Far Cry 4 Japan’s Best-Selling Game; PS4 Finally Outsells Vita

While it doesn’t show upon first look at these here software charts, Far Cry 4 was the best-selling game in Japan this week. Devil Survivor 2 takes the official #1 spot, but adding up the PS4 and PS3 versions of Far Cry 4 puts it in the top spot. Add in the couple hundred it probably sold on 360 and the seven or eight Xbox One copies and that’s just a bonus.

1. (3DS) Devil Survivor 2: Break Record – 53,264

2. (PS4) Far Cry 4 – 36,239

3. (PS3) Tales of Zestiria – 29,487

4. (3DS) Yo-kai Watch 2: Shin Uchi – 27,566

5. (3DS) Yowamushi Pedal: Ashita he no High Cadence – 20,510

6. (PS3) Far Cry 4 – 18,366

19. (WIU) Mario Kart 8 – 5,103

20. (3DS) Animal Crossing: New Leaf – 4,910

The game apparently helped shift a few PS4 hardware units, as Sony saw it’s console outsell its handheld for the first time in a long while. Here’s the chart:

3DS – 36,408

PS4 – 17,392

PSV – 12,392

PS3 – 7,211

WIU – 6,807

XBO – 222

No system — not even the 3DS — is really selling well, but the PS4 at least performed less terribly than it has in recent times. For the curious, about 29k of those 3DS sales are “New 3DS” models and 521 Vita sales are what we call “PlayStation TV” (it’s “Vita TV” in Japan).
