Big Headed Baseball and Drums Top the Sales Charts

3DS sees sales spike following Star Fox release.

Konami makes both big headed and realistic baseball games. Both sell quite well.

In a week packed with new releases, Konami's brand of big headed baseball came out on top. The PS3 and PSP versions of Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2011 combined for nearly 200,000 units in their first week.

The PS3 version was on top, with 118,000 units, good enough to beat Taiko Drum Master Portable DX on PSP and Inazuma Eleven Strikers on Wii. The PSP version of Jikkyou followed, leading other newcomers like Sega's anniversary Puyo Puyo game on DS, Star Fox 64 on 3DS and the PSP version of UnchainBlades Rexx, an original dungeon crawling RPG with an all star character designer staff. The 3DS version of UnchainBlades made it in at 20.

Here's the full software chart covering July 11 through July 17, as reported today at 4Gamer. Life to date sales are in parentheses.

3DS saw a sales spike, more than doubling from the previous week to 47,000 units. This easily beat the PSP, the platform 3DS has been fighting with for the top spot since its launch. Unfortunately for Wii, Inazuma Eleven, the first console entry in Level-5's popular DS soccer franchise, did not do much to push hardware sales.
