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

Posted By | On 06th, Oct. 2011

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.
