Given how much more popular handheld devices have been in Japan compared to home consoles in recent years, it was almost inevitable, but now it’s confirmed – the Nintendo Switch has now outsold the PlayStation 4 in the region.
The news comes via Famitsu, which gives us the following sales-to-date numbers for both systems:
- PS4 + PS4 Pro – 8,077,756
- Switch – 8,125,637
Even more noteworthy is how quickly the Switch reached this point, with the PS4 having a 36 month headstart.
Here’s hoping the success leads to even more Switch games out of Japan!
