that this week's Japanese software sales are dominated by Sony consoles. Six of the top 10 titles are for Sony platforms -- three for PS3, three for PSP -- with Muso Orochi Z
(known as Warriors Orochi Z
in these parts) for PS3 at the tippy-top.
That's right, a PS3 compilation of two PS2 games is the number one seller with 112,000 units shoved out the door. Last week's winner
, the PS3 version of Resident Evil 5
, has slipped to number two with 61,000 copies sold. Meanwhile, the Xbox 360 version of Resident Evil 5
, which occupied the third slot last week, has slipped all the way to number 12. In its place is Rittai Picross
for Nintendo DS.
Also notable: Resistance Retribution
debuted at number 10, while the New Play Control
release of Pikmin 2
for Wii hit at number six. But what about Sonic and the Black Knight
, you ask? You can stop holding your breath; it came in 30th.
