Wii sales top 3m in Japan

Outsold PS3 3:1

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Nintendo has sold more than 3m Wii games consoles in Japan, local games magazine publisher Enterbrain has claimed. Earlier this week, it said Sony had shipped 1.01m PlayStation 3s in the country.

Nintendo's Wii: outsold PS3 3:1

Sony passed the 1.01m mark on 15 July, Enterbrain said. On that date, Japanese Wii sales to date hit 3.01m, as we forecast when we covered the Sony sales announcement. Despite the two figures deriving from the same day, Enterbrain didn't release the Wii numbers when it announced the Sony sales total.

That just leaves the Xbox 360's sales to 15 July 2007 still to be announced, but with sales totalling just 420,705 on 8 July, don't expect any sudden resurgence, particularly now that Microsoft has announced the more capacious Elite model will be coming to Japan next October.
