Japanese Chart: Tales of Xillia 2 Leads Charge
A slew of new releases dominate the Japanese Top 10 this week, as Namco Bandai's Tales of Xillia 2 claims the top spot with a whopping 364,439 units sold. Europe has only just got Tales of Graces f, so we can imagine the wait for this new entry taking quite a while to hit the West.

The JRPG joins a number of high-definition remasters of classic PlayStation 2 games - namely Okami and Yakuza 1 & 2. All three of them are excellent in their own right - Capcom's artistic adventure title takes #2 with nearly 70,000 units sold, while SEGA's urban crime drama/brawler compilation debuts at #3.

While PlayStation 3 titles form the majority of titles in the Japanese Software Chart, over on the Hardware side it's a different story. Nintendo's 3DS is still riding high on the momentum that it enjoyed over the summer, selling a total of 93,989 units this past week. Worryingly, the PlayStation Portable is outselling the Vita by quite a large margin - and has done for some time.
