In February, the PS5 surpassed the Nintendo Switch as the best-selling console in Japan, selling 366,982 units, according to Famitsu. This marks a 457% increase in sales year-on-year, as Sony only sold 65,772 units in February 2022. The PS5 even sold more units in February than in the first quarter of 2022 combined, as pointed out by Twitter user Genki_JPN.
