You’d think with DQXI out that the PS4 would be even further ahead of PS3 in the same timeframe

Its a small country. Both the PS3 and PS4 pumped out quality games to the very end of the generation (im assuming PS4 will continue its trend) and even beyond it, so its not suprising.

Japan being a small country didn’t stop PS1 and PS2 from selling over 20 million over there.

Just goes to show that the best a stationary console can hope to sell in today’s Japanese marketplace is 10.5-12 million.

Although PS4 is ahead of PS3, Vita is drastically behind PSP.

This may be the first gen where PlayStation hardware in total hasn’t sold over to 20 million.(21.59M 5th gen, 25.42M 6th gen, 30.48M 7th gen, and 13.78M so far 8th gen)
