Coming to North America and Europe later this year (read our thoughts), Tales of Zestiria launched on PlayStation 3 in Japan last week, easily topping the charts with over 340,000 sales. The game didn’t help out PlayStation 3 hardware sales very much though, with the system only rising by 1,600 to 8,600, finishing behind the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, each of which were down compared to the previous week.
