Despite the release of two relatively big PlayStation 4 titles, Sony's console refused to budge from its current position in the Japanese hardware charts. The PS4 is still stuck around that 25,000 units mark when taking both the standard model and PS4 Pro into account.

It's pretty much business as usual, then, but it's a bit disappointing to see Valkyria Chronicles 4 and Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom struggle to break any new ground. The former entered in second shifting 62,000 copies, while the latter only managed 56,000 copies in third. Relatively solid openings in this day and age, but we perhaps expected a bit more from these two anticipated games.
