Chart champion for Move

PlayStation Move launched in Japan a week ago, with some encouraging performances from launch titles.

The Japanese chart from the 18th to 24th of October put the PS3 2,000 units down on the previous week, shifting 20,128 across the seven day period, but Move software fared well overall.

Beat Sketcher reached the heady heights of 8th place with 22,000 units sold, the highest Move-enabled new entry. Time Crisis: Razing Storm was next in at number 12, no doubt thanks to its inclusion in the amazing-sounding PlayStation Move BIG 3 GUN SHOOTING Perfect Pack which offers the game, a PlayStation Eye, PlayStation Move and the Shooting Attachment for 11,980 Yen, around $136 or £92.

Resident Evil 5 also returned to the charts with another special bundle, known as the Alternative Edition Special Pack, packaging the game with Move and a PS Eye camera. Down in 19th position was Sports Champions, the last Move title to make it into the top 30, a surprise considering its success elsewhere in the world.
