Konami's Pro Baseball 2011 Sits Atop Japanese Software Charts

July 21, 2011 | By Mike Rose

Konami's Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2011 topped the Japanese software sales charts in its debut week, while the majority of the top 10 was new software last week.

For the week ended July 17, according to data from Media Create and as reported by Andriasang, the PlayStation 3 version of the sports game sold a total on 117,759 units, while the PSP version had to settle for fourth place with 73,247 units.

Namco Bandai's Taiko Drum Master Portable DX entered the charts at number two with 80,215 units sold, and Level-5 added another entry to the top 20 with its Inazuma Eleven Strikers at number three.

Nintendo's highly anticipated N64 remake Star Fox 64 3D hit Japan this week, but only managed to reach number six in the charts, just missing out on position five to Sega's Puyo Puyo!!.

However, Nintendo continued to dominate the charts with five entries in the top 20, and Pokemon Company's Black and White still sitting high at number 11.

Below is Media Create's top 20 sales chart for the week ended July 17, 2011.
