Thanks to a trio of big new releases, the PlayStation 4 stayed atop the hardware charts by moving 46,000 units last week, while also owning three of the top four spots in software. In fact, it was a big week all around for PlayStation, with the top eight games of the week either on PS4, PlayStation 3, or PlayStation Vita.

Starting things off is Final Fantasy Type-0 HD for PS4, which debuted to over 92,000 copies sold. Resident Evil Revelations 2 then takes up 2nd (PS3) and 4th (PS4) place, combining to move over 115,000 units. Battlefield Hardline, meanwhile, performed far better on PS4 than PS3, selling 98,000 units across both.
