Japan Chart: 51 644 PlayStation VR sold already in Japan! But the Monster Hunter Stories still the No.1 game!


Last week like in all regions released the new PlayStation VR in Japan. Sony sold 51 644 units from the new VR device in the country which is the No.1 currently in the console chart, however, you need a PlayStation 4 if you want to play with it so it’s just a “half” console.

From the game’s side the Monster Hunter Stories still the No.1 game with 67 133 sold units. The 2nd one is the new Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4 with 21 152 sold units and the 3rd one is the new Paper Mario game for Wii U the Paper Mario: Color Splash with 20 894 sold units.

The next new title on the chart is the Kangokutou Mary Skelter on PS Vita at the 4th position from Compile Heart and than comes on the 8th position a package version PS VR game the PlayStation VR WORLDS. The last new title is the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the 19th position with the PlayStation 4 version of the game.

As we wrote before if we would like to be strict the PlayStation VR would be the No.1 console but this is just an additional device for the PlayStation 4.
The real No.1 console on the Japan chart is the PlayStation 4 with 30 154 sold units. The 2nd one is the New Nintendo 3DS LL with 15 905 sold units and the 3rd one is the PlayStation Vita with 8 772 sold units.
