Resident Evil 6 was the #1 selling PS3 Game in Japan for 2012, PS Vita at 1.13 Million Lifetime

January 25, 2013 Written by Jason Dunning

The top 30 selling games for the entire year of 2012 (well, January 2nd – December 30th) in Japan have been revealed by Media Create (originally posted by 4Gamer, translated by Siliconera), and, surprisingly, Resident Evil 6 managed to be the #1 selling game on PlayStation 3.

Staying with Resident Evil, Operation Raccoon City was the 9th best selling PS3 game, with the 3DS version of Resident Evil: Revelations finishing in 30th among all the games. I guess this means we’ll see the re-release of Revelations on the chart again this time next year?

Check out all of the PlayStation games that charted below, complete with their position in the top 30 and the total amount sold, with Pokémon Black/White 2 posted only for comparisons sake:

1. Pokémon Black/White 2 – 2,919,977 (DS)

5. Resident Evil 6 – 833,012 (PS3)

6. One Piece: Pirate Warriors – 828,150 (PS3)

12. Yakuza 5 – 518,224 (PS3)

13. Dragon’s Dogma- 467,375 (PS3)

15. Tales of Xillia 2 – 428,913 (PS3)

17. Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 – 399,340 (PS3)

21. The 2nd Super Robot Taisen Z – 344,018 (PSP)

24.Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City – 338,889 (PS3)

Lifetime console sales were also updated, with the PlayStation 2 still on top:

PlayStation 2 – 21,833,215

PSP – 19,453,023

PlayStation 3 – 8,860,082
