Playstation 3 is the best-selling console in Japan for the week ending on March 21st, thanks in a large part due to the launch of Yakuza 4. The latest installment in Toshihiro Nagoshi’s epic crime series managed a massive 384,000 sales during the first few days of release.

Yakuza 4 no doubt helped sell more PS3s than usual, the number was around 50,000 this week compared to just over 26,000 last week. To continue Sony’s domination, the PSP did pretty well, too. The sales of the PSP were just over 39,000, which is consistent with the week before.
