interesting sales figures. i love japan & japan publisher love the PS4. What do you think guys, end of this year in japan, the PS4 more than 5, 3 million ? Yakuza Zero and Persona 5 have the best story of the year 2017 for now. hope the best for japan and the sales figures in future. The next big japan-games in this country are: Tekken 7 in june, Dragon Quest XI and Gundam & the final fantasy-remaster + naruto ultimate ninja storm-collection in july. After that Everybodys Golf. Dynasty Warriors 9 ect. Maybe end of the year Ni No Kuni 2 ? Gran Turismo Sport is sure. I think, japanese player buy many west-games this summer/end of the year too (Red Dead Redemption 2, Uncharted The Lost Legacy, Star Wars Battlefront II ect). i hope, 5,3 million units are possible in japan this year for the PS4. Any new sales figures in china or south korea?

Eh you want 5.3m by the end of the year? That really shouldn't be difficult... that's only 0.7m, and they sold 1.74m in the last 12 months.
