The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, and it was a monster week for PlayStation 4. Kingdom Hearts III topped the charts with an impressive 610,077 copies sold on PlayStation 4. The Xbox One version of the game did not make it in the top twenty. the Resident Evil 2 Remake also had a fantastic start with over a quarter million copies sold, once again on PlayStation 4.

These two big hits massively boosted PlayStation 4 sales. The Pro model was the more successful of the two, moving over 33,000 units for the week compared to over 19,000 for the standard model. For the first time in a long time, combined sales of PlayStation 4 were slightly higher than Nintendo Switch for the week. You can check out the full sales breakdown below.
