Besides the very positive debut performance of Splatoon we can see that Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness for Xbox One actually made the chart in 12th place, selling 4,593. That means that almost 10% of Japanese Xbox One users grabbed a copy.

That’s a deed definitely not every Xbox One game manages in the difficult Japanese market, even if unfortunately it didn’t boost console sales too much. Yet, it’s nice to see a bit of green in the chart for once.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. 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.
