on December 14, 2016 8:42 AM

It’s Wednesday chums, which means one thing: Media Create sale charts are here. According to Media Create, last week of the Japanese market belonged to Sega’s Yakuza 6, as well as Sony’s PlayStation 4, which has now charted at the number one spot for four straight weeks, following it momentarily being dethroned by the The Nintendo Classic Mini back in Mid-November.

Anyway, let’s get to it, here is the full software chart:

  1. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life – PS4 –  218,168/New

And the hardware:

  7. Wii U: 4,656
  8. Xbox One:1,245
  9. PlayStation 3: 853
  10. 3DS : 314
  11. 3DS LL: 88

As always, it’s important to remember Media Create does not count digital sales for any games, which means these numbers don’t always represent fully how a game did, but it does give us a good idea.

Personally, I’m surprised to see The Last Guardian’s numbers. I don’t think anyone would have expected it to grab the top of the list, but I personally expected it to be a little closer to the top in regards to the number of units it sold. Yakuza 6 beat it substantially, despite having two less days on the market.
