How is being outsold more than 2:1 good news for Sony? Well, the gap was 6:1 in June, so PS3 is catching up, thanks to price cuts and (finally) some decent games coming out for its next-gen console. Sony is also stretching its lead over Microsoft’s Xbox 360, which only sold 18,717 units in Japan during the month.
At this rate, PS3 will be outselling Wii by early next year… Okay, that’s a foolish assertion, but the narrowing of the gap is nevertheless good news for PS3 fans. Meanwhile, Wii owners can contentedly rejoice that its strong sales will ensure a steady flow of games in 2008.
