Famitsu.com added a new type of monthly sales report to its repertoire today: publisher revenue shares.

For the debut month of June, Sega was the top earning publisher accounting for 20.9% of revenues. Most of that was due to Yakuza Of the End, which sold 376,000 units at a high unit price of ¥7,980.

Nintendo had the month's second best seller with Zelda Ocarina of time 3D. It also placed second in the revenue share chart, with 14.8%.

For 3DS, DS and Wii games, priced tend to be lower than games on other platforms. Zelda, for instance, was just ¥4,800. In terms of software units sold, Nintendo may have been closer to the top (Famitsu did not share units sold figures).
