Knack Review 3

Earlier this week, Famitsu had reported that Japanese PS4 sales in the first two days were 322,083 units, but according to Media Create’s numbers, it was actually 309,154 units. Whatever the case, the PS4 sold over 300,000 units in Japan during its first weekend and easily took top spot in hardware, with Knack topping the software chart due to it being bundled in with the system (as a standalone, Knack sold 150 copies).

After Knack at #1, we have Yakuza: Ishin on PS3 and PS4 at #2 and #3, respectively, with Killzone: Shadow Fall as the 3rd highest selling PS4 game with over 32,000 in sales.

Here’s how each system sold, along with the top 20 selling games in Japan between February 17th and 23rd, 2014, according to Media Create:
