Japanese Sales Charts: PlayStation Stays Quiet Over Golden Week

Golden Week was a quiet affair for Sony and PlayStation. Japanese holiday deals didn’t seem to have any real impact, with the PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro simply holding steady at around 35,000 units combined. In previous years we’ve seen some boosted hardware sales during Golden Week, but not this time.

The software charts are similarly lacklustre. The prior week’s number one, PS4 and Vita baseball title Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 2018, was knocked off the top spot by Nintendo’s famous ape. God of War, meanwhile, remains in the top ten, but sales are beginning to fall off. Kratos’ latest adventure shifted a further 16,500 copies — give it a couple of weeks, and it should break through the 100,000 mark at retail.
