In early April, Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata said that “the Wii is in the most unhealthy condition since it hit the Japanese market”. By looking at figures from Gama Sutra this is clearly the case. For the second month in a row, the PS3 has outsold the Wii in Japan.
The PS3 sold 108,530 units in April while the Wii only managed to sell 67,117 during the same period. There is little doubt that this is due to the Blu-Ray release of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children which happens to come with a demo for the yet to be released Final Fantasy XIII.
In March, the PS3 outsold the Wii, 146,948 to 99,335.
