Sony Opens 2009 With a Bang: Dissidia and Monster Hunter Take Top Two Spots


Japan - First Week of the year Media Create results are in, and Sony opens with a whopper: Dissidia, Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, White Knight Chronicles, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Spec III, and Gundam Musou 2 are all in the top ten, representing over 159 thousand units sold.

Nintendo answers back with its own heavyweights, Rhythm Tengoku Gold (now at 1.5 million sold), Wii Fit, the ever-growing phenomenon of Girl's Mode, Kirby Super Star Ultra, and Mario Kart also all reaching the top 10 again this week.

Is Sony back, or is this a short-lived planetary-alignment of big releases?

That last sentence was totally unnecessary, quit bashing on Sony. Journalists should be objective, and with that last sentence you are not showing it.

None of the Xbox 369 games made the list, that's a shame especially when Star Ocean 4 is coming in Feb. I guess I'll wait for the PS3 version...
