JAPAN: PS3 passes 4m sales

Numbers from Enterbrain, the publisher of weekly games magazine Famitsu, show that Sony’s PS3 has now sold over 4m units in Japan.

The same stats show that Nintendo’s Wii has now also passed the 9m total sales mark since its release in 2006.

The PS3’s performance is all the more impressive considering that at the same stage last year its sales stood at 2.6m, according to Kotaku. The Wii stood at 7.5m this time last year, meaning sales for both consoles have been more or less neck and neck throughout 2009.
