PS4 Holiday 2018 Japan Sales

Thanks to a range of promotions at various Japanese retailers, the PlayStation 4 had its best week in a long, long time. Sony's console shifted an impressive 75,000 units across the standard model and the PS4 Pro -- that's a rather dramatic increase of roughly 55,000 units week-on-week. It'll be interesting to see whether these numbers can hold any kind of ground as we move deeper into the holiday season.

Even with the PS4's success, though, nothing's knocking Nintendo off the top of this year's Christmas tree. The Switch commands the hardware charts thanks to the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which unsurprisingly dominated the software side of things. The only new PS4 game to enter the top 10 was Just Cause 4, moving a paltry 16,100 copies.
