Xbox 360 Tops PlayStation 3 for Second Week in Japan

Not that it’s absolutely earth-shattering news given the lack of recent major PS3 releases, but the Xbox 360 managed to snub the PS3 for the second week in a row in Japan. If you missed my coverage of this last week, you’re probably wondering why that’s significant. Easy: The Xbox 360’s barely had a pulse in the Land of the Rising Sun, so two weeks of up-sales is like NCIS or Criminal Minds suddenly vaulting up the Nielsen ladder to knock House or NBC Sunday Night Football down a peg or two.

To torture that analogy further, the industry’s American Idol, i.e. Nintendo’s Wii, beat both the 360 and PS3 combined, which is starting to sound like Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” given the probability you’re likely to hear it reported each time you tune in a sales update.
