Wii high in Japan, trounces PS3

Nintendo consoles beating Sony three to one

TOKYO — Nintendo’s Wii beat rival Sony’s PlayStation 3 nearly three to one in the Japanese market in January, game mag publisher Enterbrain said Tuesday.

According to numbers compiled by Enterbrain, Nintendo moved 405,000 Wii consoles last month, while Sony sold only 148,000 PS3s.

Both consoles launched in Japan in November and have encountered little competition from Microsoft’s Xbox 360.

In a statement, Enterbrain prexy Hirokazu Hamamura said he expected the PS3 to do better as more titles hit the market. He also speculated that Sony may cut the price of the console this year. But the Wii, he added, “will stay in the sales lead.”
