PS4 Becomes Japanese Best-Seller on Amazon

Last Updated: February 21, 2014


Almost immediately after its launch in Japan, the PS4 hit the top of Amazon’s Japanese best-seller list. We’re talking about the console alone, without the camera—the version bundled with the camera didn’t make it nearly as far, and came in around 12th place.

On the other hand, when it comes to multiplatform game sales, more Japanese gamers are buying PS3 copies than PS4 copies.

The PS4 has been quite successful in the months since its launch elsewhere, and its launch event in Japan was met with much excitement. What sorts of sales numbers do you think we’ll be seeing for its first day on the Japanese market? We’ll keep you updated.
