Over May 9-15, the Xbox Series S outsold the PS5

Beitrag von rodeoneerer »

It’s no big secret that Microsoft has struggled to crack into the Japanese market. All four generations of Xbox have seen minuscule uptake in a country that vastly prefers to buy domestic hardware from Nintendo and Sony. However, last week something extraordinary happened. Over May 9-15, the Xbox Series S outsold the PS5 by a 2:1 ratio.

This marks the very first time a new-gen Xbox console has outsold the PS5 in Japan. In terms of comparisons, the cumulative sales figures for the PS5 throughout the past week takes into account both the disc-based and all-digital models of Sony's new-gen console, and the Series S outsold both combined, twice over.

According to Famitsu (via GamesRadar), the Xbox Series S sold 3,423 units in that week as well. When split up, 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 that Microsoft has outsold the PS5 in Japan, as the Xbox Series S on its own beat the PS5's sales figures by 6,120 sales to 2,963 back in May.

Another interesting stat is that the New Nintendo 2DS LL outsold both the Xbox Series X and PS4. A surprising feat considering the last 3DS game was released almost three years ago.

It's hard to know just how the new-gen PlayStation and Xbox machines stack up against each other in sales around the world. While Sony announces period sales milestones for the PS5, Microsoft doesn't release figures, so we're left to guess. Last we heard though, the PS5 had sold a total 19.3 million units as of earlier this month, but has lowered sales forecasts for the next year due to supply issues.
