Japanese Charts, Feb 17 - Feb 23: PS4 launch week


This week's Japanese Charts make for very interesting reading.

For the first time in a long time, 3DS is not actually top for sales, that honour goes PS4 which according to Media Create sold 309,154 units in its first two days on sale. That's short of Famitsu's estimate of over 325,000, but still very impressive.



Perhaps even more impressive is that Knack sold 309,304 units, although other PS4 software seemed to perform slightly worse. It's worth noting that  a) Knack was packed in PS4 units and b) Media Create does not count digital sales.

Elsewhere this week, 3DS still managed to sell over 31,000 units, while Vita sales remain fairly strong at over 18,000 units.

Next's week's charts should be more interesting in terms of PS4 as it will give us a better idea of how its been received over the opening week.

Finally a note on the Wii U. It has now overtaken the total sales of Xbox 360 in Japan. So that's something.

You can check out the full chart below.

Just cos you don't like it doesn't mean other people won't

Not bad for having only a couple of Japanese orientated games. And Yakuza is on PS3 aswell. Deep down, KH3 and many other games unheard of in the west will change that.
