I'm aware of that but it doesn't change the numbers. Sure since they weren't focusing on launching everywhere else at the time it was easier to allocate more stock to Japan, but its not like they couldn't have shipped 300k to Japan this time if they made that a priority. They just decided to focus their initial shipments elsewhere (probably mainly the US).
That's for my "yes" part.
My "no" part is that is not a huge step down from the PS4", it's a global launch all around the world and the console was sold out within 2 hours worldwide, they sold everything they could potentially produce and sell. So yeah, Japan should've have more units perhaps, but that doesn't say much about the actual trends.
