ps4 sales japan

The Japanese charts for the final week of 2018 are in, and they make for... Well, pretty boring reading if you're not a fan of Nintendo. The big N absolutely dominated the software charts with only Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Judgement sticking around in the top ten on PlayStation 4. There were no new releases, either.

At least on the hardware side of things the PS4 managed to hold steady. The standard model actually saw a slight increase in sales over the previous week, while the Pro endured a very minor drop. All told, they're decent numbers for Sony's system to end 2018 on.
