PS3 takes Nintendo crown

Now number one in Japan


Sony's PS3
has finally beaten Nintendo to take the top spot in the Japanese market.

According to figures from Media Create Sony shifted 75,311 machines in the seven days ending June 15th, with sales boosted by the release of Metal Gear Solid 4.

The figures were nearly double that of the Wii, which only managed to sell 45,564. Then came the PS2, with 7,297 consoles sold. At least Nintendo can take some comfort that it is making a killing on worldwide sales and it is not doing as badly in Japan as the Xbox 360. 

Microsoft could only sell 2,163 units at the time. It would have sold more, but the wheelbarrow Redmond used to sell them from had a dodgy wheel and needed to be repaired.
