Yakuza Ishin meanwhile sells more on PS3 than PS4.
After the initial launch of the PlayStation 4 in Japan, and with a full week to affect the sales of software and hardware alike, it was rather surprising to see Knack – previously last week’s number 1 – get knocked down to second place by Harvest Moon: Tsunagaru Shin Tenchi according to the latest Media Create software charts.
While Harvest Moon sold 130,782 units in its debut, Knack managed to sell 66,772 units by sheer future of being bundled with the console. Lifetime sales up to this point are 376,076 units, which is pretty much the PS4’s lifetime sales in Japan. Another new entry was Kaseki Horider: Mugen Gear which managed to sell 58,329 units in its debut.
Rather unsurprisingly, the PS3 version of Yakuza: Ishin held fast in the charts with 54,148 units sold while the PS4 version collapsed down to 22,466 units sold this week. The 3DS had a relatively strong week in terms of software though, with games like Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru and Luca’s Wonderful Mysterious Keys and Yokai Watch selling 53,276 and 37,493 units respectively.
