Wii U Outsells PS4 Despite inFamous: Second Son Release In Japan According To Latest Sales Figure

By -

Famitsu has shared the sales figure for last week in Japan and according to these figures, Nintendo Wii U has managed to outsell the PS4, for the first time after its launch, in Japan. Sadly the victory isn’t really much in term of amount of units sold, still, it is something to consider since Wii U is getting a major blockbuster title soon compared to the PS4, which is lacking software in Japan for now.

The full Top 10 chart can be seen below.

1. Nintendo 3DS LL – 20,304
2. PS Vita –13,334
3. Wii U – 8,858
4. PS4 – 7,387
5. PS3 – 7,383
6. Nintendo 3DS – 4,711
7. PSP – 1,201
8. PS Vita TV – 762
9. Xbox 360 – 104

If we compare it to previous week sales, the PS4 seems to have reached a point where any increase is negligible, hopefully it can receive a sales boost in the coming month after E3 announcements, and once more software is released for it.

The alarming situation is that this happened despite the release of inFamous: Second Son in Japan. The game sold a total of 39,757 units in its debut week, but still failed to move any substantial amount of PS4. It has been a success worldwide though, and was the fastest selling release in the series, with about 1+ million digital + retail copies sold in just 9 days.

What do you think about the hardware sales in Japan? Let us know in the comments below.

    Let me see, the WiiU megaton mariokart8 is out this week.
    Japanse love MarioKart. Ask A Japanese if he knows Infamous, del tell you Infa….waaaaaaaaaat?
    So is this alarming for the PS4?

    HECK NO. Flamebait article? I call that a big YES.

    So Xbones Nice try but no, bat trolling.

  • DLConspiracy//

    Oh no… What are PS4 fans gonna do now… this will tarnish their entire world.

    • GodGamerDerp

      Apparently PS4′s stronger hardware, ~3.5 million sales lead, large number of 1st party developers, more games, and more developer support have microsoft fanboys extremely upset.

      Stay asshurt at PS4′s success. Keep shilling and spinning while everyone else ignores you and buys more PS4s.

      It’s good to know you’re completely wrong and raging against facts and reality, and nothing you say will happen. I’m constantly right, you’re constantly wrong.

      PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen. PS4 will have more dev support and more 1st party games the entire gen. Sony still has a large number of 1st party studios and they’re all working on PS4 games. PS4 will make a net profit, Sony won’t go bankrupt. I’m constantly right, as usual.

      PS4 has the superior visuals on all console AAA multiplats, more dev support including indies, a large number of first party studios, free to play games and MMOs like FFXIV and Warframe, and unannounced 1st party games (Gran Turismo, God of War, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, etc.) Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4.

      PS4 games not on Xbox One: Killzone, inFamous Second Son, Dynasty Warriors 8, Final Fantasy XIV, Warframe, DC Universe, Yakuza Isshin and other Japanese games, MLB 14 The Show, Bound by Flame, Injustice Gods Among Us, Knack, Natural Doctrine, Transistor, Uncharted, Planetside 2, Dragon Ball Z, MotoGP, Deep Down, Driveclub, The Last of Us, The Witness, The Order, and a ton of indies including Resogun, Rime, Transistor, etc.

      Recently Sony has filed trademarks or had leaks for no less than 6 games. Entwined, Kill Strain, Blood Borne, Dark Chronicles, Project Beast and Guns Up.

      Don’t worry PS4 will keep selling like hotcakes based on superior multiplats alone, and bundles with Destiny and Watch Dogs.,

    Wait for the shock in the next few weeks. My prediction is that the Wii U will become the best selling console worldwide for a couple of weeks. Of course it won’t last and I don’t think 1 title is enough to save the system, but I do think there will be a huge, short term, boost in sales of the console once Mario kart has been released.

    • uPadWatcher

      Never underestimate Nintendo. Mario Kart 8 is on the verge of becoming a system seller for the Wii U, but the rest is still to come. Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, Watch_Dogs (the no glitch version), Project CARS, FAST Racing Neo, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (developed by Treyarch), Monolith Soft’s X, etc will be announced later this year.

  • You are flat out wrong

    Unsurprising. Consoles are dead in Japan.

    Unfortunately for Jonathan Rosa, the “Xbox Mafia” and the rest of the scum, the Xbone will perform even worse.

  • TraceSkipper

    Does the Japan market matter much?

  • Joe Vicious

    I don’t know why people are blaming the economy, seems the wiiu did justfine.

    Ps4 didn’t sell because it has no games and Japanese don’t buy things based on hype and empty promises

    • You are flat out wrong

      The Wii U is barely doing any better week to week, Xpleb.

      Can’t wait to see the Xbone’s launch, Joejoe, it’ll be even more dead.

      • Failz

        WiiU has killer games, and most of Nintendo games get reviews in the 9s unlike Sony games near the 7s and low 8s.

        • You are flat out wrong

    Im talking in general no one cares about Japan in terms of sales anymore just ask Sony

  • Sea-HAWK fan

    Cuz nintendo has all you anime creeps playing so nobody wants to join you.. Good work keep it up.

  • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

    Get back to me when wiiu out sells PS4 globally.

  • starscream1180

    those sales numbers arent much to boast about …. but i did pre-order my own wii u mario kart bundle…lol

  • Midori Inaba

    And the Vita beats Wii U? Big deal?
    How is this any really relevant?

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      PS4′s in the position where it might not outsell the wii u for the duration of its lifecycle in japan

      • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

        Not true as more games start coming for PS4 especially games Japanese players want to play then PS4 sales will increase there, the PS4 hasn’t been on the market for as long as wiiu has either.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          Point the japanese games on this list out for me.

          The PS4 is likely going to sell worse than the PS3 did in its first year on the market. You can also bet your bottom dollar the PS4 is going to sell less than the PS3 is this year. Unheard of for an 8 year old console to be outselling the new one.

      • Midori Inaba

        Not trying to be a butt or anything, but that’s just some wishful thinking right there.
        So, according to these numbers, the Vita will outsell EVERYTHING except the 3DS.
        Not really.
        These numbers mean nothing at all…

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          You are being butthurt.

          This is the reason why.

          Week 14 Sales Comparisons ( Console sales after being on sale for 4 months and half)

          WII – 1,752,238

          NDS – 1,700,752

          3DS – 1,033,333

          PSP – 952,181

          WiU – 820,545

          PS3 – 657,872′

          PSV – 608,784

          PS4 – 576,787

          360 – 120,491

          The Vita has about 2.9 million units sold in Japan. Its on its 3rd year now. The Wii U’s got another million to go before its caught up with it.

          • Midori Inaba

            Butthurt?… What’s your problem? why all of you guys act so defensive…
            All I’m saying is that Japanese numbers hardly represent the reality of the global market.
            And expect the Wii U to outsell the PS4, is cute and all… but not realistic.
            If you knew me, you’d know I don’t take sides with any particular company. I’m just realistic overall.
            So don’t act so defensive only when presented with the truth.
            It’s like in the US. X360 passed the Wii’s lifetime sells a couple months ago, but that hardly means anything -shrug-
            You should chill >:T

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            I presented you with the truth :P

            Console performance worldwide is important and Japan has show important trends overall with worldwide markets. Software performance per titles is the major difference, but overall market direction is very much mirrored worldwide as it is to japan.

            Hell Mobile gaming grew in Japan the fastest.

            Its quite possible that the PS4 only manages PS3 numbers overall life time.

  • Melissa Rossetti

    Nice article , sadly the PS4 outsells wii u nearly 5:1

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      No it doesnt.

  • brianc6234

    Infamous isn’t a big game in Japan. Stupid to even mention it. Nothing is selling in Japan anymore. That’s why everyone cares more about US sales.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Japan’s still the second largest single territory for games. The other being Brazil.

      • Axe99

        Is Brazil seriously larger than all of Europe combined? Europe isn’t too far off as big as the US these days (and a heap bigger than Japan).

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          Yes. Too bad its such a crap place to sell games and its very PC based

          • Axe99

            I think it depends on the game a bit – I hear soccer games do very well in Europe ;). But aye, it’s got so many different languages and sets of laws it’s an administrative/voice over/translating nightmare.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            France Germany and Spain are strongest with Nintendo and Sony content, the UK tends to flock to games people would consider “casual” or “dude bro”

            They buy tons of shit like Mario Party, Wii branded stuff, Fifa, and Call of Duty.

            NIche/core stuff rare does well in the UK compared to other places.

            Although they do like stuff like Advance Wars strangely enough.
            I think they’re enamored with “war games” I think that’s why Dynasty Warriors does well over there.

    • dapaintrain

      Yeah exactly its a western game.

  • Michael Cardwell

    104 Xbox 360′s lol. Man the Japanese hate American products…

    • Jecht_Sin

      More like they hate crappy products. The iPhone is American and it is the top seller in japan..

      • Michael Cardwell

        Most ignorant and uneducated comment I’ve seen in years… Lol

      • The Wolf 47

        Yet both Android and iPhones are selling well.
        It’s not that Japan don’t like the Xbox, it just doesn’t have anything to offer them.
        They are dissatisfied with the brand to the point of no return.

    “Wii U Outsells PS4 Despite inFamous: Second Son Release In Japan According To Latest Sales Figure”
    Yeah and? The Vita outsold the Wii U by even more than the Wii U outsold the PS4 and during a Mario Kart release week! Thats even bigger news than this bullsh*t a$$ clait bait title. But thanks for showing your true colors and showing that you are trying to bait people into fanboy war.
    Besides, who cares wth is going on in Japan. They are wacked! They like stupid things, like fruity, colorful, kiddy, goofy games. They are all into graphic novels and dating sims and sh*t like that. And only seem to care about Japanese made things (not Infamous). Japan is irrelevant in my opinion. And i dont wanna hear no stupid sh*t about how Sony is Japanese. Cuz they dont act like a Japanese company they act like a western company.

    • http://www.gearnuke.com/ Khurram Imtiaz

      This is last week and not Mario Kart 8 debut week. We will get numbers for that next week.

    • heavenshitman1

      Ahh Sony’s HQ is in Japan. And more so, outside SCE, the rest of their business is largely competeing against Asian companies. What happens in Japan/Asia, effects Sony and consequently SCE.
      Many many ppl outside Japan like colourful challenging software too. When MK8 releases, its going to matter to Sony

    • Carl Fin

      Eh, the MK 8 bundle doesn’t release until the 30th so unless you think these figures include future sales? pfff

    • BigDickKaman

      lol u upset fanboy? i don’t think this is a flame bait article its just stating facts n statistics

      • GodGamerDerp

        Apparently PS4′s stronger hardware, ~3.5 million sales lead, large number of 1st party developers, more games, and more developer support have microsoft fanboys extremely upset.

        Stay asshurt at PS4′s success. Keep shilling and spinning while everyone else ignores you and buys more PS4s.

        It’s good to know you’re completely wrong and raging against facts and reality, and nothing you say will happen. I’m constantly right, you’re constantly wrong.

        PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen. PS4 will have more dev support and more 1st party games the entire gen. Sony still has a large number of 1st party studios and they’re all working on PS4 games. PS4 will make a net profit, Sony won’t go bankrupt. I’m constantly right, as usual.

        PS4 has the superior visuals on all console AAA multiplats, more dev support including indies, a large number of first party studios, free to play games and MMOs like FFXIV and Warframe, and unannounced 1st party games (Gran Turismo, God of War, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, etc.) Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4.

        PS4 games not on Xbox One: Killzone, inFamous Second Son, Dynasty Warriors 8, Final Fantasy XIV, Warframe, DC Universe, Yakuza Isshin and other Japanese games, MLB 14 The Show, Bound by Flame, Injustice Gods Among Us, Knack, Natural Doctrine, Transistor, Uncharted, Planetside 2, Dragon Ball Z, MotoGP, Deep Down, Driveclub, The Last of Us, The Witness, The Order, and a ton of indies including Resogun, Rime, Transistor, etc.

        Recently Sony has filed trademarks or had leaks for no less than 6 games. Entwined, Kill Strain, Blood Borne, Dark Chronicles, Project Beast and Guns Up.

        Don’t worry PS4 will keep selling like hotcakes based on superior multiplats alone, and bundles with Destiny and Watch Dogs.

    I think the bigger shocker here is that the PS4 only out sold the PS3 by four units!

    • MS

      No, i think the even bigger shocker here is that the Vita outseld the Wii U during the Mario Kart debut by over 50%!

        Like I said above, this is last week and not Mario Kart 8 debut week. We will get numbers for that next week. The Wii U received a minor boost as well leading up into the debut of Mario Kart 8. We still have to see how the debut of Mario Kart 8 favors the Wii U hardware next week.

      • Patrick Rafferty

        mario kart 8 is released worldwide 30th may, idiot.

        • Michael Cardwell

          lol.He needs to read up before he says stuff huh?

  • heavenshitman1

    WiiU outsold now, wait till MK8 hits. Its ok, dont worry, WiiU is still a doomed failure no matter how well it outsells any of its direct competitors and same for Nintendo no matter how well their financials stack up…..

    • dakan45

      But it didnt even outsell the PS Vita. Not impressed.

      • heavenshitman1

        It may quite possibly do so when MK8 hits. We’ll see

  • kevin

    Damn

  • WellWisher

    Man what a terrible week for hardware in general. It’s good to see the Wii U holding in a week where the 3DS only manages 25k.

      It has been a terrible for hardware sales ever since the Tax hike in Japan :(

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        why was the tax hike initiated anyway?

        • jdp12

          economy in japan isn’t great.

          proportionally, they have a debt far higher than even the USA

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            are you serious? Did not know that. So like is this their way of curbing the debt?

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Not really

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            well combating the issue and getting more money then..same difference since either way it’s all about the money for them

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            No Japan’s economy is on decline because of japanese labor laws, and the declining birth rate.

            Old people are also hoarding cash. Young folks cant find work and arent buying anything

            So taxes go up

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            I see. That is all news to me. Thanks for that info. So imperialism is basically happening in Japan right now or I’m thinking the wrong idea?

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Wrong idea.

            The worldwide economic system is poorly set up is all and the system is starting to show its flaws and curl in on itself.

            Gotta find some solutions to our self imposed issues

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Oh ok. Last thing we need though is ANOTHER economic recession or anything like the Great Depression. Let’s hope whatever will solve this is implemented fast.

          • wampdog29

            Proportionate to their size, gdp and population. However, the US still has more debt by over 7 trillion dollars.

          • jdp12

            which is why i said proportionally.

      • Xtreme Derp

        Not as much time or money for video games in the Japanese economy sadly.
