Life has not been easy for Sony’s exclusive title DriveClub since it was announced last year. First being hit with a delay and even now when it is available, the game is suffering from server load issues.
There are two types of delays, one of which creates the hype and helps with the excitement/anticipation. While the other is the kind which kills hype and excitement. In the case of Driveclub, the later might be true.
A major Japanese retailer Tsutaya released its sales chart for the top selling games of last week and Sony seems to be doing not so well considering DriveClub sales.
Though we don’t have the exact sales figures but as expected Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is on the top. However, DriveClub failed to make it to the top ten.

Keep in mind that this chart is from one retailer only but since it is a major retailer it certainly gives an idea of DriveClub’s performance in Japan. For solid sales figures, we will have to wait for the official sources.
