Ps4 surprise of the week hitting 117k. Only 6th time it beat 100k and also outsold xbox LTD in one week. Highest ever weeks sales outside a major game launch or ps4 launch. Here's to it hitting 8m and 9m in 2019 which almost all of you doubted.

9 mil in 2019 is impossible for PS4 man. The switch will hit it though so take solace in that

I wonder when people will stop doubting the ps4. They never learn.

I thought (I have to find my post from early 2013) that the PS4 would be down 20% from PS3 levels (10.5 to ~8) looks like ill be wrong on that.  Happy because after the PS4's first year in Japan, things did look bleak. 

Good prediction. I always said 8m minimum but hopeful it will beat 10m and ps3 in the end. I'm more so confident now then hopeful.

PS4 sales in Japan, are like PS3's. Like a turtle, slow and boring but steady and consistent, and at the end of the day it will surpass 10M in Japan. I expect selling more than PS3 too, not by much though.

I'm expecting Wii levels, around 12-13 millions. That's good for a traditional home console.

Finally a positive prediction! I feel sony needs to drop the price big time if they are to do that.

Why not? It needs to sell 1,381,566 in 2019.

It did 1.7-1.8 million in 2016, 2017 & 2018.

Judging by how dramatically sales of 3ds, Vita, etc fell in the region, I don't think it will reach it. We shall see though. But this year required Monhun and dramatic sales and piece drops to get the PS4 there. The PS4 is running out of ammo in Japan.

They gave it a $50 price cut with 2 digital games for the last 4 weeks. The price all year long was very high. If they give it a $50 permanent cut in say march or April it will help it sustain a better baseline. I feel they could do $100 off but they won't because they are keeping the price high WW.
