It seems that after a cracking start in Japan, Sony’s PlayStation 4 sales in the land of the rising sun are dropping. According to numbers releases by Media Create, the initial push in PS4 sales is now apparently slowing down.

According to the numbers releases, PlayStation 4 sold 30,201 the week before March 30th. But for the week ending March 30th, the sales have dropped to 23,327. Another worrying factor for PlayStation 4 is that it only has one game in top 20 best selling games of the week. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes which isn’t exactly a full fledged title, albeit a good one, finished at 20th position selling 12,374 copies. If you compare the numbers for the week prior, that is an 87% drop.

You can find more numbers about other consoles and video game software here. What are your thoughts on the slowdown of PS4 sales? If this a temporary thing? Let us know in the comments section below.

    With no games on both consoles coming out anytime soon and more getting delayed both consoles are going to start tanking in sales till new games start releasing. This is just common sense.

    This holiday with all the amazing games releasing the consoles are going to sky rocket in sales.

    Destiny
    Watchdogs
    Batman Arkham Knight
    MGS Phatom Pain.

    And many more.

      It’s mostly a Japan thing, they aren’t into consoles like they used to. They want games like FF 15, MGS V, and Kingdom Hearts 3. And maybe Watch Dogs.

    PS4 is the biggest fad on the planet, with like all fads people will get bored and move away

    • Dikan45

      You made me laugh yesterday when you commented about the Watchdogs PC footage(which actually ended up being from PS4) looking sooooo good! Thanks for that!

    • Psionicinversion

      looking at it closer with expanded view it doesnt look that good actually, i thought it was just expanding it from the window made it look rubbish even set at 1080p…. then i watched the project cars one which sometimes i couldnt tell if the car was real or in game, sometimes its so hard to tell. If the blue McLaren at the start was in game thats insane as it looked real to me. Judging PS4 watch dogs compared to the project Cars it doesnt look good at all. Blurryness everywhere. it looks good if you just watch it from the little window but not expanded. So prolly look at bit rubbisj on PS4ail

    • Broj

      The game is crap so no one cares what it looks like. It will look way better then what you will achieve on your windows 94 computer.

    • Psionicinversion

      so’s your face but i dont go putting ppl opinions down like you do

    • Dikan45

      Hindsight is a great thing huh?

    • Psionicinversion

      was talking about the sharpness of project cars vs the sharpness of the watch dogs one. Ppl said it was blurry but i actually posted to them just watch it in the little window and it looks good, if you do expand to fullscreen it doesnt look that good and is blurry i thought it was cus of youtube, only when looking at project cars at how sharp (and that was on youtube) it was i thought to myself maybe the footage isnt that brilliant after all of watch dogs

    • Falcon D. Stormvoice

      “This looks amazing!”

      It’s on PS4.

      “Nvm, looks like crap.”

      Ahahaha!

    • iSpeakTheTruth

      lol what a dip sh*t….face the news buddy, you were made to look like a fool

    • Psionicinversion

      people are now saying the PC version looks the same as the PS4 version before nvidia gets there hands on it and modifies it so im going to give them till May 15th show us a PC video that looks much better than the PS4 or im cancelling my pre-order and going pirate the game cus they dont deserve my money. Its not hard to make the PC version look better than PS4, wonder how much sony are paying them to throw the game.

    • Dikan45

      Everything’s Sony’s fault huh? They only look the same on medium settings I read somewhere, I’ve pre ordered PC version

    • Psionicinversion

      yep lol. Why wont they release a PC version though? if the PC version is alot better and dominates PS4 version there just trying pls the sony fans now making the PC guys angry, then closer to if they release a PC version and its way better we’ll be like YEAH thats awesome then the sony crowd will be like wtf our looks like cr@p compared to that blah blah blah they may as well rip that bandaid off now and give ppl time to settle down. Ive still got mine on pre-order cant really argue at £29.95…

      PS4+X1 definately have got a next gen price on it at £48 though lol

    • Dikan45

      It is strange though as the strongest version is usually the version that gets shown off to the public!

    • Psionicinversion

      well after the crying and backlash from the playstation fans there obviously doing a lot of damage control to try and appease them. They obviously darent show off the PC version if it is that much better and it should, alot of PC players have much stronger hardware than whats in the console so it should be better. Someone said to me on the article about consoles going run out of ram at some point. I was on about 8GB ddr3 and someone said only 16% of ppl on steam have 8GB+ RAM so as dakan45 said theres 75 million accounts so 16% = 12 million.

      If 5% have much stronger hardware than the 660’s which most ppl apparently use thats 3.75 million ppl, thats ALOT of people to make a games gfx for. Thats just steam not everyone will have a steam account. Its that market you need to aim for for high gfx settings cus there the ones who are buying the games and buying the decent hardware. The “average” user is prolly a casual gamer and not that interested in alot of stuff.

    • Dakan45

      stop being a r3tard.

    • Dakan45

      stop upvoting messages that insult me dipsht

    • bob

      Says gonna pirate the game and then wonders why there is no games to play on PC and why that platform is slowly dying.

    • Psionicinversion

      ever thought piracy helps? The threat of getting £0 for it is an incentive to offer cheaper games. Also £48 for ps4+x1.. There giving you the consoles for cost price or less… There profit margins are in every game and accessory you buy

    • Dakan45

      lol pc is more alive than ever it has grown more and has higher revenue than the consoles and more exlusives than all consoles combined. 50% of devs work on pc games only 14% on ps4 and even less on xbone.

    • Dakan45

      and the pc version looks better now change your name kiddo.

    • Broj

      You are a fad that needs to die.

    • Falcon D. Stormvoice

      False. Fads are popular at some point.

    • Psionicinversion

      4q

    • cozomel

      Damn, dude, youre on here all the time and all you do is hate on the PS4. You got busted yesterday and you’re just another phony fanboy hater.

    • Psionicinversion

      exactly i dont like either console but hate the way all the sony fanboys kick cr@p out of the X1 so while you hate on it ill be here to troll everything PS4. PS4 may game better but X1 does everything else much better so unlucky

    • cozomel

      Right cuz fanboys like you dont try and kick the cr@p out of the PS4 all the time. Get off your high horse kid, both fanboys are the same. And the X1 does everything better? right, right, keep telling yourself that. If it makes you sleep better.

    • Psionicinversion

      i said everything else other than gaming cus i think x1 sweet spot is going be and stay at 900p. I kick the cr@p out of PS4’s all the time becuase theres more of you fanboys to troll against. If the X1 was superior and all the xbox fanboys were like omg your PS4 is rubbish id be trolling the X1.

      Also most PS fanboys atm are just glory hunters theyll migrate to whichever one is better for gaming so theyve got no brand loyalty at all, thats also why im doing it.

    • iFdurMOM

      OMG dude STFU already,

    • cozomel

      Who cares about brand loyalty? F*ck that i go with who ever got the better product. I honestly believed the MS system was going to be the more powerful one because MS was in a better position monetarily. But we all know how that turned out. And cheaper? F-that im going with them not MS and their overpriced and inferior bullsh*t. Plus i could care less about MS’s few franchises. And i know you meant “other than gaming” and i disagree. But whatever. You seem to think that Sony fanboys are worst, when really both fanboys are really the same.

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah exactly going with the best system is better but going with the opposite system and sl@gging it off is pathetic cus if they were all on X1 they’d be sl@gging the PS4 off, cus there on PS4 there sl@gging the X1 off…. GLORY HUNTERS

  • DoUbLeZz (Lydon)

    They still have v tons of stuff on PS3 3 to play that’s def why! !! There titanfall is gundam down there. .. wait till a good gundam/s game launches on PS4 just wait! !! I along with them will be ordering them! !! XD

    • Al Simons

      dude gundam is like 10+ years old…give your nostalgia a rest.

  • Falcon D. Stormvoice

    It’s Japan. They like handheld systems and smartphones more than consoles right now.

    Everywhere else, the consoles are selling like hotcakes.
