Tales of Xillia Tops 500,000 Sales First Week

PlayStation 3 takes the top hardware spot too.


Those impressive numbers Namco Bandai shared for Tales of Xillia last week were more than just shipment figures. It turns out that the game actually managed to sell over half a million copies in its first week.

Media Create's weekly sales charts list first week sales of 525,605 units for the latest Tales game, easily giving it the top spot for the week. The PS3 dominated the top five, with Resident Evil Revival Selection coming in at second with 93,768 units, Resistance 3 in third with 20,342 units, and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd G HD remaining in the top five with an additional 20,162 unit sales. PSP's Grand Knights History fell to fifth following its debut in first place last week.

Here's the full top 20 for 9/5 to 9/11, via 4gamer. In parentheses are publisher, release date and life to date sales.

Xillia, and possibly Resident Evil too, gave PlayStation 3 a huge boost in hardware sales. The system doubled from last week to 64,786 units, taking the top spot from the 3DS for the first time since Nintendo slashes the 3DS price. Namco Bandai released a PS3 hardware bundle for the game.
