Japanese hardware charts – PS3 poised for year-to-date Wii kill

Media Create’s Japanese hardware figures today have put PS3 within striking distance of passing Wii in the country this year, with only around 3,000 units now separating the two systems in 2010.

We missed this data last week thanks to Duke Nukem Forever. The upside is you now get two sets of weekly figures in one go. Try to keep those pants on, boys.

Wii passed the million mark for the year in Japan this week, and now stands at a total of 1,000,482 consoles sold in 2010.

It now seems certain that PS3 will both achieve the same milestone next week and pass Wii for the year: the Sony system has sold 997,187 machines this year, and bested Wii by 6,000 units this week.

Xbox 360 enjoyed a new sales achievement in Japan this week, hitting the 150,000 mark this year to stand at 150,649 units sold.

Japanese hardware, year-to-date (combined SKUs):

  1. DS – 1,597,712
  2. PSP – 1,421,678
  3. Wii – 1,000,482
  4. PS3 – 997,187
  5. Xbox 360 – 150,649
  6. PS2 – 58,649

    I tell you what, Psycho, those raised spirits you mentioned, prevented some clear and unobstructed thinking to solve that number sequence; not that I minded though…

    Japan means jack shit in terms of hardware sales. Wii never was strong there to start, it was DS that rape everything else.

    Do you really want to tell me that ps3 and psp in japan will sell more than wii and ds? O_O
    So is this the decline of nintendo consoles and the real reason of the launch of the 3ds?
