Good news. After a stunning debut in Japan with 81,639 units sold, PS3 sales took a dive on its second and third week. But between December 4 and 10, Media Create recorded a big sales spike for Sony‘s next-gen console. The exact digits: 50,171. That’s a full 60% increase over the previous weeks sale of 31,436.

Demand is always high. According to Media Create, the sales slump wasn’t because Japanese gamers lost interest in the PS3.

On the contrary, the demand for the console remains high. It’s Sony that can’t keep up with the supplies. The scarcity of supply have driven the auction prices to as much as Â¥66,000 (US$ 559). It’s regular retail price is about US$ 496.) So if you’re frustrated because you’re still PS3-less today, it may make you feel better to know the situation is the same all over – even in Japan.
