The piece of toast that bit you this morning should have given it away, but your stay in the realm of the unexpected has just been extended to a second week. Media Create's hardware sales data for Japan shows that the PlayStation 3 outsold the Wii during the last week, the second time it's managed to do so since the introduction of the cheaper 40GB model. Though overall sales dropped by approximately 30%, the PS3 maintained its third place position with 39,178 units sold, compared to the Wii's 36,230.
As always, we'll post the detailed information a little later today. (SPOILERS: The DS Lite is in the number one position.)
