Dragon Ball Xenoverse: Week 1 Sales Figures for Japan Released

The Japanese sales figures are in for the highly-anticipated Dragon Ball Xenoverse! In its first week in Japan, an estimated 44,221 copies of the PlayStation 3 and 34,690 copies of the PlayStation 4 version were sold, earning the game the top two spots on the list! Combined for both platforms versions, the game did pretty well with a total of 78,911 copies sold in just four days at retailers. In other words, the game sold an average of almost 19,728 copies per day since its February 5, 2015 release.
