Ubisoft's hit continues to perform, though Freedom Wars takes number one

The PlayStation Vita RPG Freedom Wars topped the Japanese charts last week with nearly 190,000 sales - but Ubisoft's Watch Dogs wasn't too far behind.

Sales of Vita hardware nearly doubled on the release of Freedom Wars, though it still finished a few hundred units short of the 3DS XL. However, the most surprising story of the week was arguably Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, which sold almost 95,000 units across both PlayStation consoles - with more than 63,000 on PlayStation 4.

And it was a busy week on the software chart in general, with every one of the top six spots occupied by a new release. The software top ten is below, with lifetime sales in parentheses:

  • 1. [PSV] Freedom Wars (SCEJ, 06/26/14) - 188,888 (New)
  • 2. [PS4] Watch Dogs (Ubisoft, 06/26/14) - 63,595 (New)

  • 10. [PS3] Pro Evolution Soccer 2014: Aoki Samurai no Chousen (Konami, 05/22/14) - 13,026 (136,893)
