PS3 catching up to Wii sales in Japan

playstation3aSo how about that, Sony tweaks its PS3 business plan and sales improve! Over in Japan, the PS3 has been slowly creeping towards the Wii in sales; the Wii outsold the PS3 by 2 to 1 in October.

If you remember, we reported back in July that the Wii outsold the PS3 by 6 to 1 in June. So to see the comparative figure decrease is a good sign for the PS3.

Sales figures for the Wii is 110,415 units and the PS3 is 47,183 units in October, Reuters said on Friday. So how did the PS3 catch up to the Wii? Reasons point to the recent price cut and a meatier games selection.

Unfortunately, the Xbox 360 is still trailing far behind in sales; it only sold 18,717 units in October.
