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

Japan should be the 3rd of 4th 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.

PS4 reached 1M on Dec, 17th officially in France.

Japan is therefore the 5th country to achieve it. What will be the next one to 1M? Canada? Australia? Spain ? Italy ? ;)

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's a better number then I tought it would be(for PS4). Might have a chance to pick up or atleast hang onto the PS3 with all the gams releasing this year that will interest the Japanese audiance.

It's crazy how well the ps4 is doing globally and average it is in its home country. Maybe its late adoption but if the ps4 can't attract the Japanese market, console gaming has to be considered dead there.

Without any good games PS4 did this well in a country where home console is struggling. With price drop and bloodborne, final fantasy xv, type-0, dragon quest, yakuza zero it will be complete PS4 domination. Loving the current status.



So much for people complaining it wouldn't pass it by 2014 end.
