Gears carves into Japan

Chainsaws into top ten.

It seems it's not just us blood-thirsty westerners that enjoy the homoerotic adventures of Marcus Fenix, as Gears of War penetrates the Japanese charts at number seven this week.

Epic's epic sold 33,212 copies and was the only 360 title in the top 20, surrounded by a sea of PS2 and DS, and a brief spattering of Wii.

There was, however, no sign of any PS3 titles. Reclusive little fellows.

PlayStation 2 title .hack//G.U. Vol. 3 took the top spot, followed by Wario: The Seven (DS), Shining Force Exa (PS2), Wii Sports and Wii Play.
