<< Last week’s software sales chart

 

Last week, D3 Publisher released Earth Defense Force 2025 in Japan, and the game sold nearly 155,000 copies on PlayStation 3, with another 23,000 copies sold on the Xbox 360.

 

Meanwhile, the hunting-action genre proves itself to be a stable source of income once again, as Tecmo Koei’s Toukiden sold another 43,000 copies for the week on the PS Vita, and an additional 33,000 copies on PSP. It should be interesting to see where the game ends up by the end of the year.
