Since we are on Vgchartz and we like to compare console sales,  comparisons,  milestones etc I decided to make this a thread.  

 

Here is something you don't see a lot.  Ps4 this week sold 96k in Japan.  To date the lifetime sales of XB1 are 68k. It has managed to easily outsell it's LTD.  

 

Not many would have predicted this happening before the gen started at least not this well into it.  The XB and XB360 sold sufficiently that this wasn't possible after a certain period into last gen and the one before. 

 

But here we are.  Yet another milestone for the ps4. Next up,  passing the Wii U in Japan. 

Not surprised, and this will happen so many other times :)

Obviously it becomes harder in future but it will be interesting to see when it happens again.

Twice(Metal Slime PS4 week and Slim + Persona 5 week). A few times where it was either less than 5k behind, 1-2k behind(FF Type-0 week), or just on par meaning  a few hundred units behind(MGS V)

Well it probably did it a few times early on but since xbox built up a bigger total it became rare.

It must be hard for XB1 owners in Japan to find enough local online players lol

I may be wrong but i believe that Japanese Xbox owners are mostly collectors that probably have a PS4 too or americans living in japan.Either way i don't think they would play multiplayer on Xbox one.(specially with most XO games coming to PC anyway)

Even if they were few, they play on US servers... 



It was Britain, it is America, tomorrow France and next year, the world...

    But  isn't there any lag ? Japan is in the other side of the world.

    There is lag from Europe (we play on their servers as well) so yes, there's a lot of lag, but it's bearable for the time zones we play the game.

      And this week it did it again with the release of the Pro.

      Ps4 sales - 93k!
