PlayStation 3 Moves Ahead The Wii In Japan
PlayStation 3 is under a lucky star. The Sony console outsold its Wii rival for the second week in a row and sits comfortably on the third spot on the Japanese charts.

On the other hand, Nintendo continues to firmly hold the first position in the charts. The DS console held its throne unshaken thanks to its sales of 81,000 units. Its closest competitor in the charts is the PSP, still far behind with 66,000 sold units.
The complete top unrolls like this:
1. Nintendo DS - 81,000
2. PSP - 66,000
3. PS3 - 53,000
4. Wii - 36,000
5. PS2 - 8,800
6. Xbox 360 - 5,000
At the low end of the ladder, the Xbox 360 is still taking a heavy beating from the PlayStation 2, supposed to be the rival of the former Microsoft console. Guess that miracles don't last for long in the Land of the Rising Sun.
