But the real winner is something else entirely.

It looks like the PS4 Pro managed to do enormously well in Japan- during its launch week, it managed to sell 65,194 units (which is especially impressive when you consider that only four days of sales were really tracked for the platform). Given the price of the PS4 Pro, the fact that the PS4 Slim has been the unit that Sony has been trying to push in the region, and just the state of Japan’s home console market, that is enormously successful.

Overall sales of the PS4 came to 93,512 units, which is exceptionally good, and for any other week, would have managed to make the PS4 Pro the winner in Japan by far- but during this week, managed to represent it being outsold by a factor of almost three by something else.

Nintendo’s NES Mini has been a great big success worldwide- that includes Japan too, where, during its first week on the market, which was last week, the system sold a staggering 262,961 units, making it the undisputed winner. Of course, the Famicom Mini is far cheaper, and is not likely to be a long term product like the PS4 Pro is- but it’s an amusing dampener Nintendo put on the PS4 Pro launch nonetheless.

Regardless, it is good to see signs of life in the console market in Japan again- who knows, if they can keep this up, the high end gaming market in Japan may yet return.

    that is horrible for a launch of a sony console should be 100k+ and sold out.

    • LifeOnMars

      Pease remind me what are Xbone sales figures ?

    • Hvd

      you do understand they make like $12 off these consoles right?with the loss the ps4 had at launch the failure of ps4 slim,the failure of ps vr and the failure of ps4 pro tell me how much they are making again vs a 400b ms and xbox company?

      numbers dont matter you you dont make any money..lmao

    • LifeOnMars

      Unfortunatly numbers do matter, without a good good user base delelopers will not support the console.

    • Hvd

      what matters is the user base.40m ps4 sold only half use psn.out of the 20m xbox ones sold 16m use xbox live that play halo 5.

      ps4 gamers are loners that just want to play uncharted.xbox one gamers are more involved with the community and love multiplayer games like titanfall that sold 10m and halo 5 that sold 16m.

    • LifeOnMars

      There are 21 million PS plus subscibers and 65 million active subscribers to the Playstation Network.
      Xbox One is a Big Failure being outsold 2 to 1 by PS4.
      PS4 Pro is the most powerful console onthe planet and will bo for over a year.

    • Hvd

      now the number is 65m? i dont believe any thing on any numbers sony lies about.

      now its a 65m?….lmao.you are full of it like cerny is.

      “PS4 Pro is the most powerful console on the planet and will be for over a year”the ps4 runs games better the ps4 pro cant even do 4k upscaled 60fps on a remaster of a remaster of a remaster.

      the ps4 pro is a joke..lmao

      Don’t you realise that Playstation network is free, Xbox live has never been free.
      PlayStation Network is free to join, and offers all sorts of gaming, social and entertainment features for you to enjoy as soon as you sign up, including playing your games online. … PS Plus is also required for online gaming on PlayStation 4.

    • Hvd

      just stop why you are ahead.giving out false numbers and more lies.

    • LifeOnMars

      Just grow up fanboy/fangirl. I have owned Xbox, Xbox 360’s in the past as well as Nintendo SNES,64,Wii,Atari and Saturn. If a console is good and has good games and also good value then I will buy it. As I said before if Scropio is £349 and not built like a 80’s VCR, reliable and is well supported then I will buy one.

    • Hvd

      follow your own advice and grow up and see sonys lies.

    • LifeOnMars

      Have you ever owned any other console ?

    • Hvd

      atari,nes,snes,sega genesis,drea cast,3do,ps1,ps2,xbox,ps3,xbox 360,xbox one and i have a gaming pc.

      im 41 years old and have games since atari days there WAS a reason i didnt buy a ps4 this gen.

    • LifeOnMars

      Same reason I did not buy Xbox one this gen.

    • Hvd

      you made the wrong choice.zero AAA exclusives since uncharted 4 until some time next year.thats not a console i want any part of.im glad i didnt buy a ps4 and inever will but a sony console again.

    • LifeOnMars

      your loss for being a fan boy, as I said I may consider Scorpio when it released over a year from now, If it is £349 or less,not built like an 80’s VCR,well buit with software support and the PS5 is not less than 12 mths away.

    • Hvd

      not my loss at all.as far as the ps5 goes it depends on how the xbox scorpio does.if its kicking the crap out of sony and with the failed ps4 slim,psvr and ps4 pro launches the xbox scorpio
      will destroy sony

      then we will see how long until the ps5 take to come out.’

      ps if i dont care for a console and dont waste any money its a gain not a loss.derp..derp..derp..

    • LifeOnMars

      Maybe in an alternate reality. But you are clearly deluded, PS4 own this gen the sales figures do not lie. I could agree with you ,but the we would both be wrong.
