Nintendo and PlayStation Games Are This Week’s Best Sellers in Japan

And the pervy looking Frenchman scores!

Japanese gamers can be a fickle bunch. One week a console can be the hottest product around, the next it’s sat on the shelves, begging to be bought. It’s much the same with games, too.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was a top seller in the region when it first released, but a month later and it’s soon sitting at the bottom of the pile.

This week’s biggest game’s from Japanese retail giant Tsutaya have been posted online. Unsurprisingly, the latest games are sitting at the top while the slightly older ones mingle at the bottom. Splatoon stands out in particular though, as it’s been out for quite a while yet it’s still pulling in decent sales. Fair play, Nintendo, fair play.

The full chart is down below, so take a look if sales charts are what you find interesting. Us? We couldn’t really care less; we like playing games more than sitting around pretending to care how many sell.
