Xbox One X Pre-Orders Sold Out at Major Japanese Retailers; No Day One in-Store Availability Planned

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox One X Pre-Orders Sold Out at Major Japanese Retailers; No Day One in-Store Availability Planned

Will definitely be interesting to see, how much the X has sold in Japan, once numbers are revealed.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

Microsoft sold 1/2 million original xbox's in Japan and 1.5 million 360s but it looks like the xbox one has dropped the level considerably but still I think the X can do better as it is the strongest console currently where as the xbox one was inferior to the ps4 so didn't get the sales from japanese consumers who wanted the most powerful console. I'm not expecting much of the X in Japan but do think it will raise the level over the original xbox one possibly. Yes pricing may prevent this but I think it has a chance of finding a larger niche than the original xbox one.

All 3 of those Japanese people who prefer power over games library already preordered the Xbox One X, don't worry.

Since Microsoft doesn't release numbers for the Xbox One and they claimed that the Xbox One X is a premium product for the few, I can only sanely conclude that actually numbers are laughable.

Wouldn't surprise me if they only allocated a couple of thousand to Japan for the launch. It is a smaller more attractive console than past designs though. I know they practically laughed at the original xbox. Smaller is better in Japan.

I wonder how they felt about the duke. 



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

The 3 digits number is coming guys !

I'd be surprised if it sold over 5,000 units. Not being mean, just the reality of the Japanese market for Microsoft.

Yep, definitely revitalised the Xbox market in Japan!

Yeah! I can already see 10X more sales at lauch week, perhaps even "amazing" 4 digit sales numbers. lol



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.
