Dragon Quest has done it again in Japan, as the series' latest instalment has absolutely demolished the most recent software charts. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age shifted a whopping 950,315 copies on PlayStation 4. Impressively, the home console version wasn't that far behind the 3DS edition, which clocked in at 1,148,888 copies. That's a big win for Sony's system.

Naturally, the release of such a huge game boosted PS4 hardware sales significantly, with the console chalking up 93,356 units across the standard model and PS4 Pro.
