PS3 Overtakes Wii's Yearly Sales In Japan

Stop the presses, as over in Japan the PlayStation 3 has overtaken the Nintendo Wii in yearly sales for the first time since either console launched.

The news came after Media Create published their weekly figures. The PS3 has now sold 1,017,094 units this year, while the Wii has sold 1,015,513.

Certainly not good news for the Wii and many will question the console's ability to bounce back.
