PS4 hits 1m units sold in Japan in its first year

Forums - Sales Discussion - PS4 hits 1m units sold in Japan in its first year

It just hit 1.012.883 units, as of Jan 4, according to Media Create.

Japan should be the 4th or 5th country were PS4 achieves this. Behind US, UK, Germany and maybe France.

Not the best start ever, but still a nice contribution to WW sales.

For comparison, PS3 sold 1.2m in the same number of weeks.

In less than a year, yay :)



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Congrats.



how does this compare with previous consoles and gens?



I'm not really here!

Well, that's decent.
But I hope sales get much better this year.

Think PS3 reached the 1 million after 7-8 months. Launched in November 2006 and got to the milestone in July 2007.

200k below PS3 launch aligned.



That isn't as bad as everyone predicted. :)



It will mostly Likely to sell more than Wii U's first year.
I think PS4 still has 7-8 weeks.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

With the release of Bloodborne, MGSV, Type-0 and Dragon Quest Heroes, I think it actually has a chance of catching up to PS3. Fingers crossed. If FFXV releases this year then all the better.

PS3 sold 1,180,000 units in the next full year at this point in time. PS4 would need to sell 1.4m to catch up.

Actually, I find this interesting so I'm going to open a new thread about this.
