Watch the mountains, hot-shot. Sony’s “wait wait wait” policy may finally be bearing fruit, in Japan at least.

Culminated first quarter Famitsu sales have placed PS3 titles at the second and third positions in Japan so far in 2009.

Yakuza 3 and RE5 were beaten only by Mario & Luigi RPG 3 for DS. We doubt Sony’s that miffed.

See the mountains? They’ve got “Q4” and “price cut” written on them. Keep watching.

Thanks, ChartGet.
