Two Japanese sales charts articles in one week? Are they trying to do us in? The numbers for the first week of 2018 are here, and despite Nintendo absolutely dominating the software charts, the PlayStation 4 managed to rack up some decent figures.

The standard model enjoyed a reasonable sales boost, jumping from 37,000 units to 75,000 units. The Pro, meanwhile, hopped from 12,000 units to 16,000 units. In total, that's close to 100,000 units in week, which isn't too shabby for a console that's over four years old.

Now, we wait for Monster Hunter: World.
