Japan's February software charts dominated by PSP games

Sales for PSP titles in Japan were strong in the month of February according to data collected by Famitsu (via IGN). Four PSP games dominated the top ten, while two of them crowned the top three. Tales of the World 2: Radiant Mythology, which had been at number one for several weeks, is unsurprisingly the strongest seller for February at 288,860 units . It had beaten the month's other top portable role-playing game, Mario & Luigi RPG 3, by a mere 10K units but had a two-week lead. Konami's Winning Eleven 2009 for PSP took third place with 177,399 units sold.

Idolmaster SP, which released in three different versions, ranked-in only at #7. Meanwhile, Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G stays in the top ten at #9. Yeah, you read that right. It's still selling massively, despite being a year old. It just edged out fellow three-million-club member Wii Fit at #10 by 16K units. Check after the break for the full top ten and their respective sales numbers.
