The Japanese sales chart for the week has been released, and the God of War sales continue to do well. Thanks to the high acclaim the released game is getting and the excitement around it, it has remained firmly entrenched in the second spot for the second straight week. Unfortunately, it wasn’t able to take the top spot, as the newly released Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2018 – Konami’s chibi baseball title – sold an incredible amount of copies to take the top spot.  Elsewhere on the charts, Far Cry 5 continues to hold onto a spot in the top 10, with not many other well-known PlayStation 4 titles making their way to the top sellers.

As far as hardware goes, the PlayStation 4 was once again one of the two highest selling consoles, with the PlayStation 4 Pro also outselling most of the other home console competition.
