And you're from Japan...Not for Japan,not even for Europe!Just For USA!:p 

Media Create Sales: Week (1), 2015 (Dec 29 - Jan 04) 

Huh, I guess it's different here.

It's 2014 for VGC though. But VGC may not quite have it at 1m by Jan 4.

Yes and yes,vgc gets the average from famitsu and media create,so it won't be 1m here,as it  961k on Famitsu!I would like Japanese and european trackers to consider that week part of 2014,like npd does!

Well it is another 7-8 weeks before the year is finished. 22th February the PS4 released.

March April we can expect some crazy numbers for PS4.



 

If only Sony focused a bit more on Japan; more Jrpg, Anime, Morpheus plus sexy games :D

The PS4 is not too far behind the PS3 despite not having games that appeal to the Japanese audience, which is kinda impressive. With a much more appealing lineup this year, the PS4 should definitely do better than last year.



Doubt it will reach even 1.5 million by the end of 2015.

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.

Looks like it will reach 2 million first... PS3 had better weekly numbers after launch but slow down in the second year... PS4 looks like to trend the opposite with the second year being better than first (in terms of software at least).
