PlayStation 4 role-playing game remake The Caligula Effect: Overdose somehow managed to top the latest Japanese software charts by moving a meagre 20,000 copies, and that perhaps tells you all that you need to know. Indeed, it's been another very slow week in the Land of the Rising Sun, with the aforementioned RPG being the only new release to make it into the top 20. 

Oh well, at least God of War has finally passed 100,000 retail copies.

The hardware charts don't fare much better. The PS4 is still sitting around the relatively low 17,000 mark, but we suppose that can't be helped when there's such a lack of fresh blockbusters. Unfortunately for all of us, things are probably going to remain this dreary until a heavy hitter comes along to shake things up.
