The PlayStation 3 has seen an increase of 42,000 units in sales, to reach 62,527, a number normally reserved for the Nintendo DS or for the PlayStation Portable. The Advent Children Blu-ray movie...

Sony's PlayStation 3 Outsells the Nintendo Wii in Japan 200°
April 8, 2009 // 2:23 pm - Sony's PlayStation 3 has outsold Nintendo's Wii console in Japan for the first time in 16 months.

PS3 Outsells Everything Else in Japan Thanks to Yakuza Influence 250°
March 6, 2009 // 8:21 am - The PlayStation 3 outsold the Wii and Xbox 360 in Japan this week. It also outsold the Nintendo DSi, PSP, DS Lite and PlayStation 2, not something we've seen happen too often.

The hardware boost, propelling the PS3 out of its regular fourth place finish, can be chalked up to the release of Yakuza 3 (AKA Ryu Ga Gotoku 3) for the platform which sold 372,000 copies during the week.

A bundled version that shipped with a white, dragon-emblazoned PlayStation 3 likely helped move more hardware than normal–enough to outsell the Wii and Xbox 360 combined.

To quote: In some ways, we're like, "yay, we get to talk about Final Fantasy XIII all year!" and in other ways, we're like, "...damnit, we have to talk about Final Fantasy XIII all damn year."
