Bloodborne definitely debuted with strong sales, and pushed the PS4 to the top once again, beating the combined sales of the usual winner, Nintendo’s 3DS, for the second week in a row.

It’ll definitely be interesting to see if the PS4 will manage to keep this momentum. After quite a few rough months, it seems to have found its stride in Japan, but the true test is when there aren’t big games coming out.

Is this just a “perfect storm,” or will this positive trend continue? We’ll have to wait a few more weeks to know.
