Separated by just 17 copies, Arms for Nintendo Switch was able to repeat at #1, barely fending off Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood for PlayStation 4. If you combine sales of Stormblood and the Final Fantasy XIV Complete Pack though, FFXIV won the week.

Elsewhere on the software chart, Farpoint for PlayStation VR debuted in 4th place, moving 17,100 copies. Further down, God Wars: Future Past for PS4 and PS Vita combined to sell just over 10,300 copies, and LocoRoco Remastered opened in 20th with over 2,100 copies sold.

In hardware, PS4 sales rose to 19,100 last week, putting it 3,300 units under the Nintendo Switch.
