PlayStation remains in a bit of a rut when it comes to the Japanese market, as the PS4 and PS4 Pro continue to hover around a combined 17,000 units. A distinct lack of big new releases is preventing Sony's consoles from pushing up, and all in all, it's been a very quiet summer for the company so far.

Two new Nintendo titles have stormed to the top of the software charts, with the only PlayStation arrival being Mary Skelter 2, which shifted a measly 10,000 copies on PS4, but still ended up in the top 10.

Says it all, really.
