Period: The week of February 6th – February 12th (2012)

Top-seller: Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century – 61,784

Nintendo 3DS sales: 67,558 | Total sales: 4,931,954

PlayStation Vita sales: 13,939 | Total sales: 566,503

 

Last week marked the first Suikoden game since 2008. Konami released Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century on the PSP, and the game sold 61,784 copies in its first week. For the sake of comparison, that’s about the same as 2008’s Suikoden Tierkreis on the Nintendo DS, which sold 67,588 copes in its own first week.

 

While Suikoden took the #1 spot on the top-20 software sales chart, Gravity Rush for the PlayStation Vita was at #2. Gravity Rush sold 43,462 copies, but didn’t do much to help declining PlayStation Vita sales, which dipped below 14k for the week.

 

At #3 was Resident Evil: Revelations, with another 26,000 copies sold. Revelations appears to be holding up rather well, but this week’s big releases will probably steal some of its thunder on next week’s sales chart.

 

Major releases to look out for on next week’s chart include: New LovePlus, Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy and Binary Domain.

 

The top-20 software sales chart for last week is as follows:
