The PLAYSTATION 3 has outsold the Wii for the past two-and-a-half months. That we know. What percentage the Japanese PS3 sales have spiked since the same month last year, that we didn't — until now.

According to April data released by Famitsu publisher Enterbrain, PLAYSTATION 3 sales are up 288 percent from the same period last year. The reason for the dramatic increase was the Blu-ray release of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete. The flick was bundled with the eagerly anticipated Final Fantasy XIII demo.

A sign of things to come when the game is released only on the PS3 in Japan?
