As if there were any doubt, Yakuza 3 took an easy first in the Japanese charts this week, and unconfirmed hardware numbers are suggesting a clear win for PS3 over Wii. We’ll have to wait for the Media Create figures for that, though.

Looks as though Wii Fit is finally on the verge of dropping out of the top ten. Note how quickly Star Ocean vanished, as well.
