The weekly Japanese software sales figures from Media Create are in, showing that SEGA's Yakuza 3 on PS3 has done gangbuster business for the publisher - and the platform holder if early hardware figures are to be believed.

The title screamed to the top of the chart in its first week of sale (23/02 - 02/03), nestling itself 153,000 sales clear of the nearest contender Shin Sangoku Musou MULTI RAID (aka Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce) for the PSP from KOEI.

You can see the Top 30 in full below. For the Top 10, this week's sales and life-to-date sales are shown at the end.

I was in Tokyo, Japan when this came out and there was adevertising everywhere!
Looks like SEGA will do well with this title, definately one to get that comes close to Shenmue style which i love. Expect it to be a while untill it hits the UK.
