PS3 passes 1m mark in Japan

Enterbrain, the publisher of Japanese games bible Famitsu, has revealed that Sony’s PlayStation 3 has passed the one million sales mark in Japan – eight months since its launch on November 11th.

However, the pace falls significantly short of that boasted by rival Nintendo, whose Wii console reached the one million milestone in just two months on sale. To date, Wii has sold 2.9 million units in the territory.

In comparison, Microsoft’s Xbox 360, which was launched in December 2005, has sold 420,705 units.
