Would be interesting to see how much the XBS would sell if they supplied 50k units.

Is demand high enough to sell that much in one week?

Even on launch week they only sold 23562. And that The XBS highest week ever.

And that's all they had on launch. Xbox series could sell 50k for a week or 2



Here are monthly sales of Xbox consoles in Japan. OG Xbox lifetime sales is using Famitsu data, while the other 3 are using VGChartz estimates, which are fairly inline with Famitsu and Media Create figures.

Lifetime sales:

  1. X360: 1.66m
  2. XB: 0.47m
  3. XSX|S: 0.21m and counting
  4. XOne: 0.12m

It should be noted Xbox Series X|S and Xbox 360 sales have remained fairly even when you align the launches for five straight months with the Xbox 360 lead remaining around 200K units. Xbox Series X|S did outsell the Xbox 360 in the most recent month by nearly 18K units.

Last week I compared Switch average weekly sales up to Week 20. This week I want to do Week 21 and full calendar year average weekly sales.

Up to Week 21.

2022- 91k
2021- 124k
2020- 108k
2019- 62k
2018- 45k
2017- 42k

Compare that to full calendar year average weekly sales.

2022- 91k (Same)
2021- 107k (-17k)
2020- 114k (+6k)
2019- 86k (+24k)
2018- 67k (+22k)
2017- 65k (+23k)

What does this tell us? 2020 and 2021 beasted the entire year, with the average weekly sales maintaining above 100k for most of the year. 2019 2nd half beasted, but had a poor first half. 2018 and 2017 numbers aren't suitable comparisons at the moment for 2022.

2022 so far is definitely lagging behind 2020 and 2021 and will definitely beat 2018 and 2017. 2019 will be the challenge. So we basically have a range between 3.482m and 4.494m. If 2022 has a good holiday it could even get to 5m.



Xbox Series X/S will most likely outsell the original Xbox. The true challenge will be the 360.



I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.

Xbox making inroads in Japan after the Xbone was a relative non-entity.
I don't think it can outsell the 360 but it should become the second highest selling Xbox in Japan by a comfortable margin, which is a significant achievement given the brand's irrelevancy there last gen.

Switch continues to gallop like a champ.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
