Dragon Quest V, PSP remain at top of Media Create Charts

PSP crosses 10 million, reports tracking firm.


The numbers may be lower, but not much has changed over one week's time for Media Create's weekly sales charts. Dragon Quest V is still at the top of the software chart, with the PSP beating out the DS in hardware.

DQV sold an additional 190,438 units in the week covering July 21 to July 27. Following the close of this week's reporting period, Square Enix announced that the DS remake of the Super Famicom classic has gone on to cross the million mark in shipments.

The PS2 version of Konami's Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 15 debuted in second this week with 83,855 units. The Wii version debuted in 10th with 21,665 units.

In between the two versions of the baseball title were Gundam Battle Universe (Namco Bandai, PSP, 42,860 units), Legend of Heroes: Sora no Kiseki the 3rd (Nihon Falcom, PSP, 38,805), Siren New Translation (SCEJ, PS3, 34,532), Katei Kyoshi Hitman Reborn! DS Flame Rumble Hyper (Takara Tomy, DS, 31,546). Wii Fit (Nintendo, Wii, 29,607), Wario Land Shake (Nintendo, Wii, 25,377), and Mario Kart Wii (25,359).

Of these, all but Mario Kart, Wii Fit and Gundam were new releases. Siren's retail release was preceded one week before by two days of limited sales of a downloadable version on the PlayStation Network. Sony has not provided sales information for this version.

A number of games debuted outside of the top ten: Kirarin Revolution Minna de Odorou Furi Furi Debut! (Konami, DS, 13th place), Twilight Syndrome (Spike, DS, 27), Mezase!! Fishing Master Challenge the World! Version (Hudson, Wii, 32), Samurai Spirits Roku-ban Shoubu (SNK Playmore, PS2, 34), Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus (Arc System Works, PSP, 41), Guitar Hero 3 (Activision, Xbox 360, 44). The PS2 and 360 versions of Bully, arriving from Bethesda Softworks, debuted at, respectively, 17 and 20.

PSP dropped by about 7,000 units from last week, selling 67,452 units this week. This was still good enough to beat the DS Lite, which rose a bit from last week to hit the 56,968 mark.

In the console race, Wii was dominant once again with 41,024 units sold for the week, besting the PS3 (10,692 units), PS2 (9,291), and Xbox 360 (4,941).

Media Create's figures apparently came in line with Sony's own internal figures today. While Sony reported during E3 that the PSP had crossed the 10 million mark in domestic sales, Media Create reported the same thing today.
