In Japanese market, Nintendo Wii totally outsells the Playstation 3

Reuters: Nintendo Wii outsells Sony PS3 5-fold in Japan
TOKYO (Reuters) - Sony Corp. took another blow with Nintendo Co.'s Wii game console outselling its PlayStation 3 by more than five to one in Japan last month, raising doubts over Sony's nascent earnings recovery.


Sony sold 45,321 units of the PS3 in May, compared with 251,794 units of the Wii. In April, the ratio was four to one in favor of the Wii, according to Japanese game magazine publisher Enterbrain.

I can't help but wonder how human target Sony PR head Dave Karraker is going to spin this to look like a win for Sony.
