Period: The week of February 17th – February 23rd (2014)

The PlayStation 4 was released in Japan on February 22nd, and the system sold 309,154 units in its opening weekend, according to Japanese sales tracker Media Create. In Japan, Knack was bundled with the PlayStation 4 at launch, which also gave that game the #1 spot on the software sales chart.
Meanwhile, Yakuza Restoration was released on February 22nd as well. The game sold 138,158 copies on PlayStation 3, and another 82,540 copies on PlayStation 4. Other notable PlayStation 4 launch games—most catering more to western tastes—sold far less, and you can see how they did in the sales chart below.
Overall, software sales for PS4 are, thus far, rather unimpressive, but given the relatively weak launch line-up accompanying the system, the low numbers make sense. It should be interesting to see how PS4 sales hold up in the coming weeks, as there appears to be little in the form of high-profile, exclusive software for the platform coming any time soon.
Finally, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on Wii U sold just 14,330 copies in its second week on store shelves, bringing total sales to a mere 50,047 copies sold thus far.
