Last week was a big one for new releases, with Sony’s PlayStation 4-exclusive Bloodborne topping the chart at 152,000 copies sold. While there was a bit of a dip, PS4 console sales remained high, moving another 45,000 units.

Elsewhere, Sword Art Online: Lost Song debuted strong, combining to move nearly 195,000 across PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Keeping the momentum going, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 sold 198,000 on PS4/PS3/PS Vita, while Senran Kagura: Estival Versus on PS4 and PS Vita combined to sell 75,000.

It wasn’t all good news though, as Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance on PS4 was the lowest charting debut in 13th with just 22,725 in sales.
