Japanese Charts, Sep 8 - 14: Smash Bros Rules, PS4 has sales surge


This week's Japanese charts are in and surprisingly the PS4 has seen something of an upsurge, selling 23,623 units compared to just over 7,000 units last week. This is in stark contrast to the Xbox One, which in its second week on sale in Japan has sold 3.015 units.

The 3DS was of course the top seller, but PS4 coming in second is a big surprise, considering many thought that consoles where finished in Japan. Perhaps all they need is a big new release such as Destiny which came in second in the software charts with 91,277 units sold on PS4 and third in the software charts with 49,503.



So what was number one? Super Smash Bros of course, which sold an impressive 944,644 units. That 3DS train keeps on rolling.

I thought Smash Bros sold a million, someone somewhere is telling porkies.

Does this count bundles?

Don't know, probably doesn't count digital though.

Yes, Smash was over a million with digital included. Very interesting week on these charts otherwise though, those Xbox One numbers in particular are embarassing, even for a home console in Japan these days, and the huge jump in sales for PS4 hardware is shocking to be honest... really didn't expect Destiny to do so well in Japan.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
