on June 3, 2015 11:55 AM

Sales of the PS4 in Japan had a rather sizable spike around march due to a slew of big games released back to back, but a new period of relative drought slowed that momentum down.

This did not prevent Sony’s console from achieving a new sales milestone, and thanks to today’s Media Create chart combined with historical data, we learn that the console has sold just over one and a half million units in the archipelago of the rising sun. To be more precise, 1,500,886 PS4 units have found a loving Japanese home since launch in February last year.

Below you can the weekly figures of the PS4 in Japan since launch, alongside a graph showing the sales trends up to May 31st.

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.
