To what degree though? 

The situation is exponentially worse though and has been given as the explanation for why PS Hardware is so disproportionately high compared to software, and why initially the PS5 was able to outpace the PS4 in 2021 despite seemingly less favourable market in Japan compared to 7 years ago. 

Well we don't know but now it is mostly used as an excuse for why the sw is doing bad but is the PS4 software also doing bad  because foreigners are buying all the ps4's?

No one is buying PS4's check its weekly sales. PS4 software is kind of doing what you would expect for a system which is discontinued in Japan for over a year. PS5 however has had weeks where 50k units of hardware is sold and no software in the top 30 selling over 1k. So that does in fact need explaining.
