PS3 beats Wii in Japan for second week

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.)
