According to Enterbrain, a Japanese publisher that tracks console sales, Nintendos Wii console outsold Sonys PlayStation 3 in Japan last month by six to one: 270,974 Wii consoles to 41,628 PS3s. Can it get worse? Yeah: only about 17,616 Xbox 360 consoles were sold in June. Nintendo has sold about 2.76m Wii consoles in Japan since the launch last December, while Sony has sold 970,270 PS3s since it debuted last November.
Last week, Phil Harrison, PlayStations head of worldwide studios, told US Game Informer magazine that pundits should not judge the success of the console based on the launch software line-up. PlayStation fans are still awaiting some of the biggest franchises on the machine to emerge, such as Metal Gear Solid, Killzone 2 and Gran Turismo.
