Tales Of The World, Tales Of Zombie Cowboys Take Japan By Storm

Japan continues to show a lot of love for the PlayStation Portable, with Namco's Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 3 securing the top spot on the country's bestsellers list.

That's followed closely by more Japanese-centric fare, Sengoku Musou 3 Z for the PlayStation 3. Along with Monster Hunter Portable 3rd in third, the PlayStation family scores the top three spots in Japan.
