Tactics Ogre Tops the Charts

PSP remake sells nearly 200,000 units in first week. Wii sees Mario influenced sales surge.

 
Square Enix will be continuing to push Tactics Ogre through post release download content (shown above).

PSP's Tactics Ogre topped Media Create's weekly sales, selling 176,000 units in its first week. Likely as a result of the remake of the Super Nintendo classic (or maybe it was all those Love Bancho buyers), the PSP saw a slight hardware boost to above the 40,000 mark.

The week was full of new releases, from Dragon Ball Raging Blast 2 on PS3 (the Xbox 360 version, released simultaneously, did not make it into the top 20) to Nintendo's bundling of the Wiimote plus with Wii Sports Resort.

Wii Sports Resort comes bundled with a Wiimote Plus now. So do all Wii systems.

The big drama this week may have actually been in the hardware race. Wii surged more than three fold over the week prior, presumably due to the November 11 release of the red Mario anniversary Wii and the Wiimote Plus. As of November 11, all new Wii systems include the updated controller.
