PlayStation has enjoyed a pretty great week in Japan as we enter the holiday period. Two new PlayStation 4 titles took the top spots of the software charts, with Yakuza: Kiwami 2 and Earth Defense Force 5 both breaking 100,000 copies.

Equally positive are the hardware charts, where Sony's current-gen system saw a large jump in sales across both the standard PS4 model and the PS4 Pro. Combined, the platform shifted 86,000 units, with the more expensive Pro chalking up an impressive 45,000 of that total. 

How did it manage that? Well, last week saw the release of the limited edition Monster Hunter: World PS4 Pro, and we all know how much the Japanese love Monster Hunter.
