More Western success in Japan as Battlefield 4 knocks Pokemon from No.1

EA’s military shooter Battlefield 4 has become the surprise game to knock Nintendo’s Pokemon X & Y from the top of the Media Create charts.

The 3DS RPG pair had been in the top spot for four weeks.

However, 121,699 sales of the PS3 version of EA’s game was enough to claim the crown. The Xbox 360 version charted at No.17 with sales of 10,547 units. Ubisoft’s Rocksmith and 2K Games’ NBA 2K14 also entered the charts in 15th and 18th respectively.

Grand Theft Auto V still sits in the Top Ten and is currently in sixth place with lifetime sales in the region of 559,679 units.

Nintendo’s 3DS remains in firm control of the hardware charts with combined sales of 82k units across both the XL and standard models. This was followed by Vita (22k), Wii U (18k), PS3 (12k) and PSP (4k).
