Tbh Iâ€™m glad Xbox is doing well in Japan. It opens up the market to nexgen consoles. Sony stock issues should be easing up soon? US has seen ps5 in stock for hours sometimes online.
I think its likely there is decent growth but the thing is a lot of these are likely going to China (same problem as Playstation), so its still to be seen how much of an impact current hardware sales are having on the domestic market. Unlike Playstation we won't have software sales to use as a benchmark
Notice that while Xbox Series X/S once again sold more units than the PS5 in Japan, an undetermined number of these units are actually being shipped and sold in China.— Daniel Camilo (@DanielOlimac) June 24, 2022
