Yakuza 4 the best selling Playstation 3 game of 2010 in Japan

Japan love their Yakuza games, almost as much as we like to play cowboys in the west with Red Dead Redemption. So its no surprise that Yakuza 4 is the best selling Playstation 3 game in Japan for 2010.

The game manage to sell 577,199 units in 9 months (was released in March 18, 2010). Sure it isn’t uber blockbuster numbers and it just beat out Sony’s Gran Turismo 5 which was released in November, that did 563,378 units.

Even though Yakuza 4 was the best selling Playstation 3 game, it still came in #16 for best selling Japanese game on all consoles. Damn those Japanese kids and their love for Monster Hunter, Super Mario and Pokemon!

    Funny thing is, Red Dead Redemption did pretty well over in Japan.

    Good for SEGA, the more money they make the better games they can create in the future.

    Just got the game myself. Played it. Loved it. Now, I want to be a Yakuza when I grow up.
