Media Create published its weekly analysis of last week’s results on the Japanese gaming market, and it included some interesting information about the performance of the top-ranked game, Warriors Orochi 4.

The firm starts by repeating what we already knew from Wednesday’s top-20 charts, with the game selling just north of 124,000 units in total, among which 100,831 were on PS4, over four times as many units compared to the Switch version, which sold 23,660 copies.

That being said, while the PS4 version sold a little less than the same platform for Dynasty Warriors 9 (which debuted with 117,495 units), the percentage of units within the initial shipment that were actually sold to customers is 91.15%, which the firm defines as “extremely high” for the series.

By comparison, Dynasty Warriors 9 sold only 70.59% of its initial shipment during its first week.

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.
