The latest Media Create charts combined with historical data reveal that the PS4 has passed another milestone in Japan, achieving total sales of over 1.4 million. To be more precise, 1,409,143 of Sony’s console found their way to a loving Japanese home.

While the milestone is encouraging, the console’s momentum after a perfect storm of big releases has been gradually slowing down over the past few weeks in the archipelago of the rising sun.

It’ll be interesting to see where weekly sales will settle before the coming of new big hitters, but for the moment you can see the trend since the console’s release in the graph below.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
