Xbox 360 outsells PS3 2.5-to-1 ... in Japan

While the Xbox 360 was outsold by the PS3 in our neck of the woods, Microsoft beat its corporate rival on their own home turf. The Xbox 360's popularity jumped this week hot off the heels of Namco Bandai's Tales of Vesperia, pushing 24,962 consoles out the door -- a 19,603 unit increase from the previous week.

In anticipation of the RPG's popularity, Microsoft created a limited edition bundle that added Tales of Vesperia and a slew of extras in with a standard Xbox 360 Premium (20GB) system exclusively in Japan -- the bundle is reportedly the most sought after package available in the region. Full sales chart for the week after the jump.

Nintendo DS - 60,434
PSP - 58,501
Wii - 38,506
Xbox 360 - 24,962
PlayStation 3 - 9,673
PlayStation 2 - 8,503
