A bit late again but here we go with this week’s Gaming Life in Japan! And it’s bound to be a great one with a hardware launch in the PS4 this week. Let’s see how it fared on the charts this week.
Looking at software, the PS4 is already making a dent with Knack being a launch title taking the first position. No doubt helped along by Knack being a hardware bundle. Over 300k units were sold in it’s first week. Second is the latest release in the Yakuza series, Yakuza: Ishin for the PS3. In third spot is the same game for the PS4. While the 3DS shows up in 4th spot with Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru and Luca’s Wonderful Mysterious Keys. Another PS4 launch title, Killzone: Shadow Fall, has helped itself to the 7th place. Battlefield 4 is sitting in 8th position with 24,799 units sold. Spots 9 and 10 are taken out by two more 3DS titles, Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Puzzle & Dragons Z respectively.
Seems like the Playstation 4 is shaking things up on the software, what about we take a look at how the hardware chart turned out this week?
After what seems like an eternity, the mighty 3DS was toppled from the top spot replaced by the, you guessed it, Playstation 4, which posted sales of 309,154 units. This absolutely eclipses the 22,253 units the past week for the 3DS but it’s a hardware launch and they usually report big number. The PS Vita also reported healthy sales with 16,857 units shifted which is slightly down from last week. Despite the Wii U having a killer title released recently in the form of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, the Wii U is still seeing lagging sales with 8,407 units sold which is lower than last week.
Will the PS4 still be at number one or with the 3DS reclaim it’s crown? We can’t wait to see later this week when the new numbers come in fresh from Japan!

Some early sales figures have come in from Japan regarding the release of the next gen console, the Playstation 4. In the first 48 hours, the console saw it find its way to 322,083 gamers which is a great sign for Sony.
This beats the sales for the same period for the PS3 which saw 88,443 consoles sold but but the PS2 outshines them both. 650,552 units of PS2 were sold back when it was released.
It’s a fair statement to say that most of the anime storylines occur in Tokyo however one major series took place in the Kanagawa Prefecture.
That series was Neon Genesis Evangelion. And the area that looks suspiciously like Tokyo-3 is Hakone. So commencing on March 25, citizens that have a registered vehicle will be able to attach an Evangelion themed licence plate to their car, scooter, motor bike or any other road vehicle. As you can see from the pics below, they look pretty cool and very much an otaku must have. The plates come in four different colours with well known landmarks such as Mt. Fuji, Hakone Shrine and Lake Ashinoko.
There are only 390 plates to pick up but given that there are only 769 registered drivers, availability shouldn’t be a huge issue.

Here’s a few pics of the lead up to the launch with people lining up outside the Sony Building in Ginza the day before the launch. 100 tickets were given out on a first come basis to buy a launch PS4 with the first 30 given entry to the exclusive media launch event.
Capcom have joined in the Sony celebrations following the Japan launch of the PS4 just over 24 hours ago. Deep Down, the forthcoming free to play PS4 title from Capcom, has seen a new trailer released for it to coincide with the launch.
It’s a only a short one at one minute long but this game is shaping up nicely and looked fantastic at last year’s Tokyo Game Show.
Fans of Sword Art Online will love this next figure. Good Smile Company and Max Factory have put out a figure based on Asuna in her captured birdcage stage from the second story arc in SAO.
Titania, as she was called by the manic Fairy King Oberon, is a stunning 1/7th scale statue with amazing detail.
