Japan : 8,3 million
For comparison with PS3 numbers lifetime sales :
Japan : 10.47 million
At first glance, I was surprised Germany came out ahead of the UK. Then I remembered that the XBox is extremely popular in the UK. The UK is the biggest video game market in Europe, but it is still impressive that PS4 has made such huge gains in Germany compared to the PS3. Anyway here are the numbers that VGChartz has so far for generations 7 and 8.
Generation 7 hardware totals (in millions)
Generation 8 hardware totals, Dec. 31, 2018 (in millions)

The UK is still the biggest home console market in Europe, but it doesn't have quite the lead that it used to. In Generation 7, UK hardware totals were almost twice what Germany's were, and also Germany sold few consoles than either the UK or France for all 3 systems. Now in Generation 8, Germany is a bigger market than France! As said before PS4 is selling the stronger in Germany than any other European nation. Sony has made some serious gains in Germany this generation.
