Not even the debut of Drakengard 3 could dethrone Puzzle & Dragons Z and Pokemon X/Y from the top spots in the Japanese sales charts, with the PS3 title placing in fourth with over 114,000 in sales.

Moving to hardware, the PlayStation Vita saw a huge rise of about 20,000, finishing at just over 50,000. The PlayStation Vita TV didn’t really do much of anything though, with sales just 2 less than the previous period, while the PS3 was up slightly to 24,573.
