yakuza-3-playstation-3February was an excellent month SCEJ and Yakuza 3 has really proven to be a powerhouse title for the PS3 in Japan.  The title sold more then 370,000 units and helped move more then 36,000 PS3 consoles in the land of the rising sun.

This is great momentum for the PS3, which recently had some competition from the JRPG courting Xbox 360. The Wii amazingly was in a distant 4th place.  Overall the PlayStation brand moved over 77,000 units of hardware in the short month of February.
