Nintendo sold three Wii's for every Sony PlayStation 3 sold in Japan this January

During the holiday season, Nintendo sold two Wii's for each Sony PlayStation 3. It appears that in Japan, Nintendo's strong trend continues, and they are currently selling 3 Wii's for every single PS3 sold. The official figures are 405,000 Wiis sold to 148,000 PS3's. If this trend continues, Sony will likely cut PS3 prices in Japan by the end of the year.Source: 1Up

Not fast enough, if they want to stay in the game they should do it in the next couple of months.
