JAPAN: PS3 overtakes Wii in March

After 16 months of dominance by the Wii, and even at the times the Xbox 360, in the Japanese hardware charts Sony’s PS3 has finally bettered Nintendo’s Wii in the country’s monthly hardware charts.

Reuters reports that March sales of Sony’s machine hit 146,948, way ahead of Wii’s 99,335 units sold. Xbox 360 lagged behind both with 43,172 unit sales.

Big hitting triple-A releases such as Sega’s Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 (Yakuza 3) and Capcom’s Resident Evil 5 were big successes for Sony’s console throughout the month.
