PS4 is the Most Ordered Item on Amazon Japan

By   /   2 years ago

Obviously Sony is a Japan based company and PS4 is probably the next big thing (or at least one of the two next big things) but Japan has a strong competitive market with Nintendo sales going wild. Yet, DualShockers has reported that Amazon Japan’s most favorite item at this time is PS4.

The website makes a fancy list of all the items purchased from them in certain periods of time and ranks them based on the most ordered item. The charts are categorized obviously for the genres each item belongs to but the gaming category consists of everything from retail games to consoles to controllers and now PS Vita TV.

To top the list PS4 has beaten the highly anticipated Monster Hunter 4 which is due for a release to Nintendo 3DS tomorrow. According to local news the game is expected to storm the market with a brimful of demand.

Following Monster Hunter 4, Gran Turismo 6 stands tall at the number three spot where it has been closed in on number four by… guess who, PlayStation Vita TV!

Amazingly, the introduction of PlayStation Vita TV to the Japanese market has really started to heat up things as two of its versions are straddling the top six – imagine what position would it have been on if both of the versions were combined.

Other high rankers among the list are Pokémon X and Y at number 5 and Grand Theft Auto 5 at number 7. Disappointingly for Sony though, PS Vita is pretty down on the list at number 29.

So do you think this has something to do with the fact that Xbox One will not be releasing in Japan until 2014? It could be or it just could be the general preference of the public teamed up with the recently announced release date for PS4 in Japan and PS Vita TV’s announcement.
