PS4 sells over 320k units in Japan on opening weekend

Sony finally launched the PS4 game console in Japan this month. The console launched in the US and other countries back in November. The delay in rolling the console out to Japan was to allow Sony to get custom software for the Japanese market.

That software finished and the console launched on February 22. Sony sold a lot of units on opening weekend with reports indicating that 322,083 units were sold reports CVG. That is considerably more units that Sony sold of the PS3 when it launched. The first weekend of ps3 sales saw 88,443 units sold.

The PS4 also beat the Wii U for opening weekend sales. The Wii U racked up 308,570 units sold on the first weekend. The PS4 was unable to match the opening weekend numbers for the Wii at 371,936 and the PS2 at over 630k.

Sony had previously sold over 5.3 million units globally. With Japan now online with the PS4 sales, those numbers will grow. The PS4 sells for 39,980 yen in Japan, plus tax for the basic console. A version of the console with the PS One camera will sell for 43,980 yen.

Sony will launch a special edition of the PS4 console on March 20. The special version will be Metal Gear solid themed and will launch the same day the MGS V: Ground Zeroes game launches. It’s unclear how much the special version of the console will cost. The Japanese prices are roughly on par with the prices we pay in the US for the PS4.
