    While I always knew Japan was a handheld market(It’s pretty much common sense) I’m very pleased and happy with the sales of Yakuza 5.

    At first I was thinking they weren’t the best, but quickly realized that the market is literally a handheld population. Glad to see a console Ps3 game hang there for a minute :)

    Oh wow the 3DS, no systems can touch it’s numbers. Damn. Anyway the PS Vita has a slight bump in sales, is it because of the AKB48 bundle or something? lol.
