The Xbox 360’s Japenese sales figures have finally overtaken those of the Sony PlayStation 3 - by a margin of just 239 consoles, according to market watcher Media Create.

Figures from the company show that 17,673 Xbox 360s were sold during the seven days up to 4 November. Some 17,434 Sony PS3 consoles were in the same time.

It’s difficult to say exactly what caused this sudden Xbox 360 sales ‘surge’. However, Microsoft has just cut the Core's model’s cost to ¥27,800 (£120/€172/$244) and the Standard edition’s price tag to ¥34,800 (£150/€215/$306), with effect from 1 November.

The 360 has been growing its month-on-month sales figures in Japan of late, while both the PS3 and Nintendo's Wii have experienced declining sales.
