Today Famitsu jump-started its weekly sales data by announcing how many PS4 Pro units, according to its own sources, have been sold in Japan betweeen the launch on November 10th and the end of the first week on the shelves on November 13th.

According to the magazine, the console sold 65,194 units, while the standard PS4 sold 28,318 units, for a total estimate of 93,512 consoles sold among the whole PS4 family.

The magazine also mentioned that with the upcoming release of software that supports the console, like Final Fantasy XV, The Last Guardian and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, a further growth in sales can be expected in the coming months.

For the Japanese market, this is certainly a sizable spike in sales, and is similar to the one provided by the new and slimmed-down CUH-2000 PS4 model, that pushed PS4 sales to 96,433 units (According to Media Create) in its debut week, but with the help of a substantial price cut and the launch of Persona 5.

It’ll be interesting to see if there will be any substantial difference with the figures that Media Create will release later today.

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.
