ElectricPig: The Nintendo Wii might be winning the console war but there could soon be a new leader. Sony’s Playstation 3 is catching up. Is this the beginning of the end for the motion-sensing one?
Well, not quite yet. The Wii is still outselling the PS3 in Japan by 1.7 to 1, but that’s a severe decrease from the 6 to 1 battering it was handing out in May.
According to mag publisher, Enterbrain, Ninty sold 235,990 Wii’s in the five weeks ending June 29, while Sony sold 139,494 PS3’s.
Grand Theft Auto and Metal Gear Solid 4 have no doubt helped recent PS3 sales, so whether Sony can close the gap further remains to be seen.
