Devil May Cry Art 1

This week’s Media Create software chart looks a little healthier than it has in previous weeks thanks to two new entries charting in the top three. The PS3 version of DmC: Devil May Cry cruised into first place despite opening sales being just over half of what Devil May Cry 4 achieved back in February 2008. This is at least an improvement over the UK market where Devil May Cry’s initial sales were only around a third of DmC4’s.

Other new entry Digimon Adventure took third spot with 47 807 copies sold during its first few days at retail. This PSP title is apparently one of the ways Namco Bandai is celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of the Digimon franchise.
