It was a big debut for Final Fantasy XV last week in Japan, with the new RPG selling over 690,000 copies on PlayStation 4 and nearly 3,800 copies on Xbox One. Thanks to the launch of FFXV, PS4 console sales more than tripled week-over-week to easily capture first place on the hardware chart, but PS4 Pro sales dropped by 200 units week-over-week.

Elsewhere on the software chart, Watch Dogs 2 opened with sales just shy of 40,000 on PS4, and Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition continued to sell well, moving another 8,000 copies and bringing its lifetime total to 934,000.
