PS2 launched in Japan first, and had Japan oriented games. PS4 has almost nothing for the Japanese

Not bad. Nothing oriented for them apart of Yakuza, which is on PS3 too.

I was kindof expecting more out of JP but good numbers and this still pushes the PS4 into the number 1 selling 8th gen home console spot. Well deserved for such a great machine. Can't wait to enjoy fantastic hits like Infamous, The Order, and Uncharted.

There more japanese oriented games apart of Yakuza, obviously. And that's why I'll buy the PS4 for. Hoping that Sony will give some love to those games. In Japan the mobile and the handheld market is the thing nowadays ~

For me nex week (24 FEB-2 MAR) PS4 will sold 100.000. 322.000 + 100.000= 422.000 in 2 week. Not bad for me.

Amazing sales, congrats Sony! 8th gen already... that makes me think, Nintendo is on the market since the 3rd gen, Sony since the 5th, it makes me kinda sad. I mean, Nintendo is the history of gaming, and they are still alive, makes me want to buy a WiiU just to support this living legend.

Save your money! Nintendo surely doesn't need it as much as you do. And no, that is not an insult.

Do they really deserve the support by repeating the same mistakes over and over again? Let them suffer through mistakes like Sony did with PS3, then maybe they'll pull their own PS4 in terms of giving players what they fucking want.
