Sony chairman Sir Howard Stringer is, no doubt, more than relieved that PS3's fortunes appear to be turning around - PS3 outsold Wii in Japan over the month of November, the first time Sony's hardware has overturned Nintendo's position, and Stringer is "much more confident" about PS3's future.
Meanwhile, Stringer is bullish in the face of Nintendo's wider appeal, stressing that "PlayStation 3 will come into its own because its [high-end games] are infinitely more fun, demanding and exciting" in comparison to Wii's offerings.
Nintendo's struggle to supply enough consoles to meet the demand is also keeping Stringer warm at night. In Tokyo yesterday, as reported in UK newspaper The Guardian, he informed attendees at a Sony press conference that he is "happy the Wii seems to be running a bit short of hardware". We don't doubt it.
