Another Century's Episode R

PS3 lead the way in sales last week, both in hardware and software.

As reported earlier today through 4gamer, Media Create's software sales chart covering August 16 through August 22 has Namco Bandai's PS3 mech title Another Century's Episode R in the top spot with 219,849 first week sales. A couple of notches below was Compile Hearts' PS3 RPG Super Dimensional Game Neptune, with 22,574 unit sales.

These were the only two games to crack the top 20. Older titles continued to dominate in the post summer sales period, with Wii Party crossing the 800,000 mark, Inazuma Eleven 3 edging closer to it, and Sengoku Basara 3 continuing to climb even after having already topped sales of its predecessor.

Here's the top 10 for the week, with life to date sales in parentheses.

  • 1. Another Century's Episode R (Namco Bandai, PS3): 219,849
  • 2. Wii Party (Nintendo, Wii): 68,853 (805,060)
  • 3. Neptune (Compile Hearts, PS3): 22,574
  • 4. Inazuma Eleven 3 (Level-5, DS): 17,986 (797,828)
  • 5. Sengoku Basara 3 (Capcom, PS3): 17,574 (352,618)
  • 6. Tales of Phantasia Narikiri Dungeon X (Namco Bandai, PSP): 16,326 (152,504)

  • 10. Friend Collection (Nintendo, DS): 10,443 (3,389,706)

PS3 topped console sales this week, with DS's combined sales topping the portable market. It's hard to say if the PS3 saw an ACE R boost, as sales actually dropped from the week prior. This falling trend was true of all other platforms.
