The Japanese clearly aren’t bothered about lacklustre reviews and race rows: Resident Evil 5 sold almost 400,000 units in its first week on sales, mainly on PS3.

Westerners will be able to buy it tomorrow.

Don’t expect it to be as high next week, if the speed Yakuza’s dropped off is anything to go by.

Last week’s chart here. Thanks, Chartget.
