Something that’s rather evident from sales charts over the last few weeks is that SEGA are doing rather well for themselves on the PSP by making smart use of their brands. Here are the figures their last few major PSP games (excluding Valkyria Chronicles 2) debuted at:

 

Phantasy Star Portable 2 — 286,896

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd — 241,467

Black Panther: New Yakuza Chapter — 174,213

K-On! After School Live — 170,848

 

In other news, Okamiden on the Nintendo DS did reasonably well, coming in at 84,472 units. Not far behind it was The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki by Falcom at 84,360. Dead Rising 2 followed on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at the #5 and #6 positions respectively.
