Japanese Charts: Dissidia Still Leads As Post-Holiday Sales Slow

It’s been a good week for Sony in the Japanese game software charts, with half the top 10 composed of PlayStation titles - including Dissidia: Final Fantasy on PSP and White Knight Chronicles on PlayStation 3 -- countdown inside...
With the Japanese New Year gift-giving season now over, sales for the week have predictably slowed – analogous to the first weeks after Christmas in the West. There are again no new entries, with limited movement in the chart overall. Square Enix’s Dissidia: Final Fantasy is once again the number one seller, with weekly sales of 49,000 units and lifetime sales-to-date of 819,000. The budget re-release of Capcom’s Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, also on PSP, moves up to number two, with overall sales of the game in Japan now well on their way towards 3 million units. Although overall sales are low, this has proven a good week for Sony. Fully half of the top 10 is composed of PlayStation titles, with White Knight Chronicles on PlayStation 3 holding steady at number six and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue: Spec III moving up four places to number 11. Namco Bandai and Koei co-production Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 on PlayStation 2 also rises 11 places to number eight, with the PS3 version up five places to number 15.
