Resident Evil ORC Beats Mario Party 9 and Conception For Top Sales Spot

 

Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City came out on top of a pre Golden Week release flood. The PS3 version sold 252,525 units, taking the top spot in Media Create's sales chart. The Xbox 360 version also made it into the top 10, with 16,285 units sold.

PlayStation Vita had one of its biggest post-release hits thanks to Gust. Surge Concerto: Ciel nosurge, an original game from the developer who's known mostly for the Atelier series, placed fourth with 33,324 units. Its release appears to have given PlayStation Vita a boost back into five digit sales, with 12,299 hardware units sold for the week.

Other top twenty debuts this week include Mario Party 9, Conception, the PSP port of Steins;Gate Hiyoku Renri no Darling, the latest Idolmaster Anime hybrid pack on PS3, Dynasty Warriors VS, and the PSP conversion of Papakiki.
