This is not a big surprise. Sony and Nintendo are both Japanese companies. So this was to be expected.

Japanese gaming publication Famitsu is reporting that the PlayStation 4 has sold 322,083 units in two days in Japan. What is interesting is that the Wii U sold similar numbers when it launched in Japan back in 2012. However, it should be noted that the Wii U launched during the busy Christmas period, whereas the PlayStation 4 launched in February.
