Sony has a special launch bundle for Japan called the PlayStation 4 First Limited Pack. Priced the same as the other consoles, it comes with Knack, free of charge.

According to Sony, the reason for the later launch is that Sony wants more time to have more "content" (games, probably) ready for the Japanese market at launch.

With the Xbox One also not launching in Japan this year, Sony has no reason to rush.
