Everybody's Golf was at the top of the PS4 digital sales chart last week, but Media Create is doubtful about its performance at retail.

Sony Interactive Entertainment released its PS4 sales chart for the Japanese PlayStation Store related to the period between August 23rd and September 3rd.

Below you can check out the full chart:

  1. Everybody’s Golf
  2. Dragon Quest III
  3. Undertale
  4. Rainbow Six Siege
  5. Resident Evil Revelation: Unveiled Edition
  6. Dragon Quest II
  7. Dragon Quest X All in One Package
  8. Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition
  9. Kaiji VR: Zetsubo no Tekkotsu Watari
  10. Dragon Quest XI
  11. Nights of Azure 2
  12. Horizon Zero Dawn
  13. Dragon Quest
  14. Mega Man Legacy Collection
  15. Gravity Rush 2
  16. Yomawari: Midnight Shadows
  17. Bloodborne
  18. Mega Man Legacy Collection 2
  19. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  20. Windjammers

Everybody’s Golf was at the top, followed by Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, which retains part of its momentum since last week’s first place. Toby Fox’s Undertale also remains solid in third place, confirming its status as a cult title even in Japan.

Dragon Quest XI appears to be slowing down, placing at the bottom of the top-ten, while Nights of Azure 2 debuts in an unflattering 11th place.

Everybody’s Golf is also the focus of this week’s Media Create analysis. The game placed first at retail too, selling 100, 719 units, and this is perfectly in line with its predecessor on PS3, Everybody’s Golf 6/ Hot Shots Golf 3, which debuted with 101,000 copies sold as well.

That being said, that was a re-release of a game that was launched a year earlier on PS Vita, so selling the same number as a re-release is “not necessarily a satisfactory result.” Also, Everybody’s Golf  released on smartphones on July 4th, and has been performing relatively well with three million downloads as of August 21st. This means that the synergy between the console and mobile versions is limited.
