The Xbox Series X|S has again overtaken the PS5 in Japan



For the second time, Xbox Series X|S consoles have overtaken the PS5 in Japan. Usually considered to have a home-court advantage in Japan, the PS5 only managed to move 3,035 units – a combined total of the disc and digital edition – in the week beginning June 13, while the Xbox Series X sold 3,272 units. .

It should be noted that the current shortage of semiconductors has resulted in supply constraints for both consoles, not only in Japan, but also worldwide. So, while unusual, this appears to be more of a supply-based anomaly than a sudden and genuine shift in consumer interest.

According Famitsu (Going through GamesRadar), the Xbox Series S also sold 3,423 units that week. When split, the disc-based PS5 sold a total of 2,371 units and the cheaper all-digital version only managed to sell 664 units. This is the second time Microsoft has topped PS5 sales in Japan, as the Xbox Series S alone beat PS5 sales figures from 6,120 sales to 2,963 in May.

Even with the occasional week when Microsoft comes out on top, Sony is still seeing positive sales numbers for the PS5 lately. Sony confirmed in early June that PS5 sales had topped 20 million units since its launch in November 2020, and promised a “significant ramp up” in PS5 production for 2022 to help meet demand.

Sony estimated it would sell 18 million PS5 consoles in the fiscal year that started April 1 and ends March 31, 2023, with that number based on the company’s “current visibility” on supply in pieces.
