Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Refuses to Fall Despite Nintendo Software Dominance

PS4 sales actually increase

The PlayStation 4 is suffering from a real software drought in Japan right now, but Sony's latest console just refuses to budge from the top of the hardware charts.

It's been another incredibly quiet week for PlayStation in Japan as only one new title, Root Letter, released on Sony's latest system - and those sales figures aren't even worth mentioning.

A quick break from all of the juicy E3 2016 news: Ratchet & Clank is currently £19.99 on the European PlayStation Store.

Sony Reduces the Price of Major PS4 Releases on NA PlayStation Store

Greatest hits?

Sony's dropped the price of four major PlayStation 4 first-party releases on the PlayStation Store to $19.99, perhaps indicating that the MSRP of the must own games has changed. The discounts – to Bloodborne, DriveClub, The Last of Us Remastered, and Until Dawn – don't appear to be fuelled by some kind of promotion, so unless...
