PS4 off to a strong start in Sony's home nation

The Sony PlayStation 4 has been available in the U.S. and other countries for several months and has sold over 5.3 million units combined. The PS4’s January sales alone were nearly twice that of Microsoft’s Xbox One, and didn’t even include figures from Sony’s home market: Japan.
 
The PS4 just recently launched in Japan on February 22 and during its first weekend of availability, Sony sold 322,083 PS4 consoles. By comparison, when the PS3 launched in Japan it sold only 88,443 units on its opening weekend.

 
The PS4 sells for 39,980 yen in Japan working out to about $390 in the U.S. The system can also be purchased in a bundle with the PS Camera for 43,980 yen (roughly $430).
 
A special PS4 with Metal Gear Solid themes will launch on March 20.
