PS4 at Top of Japanese Hardware Chart by a Huge Margin

Last Updated: February 26, 2014


Media Create is a Japanese research and publishing firm that keeps track of console sales in Japan. Its estimates are highly reliable and are generally thought to give a good idea of how things stand in the gaming market. They just release the chart for last week’s sales, which includes data from the PS4. It’s on the top of the list, and the margin between it and the second console is huge.

  1. PS4 – 309,154
  2. 3DS LL – 22,253
  3. Vita – 16,857
  4. PS3 – 9,983
  5. 3DS – 9,898
  6. Wii U – 8,407
  7. PSP – 3,171
  8. Vita TV – 1,383
  9. Xbox 360 – 241

Remember, while these are last week’s sales, the PS4 only had two days of that week, while all the others had the full time span. In light of these numbers, as well as the other sales reports we’ve heard, it’s safe to say the PS4’s Japanese launch was a success. Now we just need to wait and see how it holds up in the weeks and months to come.
