1.4 million isn't bad for a country where console gaming is pretty much dead.

For sustainable Home Console HD JRPG development, 2,000,000 install base probably needed. 600,000 to go.

SONY, more JRPGs please. Thanks.

lot of jRPGs are coming the momentum isnt going anywhere ...in comparison to PS3 which had a bumpy start but succeeded at the end in its homeland and still has good sales..PS4 can be considered exploding success

I agree, the more JRPG's released on the PS4 in Japan, the longer they can sustain momentum. I believe if FFXV releases any time in the near future the PS4 will receive a rather sizable boost in console sales. The same thing will happen when MG Phantom Pain releases.

FF15 and KH3 release dates depend on PS4 install base in Japan.

Certain franchises succeed regardless of install base. FF and KH are among the biggest names in Japan.

That's pretty good for a home console over there.

Of course it will slow down that is until the next big release persona 5 perhaps?

That's not what the chart is showing what's being displayed is that title launches cause large sales spikes which is expected. The other piece of info is that between spikes the baseline sales have actually increased.

Just watch as more Japanese centric titles launch the baseline will increase between...its title libraries that increase baseline sales...mmore titles for a region the more incentive for non fans to justify a purchase.

With all the new jrpgs announced momentum is going to go back up soon enough.
