Check out the PS3 sales rankings for last week:
North America: 1. Killzone 2 (SCEA), 2. Resident Evil 5 (Capcom), 3. MLB 09: The Show (SCEA), 4. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Bundle (Activision), 5. Valkyria Chronicles (Sega).
Japan: 1. Senjou no Valkyria — PlayStation 3 the Best (Sega), 2. BioHazard 5 (Capcom), 3. Demon’s Souls (SCEI), 4. Musou Orochi Z (Koei), 5. Ryu ga Gotoku 3 (Sega).
Looks like the Valkyria sales are getting better, and deservingly so. I’m sure that the newly released DLC, the gamestop $30 sale, the new anime, and all the internet hype have been helping that.
I don’t know what the actual sales numbers that correspond to the above PS3 ranks are, and I’m too lazy to look for them… but all that needs to be said it that Number 1 in Japan and Number 5 in the US is pretty fucking impressive.
