Yakuza 4 Was The Best Selling PS3 Game In Japan Last Year.

Despite launching late in the year, we assumed Gran Turismo 5 would probably be the highest selling PlayStation 3 title in 2010. Either that, or some weird mech game we've never heard of. But no, the top-selling Japanese PS3 game of 2010 was actually the fantastic Yakuza 4.

The numbers, reported by Siliconera, note that the free-roaming crime-thriller netted 577,199 units in the region. Gran Turismo 5 was just behind at 563,378. Both titles were way outside of the top-ten best selling games, with the chart being dominated by PSP and DS titles. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd took the top-selling game accolade, securing 3,849,907 units.
