Dragon Quest XI PS4

After selling a combined 2.1 million copies in its first week in Japan, Dragon Quest XI managed to move more than 500,000 copies in its second week. 200,000 of those sales came on PlayStation 4, bringing its two-week total on the platform to 1.15 million.

Further down the chart, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for PS4 debuted in 5th, selling more than 30,000 copies.

Because the New 2DS LL saw a massive week-on-week drop, the PS4 was able to finish 2nd in hardware, but it couldn’t top the Nintendo Switch.

According to Media Create, here’s the 20 best-selling retail games, along with how each system sold in Japan from July 31 to August 6, 2017:
