PS3 closing the gap on Wii sales in Japan

Sure, the Nintendo Wii is still outselling the other gaming consoles, but in Japan Sony’s PlayStation 3 is starting to close the gap (at least for now).

In May the Wii outsold the PS3 by a difference of 6-to-1, but in June that difference had closed to 1.7-to-1, no small feat for those facing the tiny, plastic juggernaut that is the Wii.

The most significant reason for the change is probably the release of Metal Gear Solid 4, the forth installment in the highly successful Metal Gear Solid series of games, which has been receiving very positive reviews.
