Wii U lifetime Japanese sales pass the Xbox 360's

1.6 million units sold since Christmas 2012

The Wii U has now managed to surpass the Xbox 360's lifetime sales in Japan.

The Xbox 360 has sold pitifully in Japan racking up just 1,641,528 units since it launched back in September of 2005 despite Microsoft's better efforts to court Japanese gamers with platform, exclusives like Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon.

In contrast Nintendo's struggling home console has managed to sell 1,643,095 units since it arrived at the end of 2012 which leaves it lagging behind the PS Vita's 2.5 million sales for roughly the same time period. Wii U lifetime Japanese sales pass the Xbox 360's

These sales figures possibly seem pretty sad considering that the PS4 has managed to sell over 300,000 units in Japan alone since it launched there on Saturday taking its worldwide sales to around the 5.6 million units mark.
