PS4 Version of Yakuza Kiwami Beating PS3 Version “Overwhelmingly,” Japanese Store Managers Report

Yakuza Kiwami has been out for a couple of days in Japan, and local store managers are reporting that the PS4 version is selling a lot more than the PS3 one, as a further sign that the adoption of Sony’s newer console is becoming more and more solid in the archipelago of the rising sun.

Of course, Japanese gamers have been quickly upgrading to PS4s since the price drop and the PS4 version has a Yakuza 6 demo. This is a very big year for the PS4 in every region

So many great games coming it in '16 for PS4.

I understand why they'll release Yakuza Kiwami cross-gen, but obviously a bit of a shame they do, cause it won't take full advantage of the PS4's power...

I really hope Kiwami comes to the west, but in the meantime I guess I'll have to wait for Yakuza 0 (please guys, buy it when it hits the store, please please please!)

Indeed. Really wanted Yakuza 5 to be on the ps4 too but oh well. :/

That's pretty surprising considering the number of PS3's in Japan. A good portent for PS4 and consoles in general for Japan. Doubly good if that eventually means more Japanese support.

Well, PS3 already had Yakuza HD, so this is something of a double dip for PS3 owners.

PS3 turns 10 years old in Japan this December. It doesn't matter if it's sold 100 million units there. Eventually people are going to get tired of playing games on it (especially annual series like Yakuza) and move on.

Great for Japan, but what about Yakuza Kiwami in the West? /

Ask that man Gio Corsi.

He seems pretty dedicated in making it happen for Yakuza in the west.
