PS4 passes 400k sales in Japan, pips Vita in charts

PlayStation 4 is still the best-selling games console in Japan.

Information supplied to MCV from Famitsu shows that the hardware’s install base now stands at 405,546 units strong three weeks since it launched.

The hardware is so popular that most stores are now starting to run out of stock and the console’s Knack bundle is nearly sold out.

The Vita continues to sell well as Sony pushes the handheld with a TV marketing campaign.

For the week ending March 9th, Vita title Soul Sacrifice debuts at the top of the software charts, selling 45,101 units, followed by last week’s No.1, Harvest Moon: Connect to a New World which shifted 31,407 units, which now sits in second place.
