Like every Wednesday, Media Create released its software and hardware sales charts, and this time around they’re quite interesting, showing the debut of the PS4’s new and lower price.

  1. Tokyo Xanadu – PS Vita – 88,879
  2. Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 – PS3 – 48,473
  3. Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 – PS4 – 39,017

  7. Picross 3D 2 – 3DS – 30,468
  8. Super Mario Maker – 3DS – 30,150

  19. Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition – PS Vita – 8,164
  20. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – PS3 – 6,998

And here’s the hardware chart:

  1. PS4 – 46,177
  2. New 3DS LL – 18,136
  3. Vita – 15,237
  4. Wii U – 12,843
  5. New 3DS – 4,367
  6. PS3 – 2,088
  7. 3DS – 1,160
  8. PS Vita TV – 761
  9. 3DS LL – 587
  10. Xbox One – 203

The PS4 was pushed to the top by its price cut, while the temporary price drop announced for the Xbox One really didn’t have any visible effect so far. To be fair, the first was heavily advertised in stores, while the latter, at least from what I could see in Akihabara, wasn’t.

On the software side, Tokyo Xanadu pushes hard to the top, beating Pro Evolution Soccer 2016‘s combined sales. Yoru No Nai Kuni also had a strong start, with almost 80,000 copies between three platforms.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the promising Arslan: The Warriors of Legend, that sold just north of 20,000 copies combined.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
