PS4 Sales Pass 1.1 Million in Japan Just Before the Big Games Start Dropping

on February 22, 2015 4:42 PM

The latest Media Create charts combined with historical data reveal that Sony’s PS4 has finally passed the 1.1 million mark in its Japanese home turf, reaching a grand total of 1,118,805 units sold through to customers, thanks to a solid week in which Sony moved 21,381 consoles.

Interestingly, we’re just at the beginning of a period in which several exclusives (or brand exclusives with PS3 or PS Vita, which are still going to bolster sales) are going to hit the Japanese shelves, starting with God Eater 2: Rage Burst, The Order: 1886 and Dragon Quest Heroes, and continuing with more like Yakuza Zero and Bloodborne. Other non-esclusive titles like Final Fantasy Type-0 HD should also give the console a further push.

It’ll be interesting to how those releases will controbute to solidify the position of the console on the Japanese market, but for now you can see a chart showing the sales trend over time and a table with weekly sales since launch just below.

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.
