Japanese charts - Assault Horizon and 3DS tops, PSPgo delisted by Media Create

Media Create has released sales data for the week of October 10 through 16, and the Japanese market apparently went rather gaga over Ace Combat: Assault Horizon in a week full of new releases.

Assault Horizon, other newcomers take software

Namco's title moved 149,470 units on PS3 during its three days on the market, and the Xbox 360 version landed at number six on the chart with 20,523 units moved.

The Japanese version of Just Dance Wii debuted in second place with 90,039 units moved, and Forza Motorport 4, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Class of Heroes Final and Clock Zero rounded out the week of newcomers in the top 20.

  2. Just Dance Wii (Wii): 90,039
  3. Winning Eleven 2012 (PS3): 61,787
  4. AKB1/48 If I Loved an Idol in Guam (PSP): 34,114

Hardware flattens, PSPgo delisted

Hardware numbers weren't much different compared to last week, and 3DS stayed on top despite only having one offering in the software top 20.

The biggest change for the week, was PSPgo being removed from the chart.

The handheld has been moving only double digits for eons, and with Vita set for release, it only made sense for the firm to stop tracking its sales. Meanwhile, PS2 is still moving units, and sold 1,280 for the week.

Hardware figures are below, with last week's sales in parentheses.

  • 3DS: 55,025 (58,504)
  • PS3: 28,596 (30,362)
  • PSP: 25,271 (25,401)
  • Wii: 12,161 (10,301)
  • DSi LL: 2,721 (2,382)
  • DSi: 1,999 (1,679)
  • X360: 1,887 (2,411)
  • PS2: 1,280 (1,351)
  • DS Lite: 71 (52)

Thanks, Andriasang.
