The past weekend the Playstation 4 console was released in Sonys homeland, Japan. The sales started off slow, and got people saying its a dud. Well things have taken a turn for the better for Sony selling in Japan. Over the past few days the console has been sold out at major retailers and online, Amazon Japan. A second batch has been shipped yesterday, and is nearly dry now. To be exact on how many were sold; a flattering 322,083 units just in Japan.
