Forums - Sales Discussion - A single PS4 game outsold all X1 Library in Japan

So we have just discovered that some games on PS4 have outsold the full library of X1X in Japan.

 

Current VGC numbers have that X1 was able to sell 500k SW LTD in Japan as of current, and that is considering its full library over there.

In comparison we have the following games that managed to single handedly outsell its full library over there.

GTA V - 570k

Final Fantasy XV - 1.03M (2:1)

MHW - 2.06M (4:1)

MGSV - 500k

DQXI - 1.42M (3:1)

 

And we also have had several exclusives and 1st parties that sold half of the total X1 library. Knack with digital got very near to outsell X1 (420k physical copies), Same for Persona 5 with 430k, Nier Automata 390k

Nioh - 210k

FF Type 0 - 160k

FF XII - 160k

Tales of Berseria - 260k

DQB -240k

UC4 - 200k

HZD - 270k

GTS - 220k

Bloodborne - 270k

 

GoW4 will also see good sales very soon.

Talk about a clickbait title, gonna' add "in Japan" to the end...

But you didn't clarify it in the title, therefore it's clickbait.

Well... i'm not big on bullying.

It's not a fair comparison as Japan dislikes Xbox.

 

Maybe a fair comparison would be to see how much each game sold in relation to it's overall user base.



Ah i have a good one aswell our beach has more sand then we have politicians

XBO has sold 500k in Japan?



Why would you boast about Japanese sales numbers and omit Nintendo?

Hopefully we finally get Banjo-Threeie and it sees the same massive success most anthromorphic-animal 3D platformers do in Japan.



I'm honestly shocked. Never in a million years...
