Japan: PS3 continues to outdo Wii

The positive effect of Sony’s global PS3 price reductions has continued to have the desired effect in Japan, with Sony’s machine outselling the Nintendo Wii for the second week in succession.

CVG reports that for the week ending November 18th PS3 sold 53,000 units in the territory, well ahead of Wii’s 36,000 – and this was in the week that top selling Wii title Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles was released.

DS still leads the pack, however, with sales of 81,000, with Sony’s PSP bringing up the rear, shifting 66,000. PS2’s weekly sales of 8,800 comfortably beat Xbox 360’s 5,000 sales.
