VGCharts Jacob Mazel writes: This is a huge week in sales for Japan. Smash Brothers sold roughly 1,000,000 units in its debut week, but two other titles debuted with sales of over 100,000 – including Devil May Cry 4 which hit 205,000 for PS3. The Smash Brothers debut is the largest opening week in Japan in at least nine months. Riding on Devil May Cry 4's coat tails, four other PS3 titles were in the preliminary top twenty this week – quite the feat considering that no PS3 title had appeared in the preliminary data since early December.
-Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 all sold far more hardware and software than last week because of two key releases – Super Smash Brothers Brawl (Wii), and Devil May Cry 4 (PS3 and Xbox 360).
-Sony platforms had more titles in the preliminary data than the Nintendo platforms did.
-Smash Brothers outsold Super Mario Galaxy lifetime sales in Japan in one week
