Japanese gamers snapped up 235,990 Wiis and 139,494 PS3s over the five weeks period ending June 29 - which means Wii outsold PS3 by 1.7-to-1 (a notable improvement for Sony when compared with the 6-to-1 lead the Wii had over PS3 back in May).
Metal Gear does the business
The release of Konami's magnificent Metal Gear Solid 4 undoubtedly helped to boost PS3 sales in the region but Sony still has some way to go to catch up with Nintendo in the home console gaming market.
In better news for Sony, Japanese gamers bought up 274,131 PSPs over the same period, nudging ahead of Nintendo, which sold 195,714 DSs.
