This is certainly another solid week for the PS4, that keeps selling over the 30,000 units mark. It’ll be certainly interesting to see if its momentum will be retained into the Japanese holiday season.

PlayStation VR also had a solid launch considering supply, and we’ll possibly learn whether it sold out or not when Media Create releases its detailed statistics on Friday.
