It's A Big Week For PlayStation 3 Games In Japan

A new face joins the list of bestselling games in Japan this past week as A.C.E.: Another Century's Episode: R for the PlayStation 3 becomes the country's currently bestselling game. It's not the only PS3 game enjoying top ten status.

The other, which debuted in third place on Media Create's sales chart, is Chou Jigen Game: Neptune. You know, the one about the "game industry" that features busty, anime-style anthropomorphized video game consoles? It must be a very good game if it's selling so well.

Last week's champ, Wii Party, continues its march to a million sales in Japan, closely followed by Level-5's latest sports role-playing game for the Nintendo DS, Inazuma Eleven 3: Sekai e no Chousen!!
