The sales of the Xbox series in Japan exceeded the total sales of the Xbox One

Xbox X and S series sales have increased in Japan, and according to statistics published by Microsoft, more than 206 thousand units of these consoles have been sold.

This information was published by the Japanese magazine Famitsu, which also announced that the current generation of Xbox consoles has significantly surpassed the Xbox One, which sold a total of 114,831 units. It is interesting to know that in the last few weeks, Microsoft's new consoles have managed to surpass PlayStation. In the week ending June 19, the Xbox series sold almost 6,700 units. Meanwhile, PlayStation 5 has sold nearly 3,000 units. Of course, the lack of supply of PlayStation 5 in the market has been one of the reasons for this statistic.

However, PlayStation 5 still remains the best-selling console in this country by a significant margin. In the week ending July 3, Xbox series X and S sold 9,756 and 2,774 units respectively. On the other hand, at the same time, 20028 standard PlayStation 5 consoles and 4333 digital versions have been sold.

The Xbox series consoles reached a sales record of more than 100,000 units in October last year, less than a year after the global release. In fact, 38,307 units of Xbox series S and 64,284 units of X series have been sold. For comparison, Xbox reached this amount of sales in Japan in four years. In terms of sales, this console has had the worst performance among Microsoft's consoles in Japan.

It is worth noting that Xbox in general has never been very popular in Japan. Several reasons over the years had caused this brand to be sidelined in Japan by the phenomenal sales of PlayStation and Nintendo consoles. In recent years, however, Microsoft has stepped up its efforts to increase its share in Japan, and it seems to be paying off. Among these efforts, we can mention the official release of Game Pass in April 2020 in this country and the purchase of the Japanese studio Tango Gameworks.
