Media Create Japan Software Sales: April 2nd-8th

Here’s something you don’t see often. For the first time in a long time, Sony software dominated the weekly sales chart for April 2nd-8th. Six of the ten spots belonged to a PlayStation format game, as the PS2 and PSP held both the #1 and #2 sales spot, respectively. The all new Naruto game for the PS2 went on to sell 75,5k copies. Meanwhile the Japanese continue to demonstrate their love for all things Gundam, as the newest Gundam SEED for the PSP sold 59k games.

Yoshi continues to give it his all, as the little green guy sold another 48k, which raises the question; could we see another million seller for the DS? Musou Orochi refuses to drop off, as it maintains the fifth slot with 36k sold. Likewise, Prof Layton shows that its legs are longer than that of a Victoria's Secret model, as it re-enters the chart for, what may be, one last top 10 sales hurrah.

Hardware results will come soon.

What do you think about The Last Of Us: Remastered?
Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
