It appears signing up exclusive RPGs wasn’t the stupidest thing Microsoft could have done in Japan. Xbox 360 sold almost 25,000 units in the past week on the back of Namco’s Tales of Vesperia, dwarfing a PS3 struggling to maintain even 10,000 per week.

Data for week ending August 10. Thanks, Media Create.
