About 62,908 units of PlayStation 5 were sold in Japan, beating the Nintendo Switch, which sold 51,108 units this week. Microsoft’s Xbox Series S|X sold 1,625 units, and the nearly decade-old PlayStation 4 sold 1,061 units last week in Japan.

2022 had been a great year for Sony and, specifically, PlayStation 5. Sony sold 14.8 million PlayStation 5 units in 2022, according to the PlayStation FY22 report. A whopping 7.1 million PlayStation units were sold in Q3 of last year. If we talk about overall sales, over 32 million PS5 units have been sold since its launch.

Given that the Japanese market is one of the most fiercely competitive in the world for video games, this is a remarkable achievement. Since the Nintendo Switch has long been the best-selling console in Japan, the PS5’s ability to overtake it should please Sony.

Since its launch, the PS5 has been the go-to console for millions of gamers worldwide. The PS5 is the best option for gamers seeking an immersive gaming experience thanks to its brilliant specs. Sony’s console also boasts a large selection of titles such as The Last Of Us, Spider-Man, and God of War.
