PS4 vs PS3 in Japan – VGChartz Gap Charts – October 2019

PS4 Vs. PS3 Japan:

Gap change in latest month: 29,497 – PS3

Gap change over last 12 months: 219,806 – PS3

Total Lead: 111,693 – PS4

PlayStation 4 Total Sales: 8,463,535

PlayStation 3 Total Sales: 8,351,842

This one is turning out to be a very interesting slugging match; PS4 may be dominating its predecessor globally, but in Japan PS3 is putting up a good fight, and even gaining ground now that PS4 sales in the land of the rising sun have stagnated. Will be intriguing to see which one ultimately comes out on top.

Japan, the one region the PS4 isn't doing better than the PS3 did. PS3 could end up on top by the end.

What happened this month in 3DS's life to cause this month's bump? (Pretty sure it can't have come from Wii U haha)



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I believe it is the launch of Pokemon X / Y if I am not mistaken.

Ah, yeah, that'll do it haha. Something tells me Switch is gonna start widening the lead again with the next monthly data. ;)

Xbone's basically guaranteed to win this one, as I think PS3 only made it to a little over 26 million total. Still, the fact they're this close shows how much ground Xbox lost this gen, even in its home territory, only beating out last gen's third place by a few million.
