Black Ops III holds the top spot in Japan

The PS4 SKU of Call of Duty: Black Ops III is still No.1 in Japan.

Sales of Activison’s shooter – published in the region by Sony – were down 63 per cent week-on-week, according to data provided by Famitsu.

The PlayStation 3 SKU falls from third place to No.8 as sales halved week-on-week.

A number of new titles hit Japanese shelves this week. The highest performing was Bandai Namco’s 3DS title Project X Zone 2, which shifted 43,715 units. Meanwhile, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate debuts in third place with 39,858 units sold in its first week.

The story is too old to be commented.

Damn... Didn't know CoD was big in Japan. Quite impressed haha. *goes back to play Black Ops 3*

For a country that, historically, does not really care for FPS games this is quite impressive!

As long as the Japanese keep buying PS4s means more Japanese developers make games, and that will keep me happy as I need a constant stream of JRPGs :)
