would definitely get one as well. Theres nothing too different with the PS3 aside from the amazing graphics and (I'm sure I'll be corrected) a new look...but playing wise, nothing has really changed at all from the PS2.

Hell, the original style GBA without the backlit screen is outselling 360 over there some weeks.

Big woop. The ps3 outselling the 360 in Japan is like donuts outselling apples at a fat camp.

Interesting news. In another shocker, anime sells more in Japan than America! What is the world coming to?
Honestly, sometimes I wonder is Sony Japan is making the same stupid press blunders as Sony America/Europe...

Lol, that's pretty funny man. Keep making us laugh!
"Backwards compatibility, as you know from PlayStation One and PlayStation 2, is a core value of what we believe we should offer. And access to the library of content people have created, bought for themselves, and accumulated over the years is necessary to create a format. PlayStation is a format meaning that it transcends many devices -- PSOne, PS2, and now PS3" - Phil Harrison, Sony, December 2006.

who cares what japan thinks, bunch of candys lol jk but really, its all about 360, NOW idc what u think because if u think about it im right.

ok
1) the graphics are about the same, alot of people out there prolly thats all they care about

BUT

2) the internet play, xbox>ps3 on internet play, ps3 lags all the time and xbox is clear, NOW u have to pay for xbox live but thats what makes it so fast and quick, because they have the money to make a better internet connection for the regular human,

also ps3 is 600$, fuck that
+5 for being brave and -5 for being a stupid ass, hey look, your an iraq soilder!!
