Illustration for article titled Wii, PS3 Sales In Dead Heat In Japan

This week's report from Japanese sales tracker Media Create shows that recent price drops on Nintendo's Wii and Sony's PlayStation 3 are having nearly equal impact on sales of each console, a slight edge going to the PS3.

A curious tie, we suppose, as Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit Plus continue to sell better than the PlayStation 3 competition. But less curious is the continued dominance of the Nintendo DSi and PSP, both doing just fine on the software and hardware front.


For the bestselling console hardware in Japan for the week of October 5 to 11, look down.

  • Nintendo DSi - 50,144
  • PSP - 40,100
  • PlayStation 3 - 30,896
  • Wii - 30,741
  • Nintendo DS Lite - 5,454
  • Xbox 360 - 3,326
  • PlayStation 2 - 2,133
