Yay Consumer Electronics: PS4 sells 322,083 in Japan


A good start

In case you didn't know, the PS4 has just launched in Glorious Nippon, three months after its North American and European debuts, and the numbers are in for the new platform's first two days of Japanese sales: The console has sold 322,083 units in two days, almost four times the number of PS3s sold in that console's first two days (88,443). Of course, the PS3 was in much shorter supply back then, and recently the PS Vita, considered a weak seller these days, moved more units than the PS4 did in its first weekend (around 325,000).

Still, those have to be some happy numbers for Sony at the moment, since they feed into a much rosier overall picture for the PS4's global launch figures, which they just announced topped six million. Between this and the Xbox One's own numbers, this generation's seen the biggest launch period in console history so far. 

You planning to pick up a PS4 anytime soon? I've not yet taken the plunge, but a few interesting exclusives on the horizon are coming ever closer.
