It was a strong opening for The Evil Within last week in Japan, with all four console versions placing within the top 20, and the PlayStation 3 version edging out the PlayStation 4 by less than 200 copies.

Over in hardware, the New Nintendo 3DS enjoyed only a small drop in overall numbers, while the PlayStation Vita finished in 3rd ahead of the Nintendo 3DS XL. And for all of you wondering, the PlayStation Vita TV finally overcame the Xbox One, outselling it by 182 units.
