Xbox 360 outsells PlayStation 3 in Japan

By on October 3, 2008, 4:34 PM
It’s been a tough road so far, but it looks like the Xbox 360 might finally be making some headway in Japan. According to the latest data from Enterbrain, the Xbox 360 has outsold Sony’s PS3 for a full month – the first time ever in the country. Microsoft sold 53,547 units of the Xbox 360 in the four weeks to September 28, compared with 33,071 units of the PS3.

Xbox 360 sales in Japan were bolstered after a price cut on September 1, which brought the console’s price down to 19,800 yen ($189), but also due to strong demand for RPGs ‘Tales of Vesperia’ and ‘Infinite Undiscovery’. Unsurprisingly, though, the Nintendo Wii easily dominated the market in September with 109,548 units sold.
