JAPAN CHARTS: 3DS still leading in Japan, Dark Souls sees massive sales drop

The 3DS, which has been leading the hardware charts of Japan for so long now, has topped the charts again. And despite a drop of about 20,000 units from last week, the 3DS still sold twice as much as the second highest selling system, the PS3.

The PS3 also saw a drop in sales, selling 25,401 around 3,000 units less than what it did last week.

And the PSP Go surprisingly cracked the double digits, selling a “shocking” 14 units.
