XBox Series gets another big shipment to Japan, of both X and S models. PS5 version of GoT:DC outsells PS4 version at launch. Clearly no Switch sweep of top 30 this week.

XBS is massive this week. 7.4% of it's total sales in one week.



Surprisingly great hold for the Switch and up YoY too.
XBS demand must be pretty big, maybe we'll see a few 10k+ weeks in the holidays.
GoT selling better on PS5 is great.



Xbox Series X|S selling nearly half of PS5 in Japan is just a weird thing to see. I know it is all about stock at this point. It is good to see the Xbox not dead in Japan.

Great sales for Xbox.

PlayStation/Sony have the best selling game of the week for a change. Got was already a big hit last year.

Big jump for the XS.

It would have been interesting to know how many PS5 are sent off to China (and potentially South-east Asia), and what the actual baseline for the Xbox is since it's selling out as soon as the shipments come in. It feels like without those issues, Xbox sales wouldn't be much lower than Playstation in Japan anymore.



Xbox Series making record weekly numbers in japan. Very good. Hard work pays off. Congrats. Interesting to see if we will see weeks where the Xbox series outsells PS5 there, just like there were some weeks 360 did outsold PS3 back in the first half of that gen.

If this is happening to Playstation, I think the same question has to be asked for Xbox. Same in regards to the PS5's real demand without stock issues. Both are selling everything they ship



Great week for Xbox
