Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Shoots Down Japanese Sales Charts

Hottin' up

Japan may be quite introverted with its video game tastes, but it does enjoy the odd first-person shooter. That’s evidenced this week by the surprising sales numbers for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, which managed to shift a whopping 197,350 units on PlayStation 3 alone.

In fact, it was a good week for Sony’s home console in general, with the big-screen port of Hot Shots Golf 6 also posting a respectable 100,862 units. Assassin’s Creed III added another 16,379 units to its total, while the excellent looking E.X. Troopers stumbled out of the gate with 8,717 units.

The wealth of new software pushed the PS3’s tally up to 34,167 units, but it was still a million miles away from the Nintendo 3DS. After a slight bump, the Vita dipped back below 10,000 units, while the PSP stayed in front at 16,903 units.

You can peruse the full set of figures in the space below.

They need to pay Capcom to make Monster Hunter for Japan and after that drop the price of the vita by a lot. Stop support for the PSP. Have all future PSP game become compatible with PS Vita and only downloadable through PSN. You will need to force peoples hand to stop buying PSP. They need to do this by christmas
