Thanks for the updated LTDs. 360 & PS3 have been selling neck and neck since the last time we got numbers for them. Wii launch numbers pretty low, but imported Wiis have been sold in Korea since Japanese launch, so installed base will be higher than this. The import Wiis will be tracked as Japanese sales, though. Also, official Korean Wiis are region locked to Korea only.

Feeling the heat from Wii, its rivals are trying to attract customers on price. Microsoft lowered the price of its Xbox 360 by 20,000 won to 369,000 won this week. Since being launched in 2006, Xbox is believed to have sold more than 150,000 units in Korea, far more than the 50,000 PlayStation3s.

Sony actually recently put the price of the PS3 up in Korea, but it's true that Microsoft dropped the 360 price. Both moves due to exchange rate movements.
