Japanese Charts: Oct 1 - Oct 7: Resident Evil dominates charts




Capcom horror Resident Evil 6 sold 634,000 copies on PS3 in Japan last week, with another 41,000 copies sold on Xbox 360.

This made it by far and away the most popular title in the Far East last week, although Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 still performed well too, selling 223,884 copies on PS3 alone.

On the hardware side, PS Vita has now sold over 1 million units since launch, although in comparison to 3DS (which has sold over 7.5 million units), it's performing pretty poorly.

Here's the software charts.

Dragon Quest is 20th in the Japanese charts? I thought that would be dominating. It's absolutely huge in Japan, wonder why its so far down the list?

They are probably being sensible and waiting for some decent Vita games to turn up before forking out on something that will only gather dust, like everybody else in the world. :)

They may not have much but Persona 4 The Golden pretty much sells it to me. Plus I really want to try Gravity Rush as I love its style

It would take more than 2 games to sell any console to me, no matter how much I liked them.

Well yeah but I dont doubt there are more games coming in the future. I'd definately fill it up with all the downloadable JRPGs that I cant fit on my current PSP. Trails in the Sky, Persona 1 - 3, some of the Final Fantasies, etc. I'd own one now if I had the money for one

Just wait till a monster hunter game comes out for the vita then it will sell thousands in japan. They sure do love those giant monsters.

Amazing how the PS2 is still selling in some territories. It might not be a lot, but the platform is over ten years old. Remarkable stuff.
Shnoorum's avatar
If the PS2 was still making games I would happily buy games for it. I'm a much bigger fan of last gen than this current gen. Speaking of which, I just bought a PS2 for £19.99! Huzzah!

I think PS2 had the best games, There were so many good games released for it. On the PS£ you get the odd franchise that kicks ass - but then nothing for 6 5 years except sequels to said original game..

Still play mine, Shnoorum. Last gen I was a casual gamer really, wouldn't say I'm hardcore now but I know much more than I did. I missed out big time on some awesome games. :(
Shnoorum's avatar
I adore the original Xbox and PS2. Basically anything older than the current gen all the way back to the PS1 era. Things were so much less complicated without all these pre order bonuses and DLC muddying up everything. Instead almost every game had unlockables already included on the disc to keep you playing. I miss those days...

the Japanese do love their handhelds, my brother worked in Japan for 6 months last year. he said every time he got the train everyone is either on a DS or PSP, and the office building he worked in had them everywhere! even the security at the front desk sat there playing PSP's haha.

I think it's no surprise that RE6 has topped Japanese charts! PS3 is always selling strong in Japan though and so do Handhelds.
