PS4 Approaches 6 Million Sold


The PlayStation 4 launched in Japan over the weekend, and it has been reported that it sold 322,083 units in the first couple of days, and thus moving total PS4 sales towards the 6 million mark.

According to the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, PlayStation 4 recorded a better opening weekend than the Nintendo Wii U, which only managed to sell 308,570 units at launch. However, the PlayStation 4 sold less than both the Nintendo Wii (371,936 sold) and the PS2 (630,552) at their respective launches.

About two weeks ago, it was reported that the PlayStation 4 has sold 5.2 million units worldwide, and with the additional sales from the Japanese launch it’s approaching 6 million units sold.
