Warriors Orochi 4

It's been a big week for PlayStation 4 software in Japan, where three brand new PS4 titles have stormed the top of the charts. Straight in at number one is Warriors Orochi 4, shifting a very reasonable 101,000 copies on Sony's system. Its success suggests that Japan wasn't burned too badly by the dismal Dynasty Warriors 9.

Following up in second is The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, the final entry in the Trails of Cold Steel saga. It sold around 85,000 copies on PS4. And then, coming in at number three, we've got FIFA 19, moving a decent 58,000 copies.

Of course, this means that Marvel's Spider-Man has lost its crown after three weeks in a row at the top. However, Spidey didn't actually fall that far, settling in sixth place with a further 23,000 copies sold. Not bad at all.

Again, though, strong software sales weren't quite enough to drag PS4 hardware numbers back up to where they were a number of months ago. The regular system did see a slight jump at 15,000 units -- with the PS4 Pro shifting 5,000 units -- but it's a relatively small increase. Still, a very solid week for Sony.
