Mario & Co. Dominate in Japan Once Again

wiijapan-feb29.jpg“Nintendomination” just doesn’t seem to be letting up any time soon, at least not in Japan. It’s been over a solid year and Wii’s continue to be unavailable at many retailers, and when some stores do get them in, they sell faster than Sonic on crack.

Enterbrain reports that Wii once again dominated in Japan, outselling the PS3 at a ratio of 4-to-1 (or 23-to-1 in the case of the 360) for the month of Febuary. Software for the Wii also dominated the best seller list.

Here’s how the numbers stacked up: Wii sold 331,627 units, PS3 was a distant second with 89,131 units sold, and (like it always does in Japan) Xbox 360 brought up the rear with 14,079 units (ouch!).

With a total of 1,33 million copies sold, Super Smash Bros. Brawl dominated the software charts in February, and was followed by Wii Fit which sold 309,311 copies.
