Even without the PlayStation Motion Controller
to back it up, Resident Evil 5
has struck gold
for a second time. The PS3 version of Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
in Japan) hit the top of the Media Create sales chart in Japan following its February 18 release, selling 143,339 copies. God Eater
continues to gobble up attention, taking the #2 spot with 64,192 units sold (while passing
500k units sold to date).
Another big PS3 game also debuted in the top ten this week: Heavy Rain
, which fell in at #6, selling 26,775 copies. In a way, the Japanese version is the superior release, because the voice acting doesn't seem to have been performed by French people faking Japanese accents. See the full top ten after the break.
