Illustration for article titled Xbox 360 Outsells PS3 In Japan. Again.

For the second week in a row, Microsoft outsold Sony on its home turf, with the Xbox 360 beating out the PlayStation 3 on the Media Create weekly sales charts. That's likely due to the console's recent price drop in Japan and the effects of the one-two software punch of Tales of Vesperia and Infinite Undiscovery. Xbox 360 sales were essentially halved, week-to-week, but it was still enough to beat out Sony on the console front. Nintendo continued not to notice the PS3 vs. 360 dust-up, instead opting to sell another shitload of hardware. • Nintendo DS - 61,242 • Wii - 29,921 • PSP - 28,674 • Xbox 360 - 13,777 • PlayStation 3 - 8,156 • PlayStation 2 - 7,720

Nintendo has more than enough money to make great hardcore games.

Wii HD will make Nintendo even more money next gen when they are the kings of gameplay AND graphics.

Face it everyone, Nintendo has been around for about 100 years and in the video game market for almost 30, they been around longer than Sony and Microsoft COMBINED.

But I digest, great job once again Nintendo for making the top spots!
