At least in Japan
Sony's fledgling PlayStation 3 console has, for the first time, outsold Nintendo's Wii in the Japanese market.
Sony managed to sell 183,000 PlayStations in November so far, while its rival sold 159,000 Wii consoles, according to Enterbrain game magazine.
Since its introduction the PlayStation 3 has struggled against the much more affordable Wii, which has outsold it in almost all markets thus far. However, the trend seems to be shifting, following Sony's price cuts, the introduction of a lower-priced PS3 with a 40GB hard drive and availability of more games for the console.
