Well that's...odd. So does that mean people are buying copies of a pack in game or something's wrong with the figures.

Good hardware sales for PS4 but the software sales could be abit better. The sell through percentages for all the games were 60-80% except ghosts(40-60%) which doesnt make the low software sales look too bad

Could it be possible that some people just bought the game without the console? heck i pre-ordered infamous second son and i dont even have a PS4 ( doubt i'll be able to find one till June ).

bring on the JRPGs!

I guess it just shows that some people want physical copies of all their games. Either that or a certain amount of numpties didn't realise it was a pack in.

That was what I thought too but if it's a pack in game why would you buy it, unless it's only a pack in for day one consoles or something.

Yeah I don't think people really understand what the data is claiming. It would be like Wii Sports outselling the Wii in the U.S. There is no way Knack outsold the PS4. Not unless 150 people didn't know the game was packaged in. And then I'm sure they would then return the copy they purchased.

Sales in both areas for the PS4 are bad, but not anything to worry aboy yet. Although the numbers between MC and FAM are always different.

Huh, the Wii U has finally taken over the 360 LTD. That was like a year and 4 months or something.

There is no stopping Knack's global domination. After claiming Mario, Donkey Kong, Pupeteer, Rayman, and Tearaway... it has now proceeded to conquer the PS4 itself.

Cerny domination continuation.

Good job Japan for rewarding Sony for making completely shit games that absolutely will not come back and bite us in the ass when Knack 2 is announced.

Maybe Knack 2 will be good.

I mean, the original Crash Bandicoot was eh, but the second one was great, so who knows?

Or, to use an example from a different genre, the original Super Smash Bros. was pretty meh, but Melee is GOAT

Is the bundled Knack digital? that's the only way it could possibly outsell the console itself.

Knack doesn't look too bad. I'm waiting for it to get in the $29-39 price range before I buy.
