Xbox Series X|S Has Outsold PS5 In Japan Again

Reading now: 717

For the second time, the Xbox Series X|S consoles have outsold the PS5 in Japan. Usually seen as having a home ground advantage in Japan, the PS5 only managed to shift 3,035 units--a combined total of both the disc and digital edition--in the week beginning on June 13, while the Xbox Series X sold through 3,272 units.

It's worth noting that the ongoing semiconductor shortage has resulted in supply constraints for both consoles not only in Japan but across the world as well.

So while unusual, this appears to be more of a supply-based anomaly rather than a sudden, genuine change in consumer interest.
