Japan Weekly Software Ranking (Mar 9 – Mar 15)

Pretty good week for the PS family this week, Resistance: Retribution debuted strongly with around 16,000 (13,000 according to Enterbrain though) copies to make it into the Top 10 of Media Create. Shin Sangoku Musou: Multi Raid and Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G (PSP The Best), two multiplayer focused games, keep their places in the Top 10 too. Despite a big drop-off from last week, PSP still the top selling hardware for the week with 45,000 units. However, it won’t be long as the new DSi colors went on sale yesterday in the country.

Note: Charts will be updated with more figures when they become available, view the Top 10 after the jump, ranking in full can be view here.
