The PlayStation 4 has surpassed an estimated 5 million consoles sold in Japan, according to Media Create. That’s as of July 23, and with Dragon Quest XI coming to the PS4 this Saturday, expect those numbers to get a bump. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.



Dont forget the game is also coming out for 3DS... the 3DS userbase is pretty big, it might not be a big raise for PS4 sold, or at least as big as everyone excepts it to.

If the 3DS version outsells the PS4... that would be one big surprise.
