PS4 Pro Launch Pushes Total PS4 Sales in Japan Over 3.5 Million; 93,512 Last Week via Media Create

Like every Wednesday, today Media Create released its weekly estimates for console sales in Japan, and more specifically, they revealed the units moved by the PS4 family in the country in the debut week of the PS4 Pro.

According to the independent firm, which is normally used by local manufacturers like Sony and Nintendo to report on their sales, the PS4 Pro and the standard PS4 sold 92,344 units combined during the last week, which included four days on the shelves for the Pro (from Thursday, November 10th to Sunday November 13rd).

This figure is slightly different from the one provided by Famitsu’s sources, that indicated a total of 93,512 PS4 consoles sold in the country last week, of which 65,194 were PS4 Pro.

The discrepancy isn’t new for the reporting of Japanese sales, and is due to the fact that Famitsu and Media Create use a different pool of retailer sources to build their estimates.

For the sake if comparison, the new slimmed-down CUH-2000 PS4 pushed sales up to 96,433 units in its debut week, but with the help of a substantial price cut and the launch of Persona 5.

The new figures, added to Media Create historical data, push PS4 sales past 3,500,000 in the country, and more precisely to 3,546,548 since its local launch on February 22nd, 2015.
