<< How to read and understand sales


Last week saw the release of Bethesda and Tango Gameworks’ The Evil Within in Japan. The survival-horror game sold nearly 60,000 copies on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 each, with Xbox platform sales accounting for another few thousand copies sold.


Across all platforms combined, The Evil Within sold 124,244 copies.


The biggest release last week, however, was another game in Konami’s Power Pro Baseball series, with Power Pro Baseball 2014 selling 81,981 copies on PS3 and another 50,836 copies on PlayStation Vita. Total launch sales for the game amounted to 132,817 copies, which isn’t too far below Power Pro Baseball 2013’s opening of 144,216 sold.


Finally, Bandai Namco released Tales of the World: Reve Unitia on Nintendo 3DS. This, unlike regular Tales games, is a strategy RPG spin-off that was initially released on smartphones and has now been ported to the 3DS. In its first week, Reve Unitia sold 47,037 copies, which seems fairly reasonable given the circumstances.


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