Selling less than 16,000 copies, the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster on PlayStation 4 was able to capture first place in Japan last week, thanks to a very slow release period.

Outside of FFX/X-2 HD, the only other new game to chart was Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on PS4, which sold 6,900 copies and finished in 5th.

Elsewhere, Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition held steady at 3rd, while PS4 hardware sales dropped by 4,500 to 11,500, but it managed to re-capture first place.
