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

Well online pre-orders sold out very quickly. I wasn't able to get a pre-order in after they opened up. I'm guessing that the allocation for JP isn't that high.

Since I wasn't able to pre-order one, I'm probably just going to hold off on it for awhile and stick with my standard X1S for now. Although I did pick up that custom Minecraft X1S for my gf.

I'm actually surprised they're releasing it at the same time. It took them awhile before they actually started selling the X1S here.

Pretty easy to sell out on preorders when you've only got 2 of them to sell



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Isn't the whole point of pre-orders to gauge interest and meet demand? Why do they always sell out!

While I believe there is a strong demand everywhere else and the Xbox One X will have a very good start. 
In Japan, I tend to believe it is because Microsoft only shipped like 20 Xbox One X for the whole island (and I would not blame them for it) :)

well when you prepare only 100 xboxs for sale in japan it makes sense.

Where do they sell xbox's in Japan anyway? Is it online or is there actually a shop or two where you have to fight through the cobwebs to get to the xbox one display rack. I mean what shops can afford to invest in xbox one stock if the turnover of stock takes years not weeks. It will be interesting and possibly amusing to read the launch numbers anyway.



This could be the turning point in the console war against PS4 and Switch in Japan!

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.

That's way too many! I'm thinking more like 100.



Love the product, not the company. They love your money, not you.

I doubt it will do more than 5k launch week in Japan.

As in 5,000? I doubt it will top 500!
