Japanese Charts, Jan 14 -20: DMC is number one



This week's Japanese charts are in and it'll be Capcom and Ninja Theory celebrating thanks to the PS3 version of DMC: Devil May Cry debuting at number one.

DMC: Devil May Cry on PS3 managed to shift an impressive 110,429 copies, while PSP title Digimon was the only other new entry in the top ten, shifting 47,807 units.

As you'd expect, the 3DS continues to dominate, not only taking most of the slots in the software charts but also outselling everything else in the hardware charts.

PS Vita is once again nowhere to be seen, though it doesn't help that Sony doesn't seem to be releasing any games for it in Japan. Maybe once the games start to arrive it'll really take off.

Check out the software and hardware charts below.

Digimon Game? Well that brings back some memories,I wonder why those games don't get released over here, I for one would buy the crap out of them just for nostalgia's sake. same reason why I get Pokemon games, pure nostalgia.

I think the main reason is Digimon has really died out in the west

Wii U hardware numbers in the toilet worse than ever.

And the Vita ones are even further round the bend :)

Indeed, but Wii U is in it's seventh week in Japan now, and in it's seventh week the Vita was selling better than the Wii U is now. Will be interesting to see if next week Wii U numbers fall below Vita numbers in Japan...

Considering the rate Vita sales are plummeting it's highly unlikely.

Wii U sales are plummeting demonstrably faster though, and Vita actually has some games coming out in the next couple of months that have relevance to the Japanese market. But I'll see you in next week's sales thread Davey and you can see for yourself :)

Check last weeks, the Vita's sales are down by a 1000 or so more than the Wii U's this week.
