The latest hardware sales figures from Japan suggest that Sony's PS3 is gaining ground on the hugely successful Nintendo Wii.
According to Famitsu publisher Enterbrain, Nintendo sold 245,653 Wiis in the four weeks to August 26th, compared with 81,541 units for Sony's PS3.
Xbox 360 sold 11,288 units in the same period.
That means that the Wii outsold Sony's system by three-to-one in the period.
However, as noted by The Times, that ratio is half the six-to-one sales figure Enterbrain reported back in June – and down from the four-to-one rate posted in July.
