PS3 narrowing Japanese sales gap

Ben Parfitt
Famitsu publisher Enterbrain has stated that whilst the Wii outsold PS3 by two-to-one throughout October in Japan, Sony’s machine has narrowed the gap enjoyed by its rival for the fourth month in succession, Reuters reports.

The Wii sold 110,415 units throughout the month, with PS3 selling 47,183. It’s a stark contrast to last June when Wii outsold PS3 by more than six-to-one.

Sony’s recent PS3 price cuts, coupled with its growing software catalogue and the recent release of a number of exclusive titles such as Ratchet & Clank and Heavenly Sword, are thought to be the basis of the machine’s recovery.
