I know, during the Xbox one era Xbox was consistently selling less than 100 per week and now it's not unexpected when it sells 5K and has eclipsed 10K on a few occasions, it's more than surprising it is outright weird.

Yes, I've been wondering this as well.  While I love my Series X, to this point it's still nothing more than a souped-up XBox One since there are hardly any exclusive games for it so far.  I really don't understand how the Series is so much more popular in Japan when it really doesn't do anything more than the XBox One, which barely sold anything there, and it doesn't have any big Japanese games like the 360 had.

Game Pass has been around since 2020 in Japan, maybe it's just been a slow adoption of that? But even then, what games on Game Pass are hitting for Japanese gamers? Minecraft and Human Fall Flat are popular in Japan, but it's gotta be more than that I think....

Xbox One was a massive slap in the face to all gamers when it launched, and an even bigger slap in the face for Japanese gamers, momentum was killed off before it even started. I am surprised people don't remember just how bad of a console Xbox One was.

Xbox into Xbox 360 had decent growth, so naturally the next console should be expected to do similar or even show growth. So for me Xbox Series sales aren't too surprising and is more of a back to normal situation.

I wonder how many of the PS5/Series S/X units are being sent to China.

Also begs the question of how many Switch have been sent to China over the years?
