When you phrase it like that, it sounds more monumental. Imagine if stock restraints weren't an issue.

Xbox Series X|S has so far sold roughly double what Xbox One did lifetime. I'd say it will have no problem outselling the OG Xbox lifetime as well. Hardest one to beat will be the Xbox 360. Xbox 360 had some decent sized exclusives.

IIRC, wasn't 2010 when the Kinect released and was all the hype? If so, that most likely was the reason why the 360 sold so well in Japan that year. Which would make Series X/S sales even more impressive considering they're straight consoles without any gimmick like the Kinect.

I don't recall Kinect really boosting sales in Japan. It was more of a hit in the west.

Do you know what week in Japan the 360 sold over 10,000 units in 2010? 



Never discount Japan's appreciation of small packages.

(Had to do it.)

Looking at our estimates, the Xbox 360 last sold 10K was June 26, 2010 with 17,604 units sold. Blue Dragon helped boost 360 sales to 37,821 for December 9, 2006 and after that sales remained nearly 20K for 4 straight weeks.

Oh damn! Series still has a long way to go. Definitely shows how Xbox really needs to cater to Japanese gamers.
