No. 1: Persona 4: The Golden.

It’s happened again. After being dethroned by Dragon’s Dogma two weeks back only to return to position one last week, Dragon Quest X has been once again knocked down. But this time, it’s a PlayStation Vita game – Persona 4: The Golden.

Also notable this week, Resident Evil 6 has joined the top five at number 3. Rune Factory 4 is picking up steam, moving from position 28 to 17. And now that One Piece: Kaizoku Musou is available to the masses, don’t expect to see it, anymore!

Get the full list below. The second number is last week’s position.

    Versus XIII continues to fall down the charts.
    Perhaps people are just getting sick of waiting.

    • Sal Romano

      @AdamBoy64: It’s gone up and down, if I recall correctly.

      • AdamBoy64

        @Sal Romano: Ah, I see. I’ve only observed the last couple of weeks where it’s dropped a spot each week.

    • FinalFantasy_fangirl

      @AdamBoy64:

      The one I noticed thats slipping is The Last Guardian probably because recent events.

    • FaithlessMr

      @AdamBoy64:
      I know I am.

  • FinalFantasy_fangirl

    I wonder when P4 Golden will release here.

    • Sal Romano

      @FinalFantasy_fangirl: I hope Atlus pulls a Persona 4 Arena and gets it out within the same time frame in both North America and Japan.

    I hope Sony puts pressure on developers to make games on the Vita. Resident Evil and Monster Hunter would help make huge sales and Resident Evil on the Vita would be incredible. I hope the 9th is going to have something mind blowing or at least surprising.

  • Zero

    Go Persona 4!

    I think the closer to an actual release date, the higher up the list Versus and The Last Guardian will be.

    I wonder if both games have been on this list since the first announcement? That would be pretty impressive! 5 years or so on the list? That would have to be a record or something haha.

    • Sal Romano

      @Zero: I would assume so. Persona 4: The Golden was actually dated in last week’s issue of Famitsu, so it’s more than likely why it shot up like it did.

  • Akira_Tenshi

    The Last Remnant lol when will they accept the fact it will never release on PS3.

  • talesoffan

    Hope no one takes offense at this but I hope Dragon Quest X bombs. Was really looking forward to a nice traditional Dragon Quest, not some mmoprg.
