Even though it launched on February 22nd and was only available for two days within the sales week (which runs from Monday to Sunday) – Sony’s PlayStation 4 managed to sell 322,083 units in Japan. This is according to Famitsu though, so we’ll need to wait before the official Media Create sales charts come through.
Nonetheless, it’s still a solid indicator of the console’s success in the country. We’ll also find out about the fate of launch titles like Yakuza Ishin, which also launched for the PlayStation 3. The console has managed to sell 5.3 million units worldwide as of February and there’s every chance that it could cross one million units sold within the first week in Japan.
As of now, there aren’t many big exclusives coming up aside from inFamous: Second Son, though various third party titles like Thief, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes and many more have either released or are coming soon.
