To celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the PlayStation 3, Weekly Famitsu takes a look back at some of the big events relating to Sony's console since its launch. One of the most interesting portions of their feature is the part where Entertain reveals the top 5 best-selling titles in Japan so far:
  1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots -- 671,706
  2. Minna no Golf 5 (Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds) -- 408,175
  3. Shin Sangoku Musou 5 (Dynasty Warriors 6) -- 371,443
  4. Gundam Musou (Dynasty Warriors: Gundam) -- 317,580
  5. World Soccer Winning Eleven 2008 (Pro Evolution Soccer 2008) -- 316,533
Not too many surprises here -- the Japanese sure love the Dynasty Warriors franchise. Furthermore, it was revealed that the PS3 itself has sold 2,469,448 units since its Japanese debut. Also worth noting is the fact that 476,334 copies of MGS4 were sold during the first 4 days of its launch, meaning almost 71% of the copies were snatched up during that time. Did any of these games surprise you guys?
