Heavy Rain makes a splash in Japan

Resi 5: Gold Edition top of the pile.

Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition - the re-release with added DLC - has shambled to the top of the Japanese software chart this week.

The PS3 version sold 143,339 units to take top honours, according to Media Create data extrapolated on NeoGAF. The Xbox 360 version, on the other hand, was nowhere to be seen.

Other notable newcomers were Heavy Rain (sixth) and Dante's Inferno (14th on PS3, 35th on Xbox 360). Despite a top 10 finish, Heavy Rain only shifted 26,775 units.

Namco Bandai's PSP Monster Hunter clone, God Eater, was pushed into second place, followed by New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Dragon Quest VI (DS) and Friend Collection (DS).

Wii Fit Plus, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's World Championship 2010: Revenge of Arcadia (DS), Star Ocean: The Last Hope (PS3) and Wii Sports Resort rounded out the top 10.

In the hardware stakes, Sony and Nintendo were nearly neck-and-neck.

DS took the lead with a combined 44,821 units sold (DSi XL sold most), followed by PSP with 34,167 units, PS3 with 32,130 units and Wii with 31,652 units.

Xbox 360 sales were even lower than normal at 2453 units, and PS2 bottomed the pile with 1883 units.
