In a sea of Japanese DS games, two PS3 titles still shine
This week on the Japanese weekly sales charts, two PS3 games make a commendable debut.
Yakuza 3 Way of the Samurai 3
(thanks, Fiddlesworth!) was sucked in and spat out by the top dog Kirby Super Star Ultra
, but it still managed to land in second place, selling 81,047 copies. And who said Japanese gamers don't enjoy first-person shooters? Resistance 2
makes it into the top 5 by the skin of its teeth, selling 33,584 copies. While Grand Theft Auto IV
for the PS3 is still selling relatively strong, taking eleventh place, LittleBigPlanet
isn't doing quite as well -- Media Molecule's title in currently in twenty second place.
Check out the full chart, after the jump.
