Japan has always been known for its love for good role-playing games. It’s only natural for them to accept CD Projekt RED’s epic release. However, even with the excitement surround The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the game was unable to have a great impact on hardware sales.

PlayStation 4 units were up marginally from 11,489 to 12,096 week-on-week. Whereas Xbox One sales were up by over 100 percent from 148 units to 308 units in Japan.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was also the largest selling title in the United Kingdom in its launch week.
