Japanese Sales Charts: One Piece Does the Business for PS3

Posted by Sammy Barker

Massive numbers for PS3 exclusive

One Piece: Pirate Musou – also known as One Piece: Pirate Warriors – gave the PlayStation 3 one of its strongest ever Japanese software debuts this past week, as it topped the charts with a whopping 655,774 units sold. Just to put things into perspective, it outsold the combined total of the remaining 19 titles in the Media Create top 20.

The game’s success also caused a surge in PlayStation 3 sales, with Sony’s home console shifting 65,116 units. That’s almost triple its tally from the previous week, and nearly enough to knock the Nintendo 3DS off its perch. Not quite, though.

It wasn’t all good news for PlayStation hardware however, as the PS Vita slumped to its lowest week yet at just 10,023 units. Hopefully Sony’s Vita Heaven event this week can instil some confidence in the platform, which has been struggling in Japan since launch.
