This Week In Sales: Other S


4Gamer won’t be releasing sales data this week, so we’re going to be left wondering about The 3rd Birthday’s sales until Media-Create release the source chart they refer to. According to Enterbrain’s top-ten chart, however, Square’s PSP shooter debuted at the #6 position, just below Donkey Kong Country Returns.


Keep in mind that numbers can vary greatly between different trackers, so if you want concrete sales figures, it’s best to wait for the usual Media-Create charts we refer to. It’s also interesting to see Ni no Kuni sticking around in the top-ten for another week, along with Magician’s Quest: The Merchant’s Store of Sorcery, which appears to be the surprise game of the fall.
