For A Week? PSP The Best Seller

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VIIThe Media Create Weekly Ranking has been updated with the result of last week software and hardware sales. As expected, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, who managed to move 350,000 copies on it’s first day, ended up on top for the week with 486,659 copies. The second and third place is a double-version entry in the Pokemon franchise, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Time Exploration Battalion (300,295) and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Darkness Exploration Battalion (268,593) respectively. Capcom’s Fate/Tiger Colosseum, another PSP game, ended up at 4th place with 54,880 copies sold. Making it two PSP games in the Top 30 and four in the Top 50 with Monster Hunter Portable 2nd still in the chart after more than 6 months.

The most interesting figures can be seen in the Hardware, with the PSP going top after a long absence at 95,487 units. At least 50,000 of those from the Crisis Core special bundle. These figures does not include the official PSP Slim & Lite, launched with six colors yesterday, so next week will be another interesting week in terms of sales for the PSP.
