The latest Media Create software chart makes for wonderful viewing if you’re affiliated to Namco Bandai. The Japanese publisher has five titles in the top ten this week, including all three of the podium positions.
In first place is the Macross F Hybrid Pack on PS3 with 142,607 units sold during its opening week. This is essentially one Blu-ray disc which combines the Macross F movie with the PS3 game. Buying the hybrid pack is the only way to obtain the Blu-ray version of the film.
Other new entries include Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Impact in second spot. This brawler for PSP sold an impressive 53,148 copies during its first week.
The PS3 versions of two Western games - Dead Island and FIFA 12 - slot into five and six place respectively, while the Xbox 360 version of the former also did well in tenth position with 13,147 copies sold during the latest accounting period.

The PS3 has taken both first and second spots in the Japanese software chart, but failed to translate those sales into new hardware units, remaining in second place to the 3DS.
From Software's Dark Souls, a PS3 exclusive in Japan but cross-platform elsewhere, romped home to the number one spot with over a quarter of a million sales, far outstripping the combined HD remake of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus in second with 91,902.
Gears of War managed an almost unprecedented fourth place as a 360 exclusive, outdoing MMV's gravure battler Senran Kagura in sixth but getting pipped to third by Yu-gi-oh 5D's Tag Force.
In the hardware chart, the 3DS made further gains, increasing sales by over ten thousand units. PS3 dipped slightly whilst most other platforms remained stable. The 360 made gains thanks to the success of Gears 3.
Eight new titles made the top ten in Japan this week. All charts courtesy of Media Create, via Andriasang. Other new releases included Monster Hunter Freedom 3 at 12 and Shadows of the Damned at number 18.

This week’s Media Create software chart sees just one new entry in the top ten, and once again proves just how commercially successful remakes and re-releases are provided they’re based on an established franchise.
Dragon Quest 25th Anniversary edition goes straight to number one with a jaw-dropping 263 398 copies sold during its opening week. This compilation of Dragon Quest I, II and III for the Wii includes a trailer for the upcoming Dragon Quest X as well as anime intros for each game produced by Kamikaze Douga.
There’s often a large disparity between the respective sales figures for titles in the top two spots, and this week is no exception. In second place we have Tales of Xillia with 47 297 copies sold during the last week. If you’ve visited the Japanese PlayStation Store recently you will have been greeted by the sight of plenty of add-on costumes for the game’s cast, selling for about ¥300 (R30) per item.
The rest of the top ten is made up of evergreen titles like Wii Sports Resort and Rhythm Heaven, although none of them managed to shift more than 16 000 copies during the latest accounting period.
