Project Beast may prove pivotal to the PlayStation 4 in its home region, as nothing is stopping the system’s slide at the minute. Despite exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son deploying in the East last week, the game did little to supercharge the system’s sales, as it accrued a lowly 7,543 units according to the latest data compiled by Media Create. This put the recently released platform behind the Nintendo Wii U for the first time, with the House of Mario’s machine managing a slightly more tolerable 9,024 units.

Honestly, we doubt that either manufacturer will be pleased with these numbers, as the Land of the Rising Sun slowly starts to shrug aside home consoles. Sony’s portable format the PlayStation Vita performed a little better with 14,070 units, though it still couldn’t overcome the Nintendo 3DS family. Software sales did at least fare favourably for the PlayStation marker, with PES 2014: Pro Evolution Soccer topping the charts on the PlayStation 3, a little ahead of Sucker Punch’s abovementioned superhero game.

As always, we’ve included the full software and hardware charts in the space below. What do you think that the Japanese giant can do to resurrect its ailing hardware on its home turf? Solve the sales problem in the comments section below.
