PS3 outsells Wii in Japan during November

playstation3According to Reuters, Sony has something to celebrate since its PlayStation 3 outsold Nintendo’s Wii in November for the first time ever in Japan.

In the month of November, Sony sold 183,217 PS3s while Nintendo sold 159,193 Wiis, according to figures from Enterbrain. While Sony has been on the upswing in terms of sales lately, Hiroshi Kamide, KBC Securities analyst doesn’t think it’ll persist through the holidays.

"Overseas, I don’t really see the PS3 doing that much at Christmas time primarily because it’s still more expensive than the other machines and has less software. It’s nice to see the system selling much better than six months ago. But is it a sustainable trend? Is it going to really escalate from here? I’m not so sure."

With the impending Japanese release on December 1st, Nintendo is hoping it’ll attract new fans with the launch of Wii Fit and its accompanied Wii Balance Board.
