Monster Hunter slips from Japanese No. 1

But lifetime sales top 4 million for PSP title

Monster Hunter Freedom 3 has slipped to second in the Japanese software chart, giving way to From Software's Another Century. However, the Capcom game's 68,274 sales for the week ending January 23 have tipped it over 4 million lifetime sales.

There were few new releases in Japan last week, with Arcana Heart on PS3 being the highest new entry at six. Elsewhere, the 360 SKU of Mass Effect 2 made fifteenth with nearly nine thousand sales.

In the hardware chart the PlayStation 3 remained in first place despite the strong software showing for the PSP, although all hardware figures were down over the week prior.
