Almost 40 years after its debut, Gundam is still insanely popular in Japan, so it comes as no real surprise to learn that the latest Gundam video game has absolutely massacred the latest Japanese software charts. Gundam Versus - a PlayStation 4 exclusive - soared to number one, shifting a very respectable 121,444 copies. We imagine that it'll be hanging around the top 20 for a number of weeks before it eventually drops off.

Despite Gundam Versus' success, however, the PS4 itself only saw a slight sales boost, with the standard console hopping to 22,704 units. Combined with PS4 Pro numbers, Sony's current-gen platform once again outsold the Nintendo Switch.
