Long running cartoony baseball series Power Pro (as it's commonly known outside of Japan) has always been popular in its native country, and the latest instalment has batted its way straight to the top of the Japanese software charts. Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu launched on both PlayStation 4 and Vita, shifting a combined total of 183,000 copies -- more than enough to ensure first and second place on the charts, respectively.

Elsewhere, Nintendo Labo Variety Kit numbers fell hard, allowing God of War to jump above it and land in third place. The PS4 exclusive managed to move another 30,000 copies.

Meanwhile, the hardware charts paint an improved picture for Sony's consoles. After several weeks of low PS4 sales (supposedly due to some stock shortages), the current-gen system has bounced back. Across both the standard model and PS4 Pro, figures sit around the relatively comfortable 35,000 mark.
