Japan Quiet: Awaiting PS3 Slimpact
Media Create, the Japanese stat collator, has released its hardware sales figures for last week. Everything ever made, including PS2, has outsold Playstation 3. Given that PS3 Slim is launching in the Homeland next week and Japan has just emerged from recession - apparently - this news is about as surprising as a price cut to a competing model following a new form factor announcement.

The most recent week's sales are actually down across the board, total sales being down some 52%.

Xbox 360: 8,979
PS2: 3,295
PS3: 2,052

Total: 133,798
