Freedom Wars sticks to No. 1 in Japan

Sony's time-and-crime game keeps a hold on number one in a quiet week for Japan's charts, as Sony works on updates for Freedom Wars to react to fan angst. It sold another 43,000 copies to pass 230,000 sales making it the second-best selling Vita game behind God Eater 2. Panzer Girls managed another 4,000 to pass 35,000 units. Demon Gaze Global Edition sold a couple of thousand copies to land way down the charts, but most Japanese gamers will be waiting for DG2.

With no major new entries, hardware sales dipped a bit, but the Vita still sold over 20,000 units for the week. God Eater 2 on budget arrives this week, with Oreshika 2 to come next before the official summer lull.
