Media Create Sales: Battlefield 4 Beats Pokemon X & Y for Top Spot in Japan
By roughly 5K units but still.
You wouldn’t believe it possible that a first person shooter, that too a Battlefield game, would be see a strong start in Japan. You also wouldn’t expect that game, Battlefield 4, to topple the previous number 1 on the Media Create sales charts, Pokemon X & Y, in its debut. But that’s exactly what happened in the week ending November 10th. Battlefield 4 on the PS3 debuted, selling 121,699 units. Pokemon X & Y is only slightly behind at 115,630 units (with lifetime sales at 2,847,101 units). But still, it’s at number 2.

After helping to boost the Wii U’s sales, Wii Party U has dropped to 11th place this week, with 15,969 units sold and a lifetime total of 53,341 units.
