Enterbrain figures have shown this morning that Xbox 360 outsold PS3 in Japan in September.

Microsoft sold 53,547 units of the 360 in the four weeks to September 28, compared with 33,071 units of the PS3.

Wii sold more than both of them put together, obviously: the machine moved 109,548 units in the month.

    I still can’t believe it, personally. I think it’s a huge, Microsoft-sponsored lie.

    I think it’s more props to MS, really. They turned up, got loads of RPGs and dropped the price to an eye-watering level. They deserve to get a result.

    I bet they’re gutted they can’t release 3 RPGs a month and drop the price 12 times a year! :)

    Maybe they’re holding out for bigger bags of money?

    I surmise it’s a contractual thing with Sony rather than a “can’t be bothered” thing.

    This generation has seen so many flying pigs.

    But it’s surprising each time you spy one up in the sky.

    Although they did have to undercut the Wii and moneyhat quite a few RPG’s to make it happen.
