It may be the end of the world. Last week, the unthinkable happened: The Xbox 360 outsold the PlayStation 3--in Japan. For the week ending August 10th, the 360 sold 24,962 in the Land of the Rising Sun compared with the PlayStation 3's 9,673. That's more than 2 to 1.

The reason for this bucking of the usual sales pattern in Japan: Namco Bandai’s Tales of Vesperia. People in Japan apparently love the RPG series so much that they went out and bought 360s. If you want to know what the fuss is about, Tales of Vesperia comes out in the U.S. on August 26th.

Oh, and if you were wondering, The DS and the PSP outsold everything else, with sales of 60,434  and 58,501 respectively.
