red dead redemption 2 japan sales

Red Dead Redemption 2 has topped the Japanese software charts, gunning down Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which had been sat at number one for two weeks in a row. Rockstar's open world masterpiece came in at 133,000 copies on PlayStation 4, which is a respectable total. Black Ops 4, meanwhile, is still doing very well for itself in second place, shifting a further 57,600 copies. Impressive stuff for Treyarch's shooter.

Elsewhere, SoulCalibur VI, which has struggled at launch in Japan, has dropped from third place to twelfth, only moving an additional 5,400 copies.

The release of Red Dead 2 didn't do much for the PS4 itself, though. Sony's system is still hanging around the 20,000 mark across the standard PS4 model and PS4 Pro.
