Sony’s latest console outpaces predecessor during it’s opening weekend at home.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 has seen sales his 322,083 units in its opening weekend in Japan, narrowly beating out similar figures posted during the launch of rival Nintendo’s Wii U of 308,570.
The figures, reported by Famitsu (translated by Siliconera), show that the new home console improved upon the opening weekend sales of the PS3 at 88,443 but fell somewhat short of the console maker’s heyday of the PS2 at 630,552.
This was well ahead of the company’s target for 5 million sales in March and will only be further bolstered by the robust sales in Japan.
Microsoft revealed that it was lowering the price of its console and offering a bundle deal with the much anticipated title Titanfall in an effort to woo back consumers.
