Well, I asked for more sales in the Media Create charts and I got them. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle released this past week with over 425,000 units sold. Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn also released in Japan for 184,018 units sold. In addition, both the 3DS and PS3 saw significant boosts in sales.

An important milestone is coming up soon for the PSP. Sony’s original portable is sitting at 19,981,635 lifetime units sold. If it keeps its current pace, the PSP will pass 20,000,000 units sold in Japan in 3 to 4 weeks.

Ragnarok Odyssey Ace | Media Create

Also of note, Ragnarok Odyssey Ace, the updated version of one of our favorite games from last year, released this week with sales of 31,622 units. While this may not be the best numbers, they do seem to be in line with the 100,000+ units that the original version sold. Ragnarok Odyssey Ace has been confirmed for release in the west
