Sony took dominance in Japan’s weekly sales chart last week, thanks in large part to the PlayStation 4 price cut, Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 and Gust’s Yoru no Nai Kuni.

PlayStation Vita’s Tokyo Xanadu topped the software chart with 88,879 copies sold, with Nintendo’s Pircross 3D 2 debuting in ninth place by shifting 30,468 copies.

As for hardware, the PlayStation 4 saw a significant boost from 4,071 units to 46,177 whereas PlayStation Vita actually saw a decline despite Tokyo Xanadu’s performance. Similar declines were seen with the Nintendo 3DS family of systems that drew 24,350 unit sales, while Wii U sold 12,843 units.
