There are no surprises in this week's Media Create chart as Nintendo 3DS exclusive Monster Hunter XX topped the software charts with a frightening debut of almost 850k units. We wonder whether Capcom will use the success as a means to justify another couple of years of PlayStation Portable assets, or whether it's panicking over the fact that the Nintendo Switch is going to force it into upgrading the series' visuals at last.

PlayStation 4 continued its steady start to the year, selling another 34k units or so cumulatively between models. It was buoyed by the release of sexy Splatoon-esque third-person shooter Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, which moved a reasonable 53k units in total. Elsewhere, Horizon: Zero Dawn's still clinging on to the top ten, with its life-to-date sales now nearing 200k units – a very good number for Guerrilla Games.
