According to the latest Famitsu, the Xbox 360 sold the most units in japan for the week of September 8th to September 14th. It’s like lightning hit the same spot twice.

The console was sold out in Japan at first, then Microsoft had to ship in more consoles, and it’s still doing incredible for the region. Here is the sales breakdown:

• Xbox 360: 28,681 units
• Wii: 27,057 units
• PLAYSTATON 3: 8,050 units

Last week, only 843 units were sold. It seems that price cut may have won over Japan.

    They’re going to need a few more weeks of those sales to catch up to Sony’s numbers but good job Microsoft. Shows how those exclusive and timed exclusive RPG’s are helping them. If sales really pick up Square Enix will probably end up releasing FFXIII for the 360 in Japan.

    I’m pretty sure it’s not because of price cuts, but because of the tales game, and the huge lack of 360s in the region the past couple weeks.
