Easy question... can PS4 beat the PS2 launch sales in Japan?

PS2 hold the crown of the "BEST SELLING GAME MACHINE IN JAPAN"... to understand the unbelievable and historical fact I will share the sales with you guys:

Day 1: 600k
Day 2: 980k (380k in this day)

So can PS4 beat these sales? Kaz already said they are having unprecedented preorders in Japan but we know the preorders hype is a new thing the stores in the world... in 2000 the preorders was not that important to the sales like they are today.

So what do you think?

Around the Network

I'm thinking more along the lines of 500-600k. Would be amazing if they do better than that.

Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Incredibly doubtful.

Japan are all about the handhelds now...

no way can it beat it. 980k in 2 days? no fucking way

yes, why not

Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

No enough shipments !

I predict 450k-500k for week 1, 650k max !


Pocky Lover Boy! 

1M 1st week??? That would be a launch hat trick (us and eu had it as well).

duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

Do you guys really think the handhelds is a issue in Japan for consoles? I think the consoles are not selling great anymore because they are not a hot product there.... so PS4 can revive the Japan console market.

PS2 sold 980k in two days in Japan?

News to me, but no I don't see it given consoles are not as popular there as they were in ps2 gen. Thinking more along the lines of 350k-400k day one/first week. But hypothetically if it did beat ps2 sales then that would be fucking crazy shit. But I doubt it, soooo!
