    Knack? What the fuck

      *Originally a pack-in title sold with the PS4.

      It was a launch title.

      Still sh*t though. lol

    Knack beating Dark Souls? Next I'll be hearing Ride to Hell beating Uncharted 4

      That would be a good day

    none of them are over a mil? man thats shocking

    Wow, the home console business really is on its death bed in Japan, isn't it? Considering that only 7 years ago New Super Mario Wii sold close to 4-and-a-half MILLION copies in Japan alone...

    But then again... If you look at the best-sellers in Japanese gaming history, a vast majority of them are on handhelds.
