PS4 Launches and Wii U Passes Lifetime Xbox 360 Sales In Japan

We've talked about the less than stellar sales of the Nintendo Wii U so far but that hasn't stopped Wii U from breaking a new mile-stone.

Wii U has just past the lifetime sales of the Xbox 360 in Japan, Eurogamer reports. In it's home territory, Nintendo has sold roughly 1,643,095 units, edging out the abysmal lifetime sales of Microsoft's Xbox 360 which is a ridiculously low 1,641,528 after 8 years on the market.

Nintendo's Wii U is selling roughly 9,000 units per week at the moment. With Mario Kart 8, the latest in the well loved Mario Kart series and the insane looking, Super Smash Bros on the horizon, expect that number to spike.

Then there was Sony, who was the king of the ring this week in Japan. According to IGN's translation of Japanese website Famitsu, Playstation 4, which launched February 22nd, has sold approximately 322,088 units in its first 48 hours. A pretty solid launch and not surprising given Sony's past dominance in Japan. What is surprising though is the low software attach rate.

Gematsu reports, roughly less than half the people that picked up Playstation 4, bought an extra game along with it. Knack was a pack-in freebie for the Japanese market, so that may have had some impact on software sales but it's more likely a lack of compelling software as most of the available software is geared towards the western market - which will change soon.

So far Microsoft - who hasn't launched Xbox One in Japan yet - and Sony are enjoying a fantastic start with their latest consoles. Selling over 8 million units combined (worldwide) in just 3 short months.
