Japanese Wii sales rain on PS3 parade

Sony console outsold 4:1

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nintendo's Wii continues to dominate the Japanese games console biz, outselling Sony's PlayStation 3 by a factor of four to one over the past six months.

According to Japanese games magazine publisher Enterbrain, Nintendo sold 1.6m Wiis in its home market between the beginning of April up until the end of September. Sony shifted 385,492 PS3s in the same period.

The Reuters newsagency, quoting Enterbrains numbers, didn't provide an equivalent figure for Microsoft's Xbox 360. However, past reports have put the software giant's Japanese sales at 122,565 for the first half of 2007.

Last month, it emerged that Nintendo had shipped more than 9m Wiis around the world since the console's introduction in December 2006, compared to 8.9m 360s - even though the Microsoft machine has been available to buy for a whole year longer than the Wii.

At the time, PS3 sales to date were estimated at 3.7m, less than half the Xbox 360's score.
