This Week In Sales: Samurai Heroes And Hatsune Miku

Recommended Videos


Media-Create’s latest sales figures clearly show where the majority of Capcom’s Sengoku Basara fanbase is. They also apparently don’t care how “next-gen” a game is, considering that Sengoku Basara 3 is a Wii game essentially ported up to the PlayStation 3. The PS3 version outsold the Wii build by a wide margin.


Meanwhile, Hatsune Miku has been driving some sales of her own for Sega, while Wii Party and Inazuma Eleven 3 continue to go strong weeks after their debut.


The top-ten for the week of July 26th – August 1st is as follows:
