The weekly Japanese hardware and software sales numbers are in, courtesy of Media Create, and PlayStation 4 is on top for the second week in a row. Sony's console has struggled to gain momentum in its home country, but following a price cut, sales surged last week. PlayStation 4 sold another 30,000 units this week (down from 46,000 last week), which was enough for the number one spot.

In software, Yo-kai Watch Busters: Red Cat Team and White Dog Squad continue to sell strong, coming in at number two. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection launched this week, selling just under 25,000 copies and taking the number three spot on the charts. Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash had a poor opening week with just 14,000 sales (although that was enough for ninth on this week's charts, as there was a fairly weak lineup of new games), which unfortunately could mean the end of the franchise.
