We're all used to stories of how the Wii outsold the PlayStation 3 and 360, but recently, in Japan, the Wii really outsold the PS3. Nintendo sold nearly four times as many Wiis in February as Sony did PS3s. As for the 360, that never-got-too-big-in -Japan console came in a distant third. The scorecard:
- Wii: 331,627
- PS3: 89,131
- 360: 14,079
We suspect the Japanese release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl had a little something to do with the spike in sales.
