Mario Party: Island Tour and PS Vita top the Media Create charts

Media Create has released its sales charts for the week ending March 23, and amid a week full of new releases, Mario Party: Island Tour topped all sales with 132,668 units moved. The PlayStation Vita was also the hardware darling of the week with 35,374 units sold, up from 28,270 the previous week.

Samurai Warriors 4 debuted at number two with 120,452 units sold on PlayStation 3, and the much-hyped version Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes came in at number three on PS3 with 119,615 units sold, just missing out on a second place with 837 units. The game also moved an additional 91,903 units on PS4, bringing its total to 211,518, making it the second best-selling title of the week.

However, if you look at Famitsu’s chart, MGS5 came out on top with 151,300 units sold.

If you count the ninth-place PlayStation Vita version of Samurai Warriors 4, the title moved 160,049 units, which would make it the third best-selling title of the week.

J-Stars Victory VS came fourth and fifth respectively for PS3 and PS Vita, with total unit sales at 216,061, making it the best-selling title of the week.
