The weekly software and hardware sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was an extremely underwhelming week for the Japanese market. After losing its spot atop the charts for three straight weeks, Level-5’s Yo-kai Watch 3 is back to number one, but it still only sold 32,460 units for the week. No other titles eclipsed 25,000 sales, and No Man’s Sky sold just 22,200 at launch.

The poor software sales translated into poor hardware sales as well, as every console and handheld saw declining sales this week. PlayStation 4 was hit particularly hard, dropping from over 17,000 sales to just under 6,000, despite having four new games in the top twenty. You can check out the full breakdown below.
