Media Create published the latest hardware sales from Japan including debut Xbox One sales.
I thought the Xbox1 totals were 23,5xx!? There's a 2,000 extra console discrepancy.
23,000 sales are for sep 4 to 7th. So they've added another 2,000 plus sales in two to three days. So 1 week 25,000 plus That date on the headline doesn't make any sense 1/9 to 7/9 because x box 1 did go on sale till the 4th. I'm assuming since this was posted on the 10th they accounted for extra sales in the last few days. Dante@ It will depend on how much x box 1 sales fall off from now. If they pulled in 20,000 a week that would not be a failure. But most people expect it though. 25,000 at launch isn't great, but its not a disaster either because its Japan and they never loved x box. Japan only accounted for 1 million plus sales 360 sales last gen, so if they sell more than 1 million in 10 years-Microsoft will not complain.
Actually there has always been a discrepancy between Media Create and Famitsu… Look at the PS4 launch where Famitsu had 322,083 while Media Create had 309,154 ( http://gematsu.com/2014/02/... )
It appears that the X1 is top selling console in Japan last week. Congrats to MS If they did this in 50 more Countries and got the same response, that would be 1.25m more sales in less than a week
By comparison the 360 sold over 60,000 on its launch
Yeah, its always like this. Famitsu claims 23,5xx while Mediacreate claims 25,6xx. Fanboys will just pick the one they want. This is typical and shows how you cant really trust these numbers and all are just approximations. Either way, its not good for X1.
That's not true mediacreate tracks more stores hence the higher numbers it's always like this
At MS they cry but at Sony they don't smile.
They are literally selling like shit WW.
"like shit WW" no it really isnt. lets not exaggerate. japan it sold horribly though.
Wow.. Xbox One is king of Japan Bet you won't be able to say that for long.. lol
For first and last tile xone is on top of Japan.
As they say, it's all downhill from here.
just like with the ps4 there.
People dont understand this is bad for gaming. The Xbox one is failing big time and we need competition, because that brings mores games and new ips.
It's good for gaming if the competition is competent. In this case it's great that Xbox is failing, unless you prefer having all of your rights taken away.
Well not really. Even if Sony is the only competition all gamers have to do is demand more from Sony or stop supporting them. Competition isn't needed but it does help.
in japan, sony and ninte compete with themselves. micro is non existant there.
"because that brings mores games and new ips." We had a ton of new IPs during the PS2 era when it dominated the competition. Plus look at what's happening with the PS4 now with new IPs like Rime, The Order 1886, Wild, Tomorrows Children etc. My point is even if the other two fail there's a possibility that the PS4 will provide gamers with a ton of games to play and new IPs due the low risk involved in developing games for that platform.
This generation is basically the PS2 generation all over again. Sony will have a massive lead over everyone ... Microsoft and Nintendo will battle for a distant second.
keep in mind the 3ds skus are separated so, no xbox one is not the top selling system. 3DS is with 29.5k units. and wow i expected higher. if its all downhill from here, they're screwed.
HAHA HA HA HA HA where is truefan. he said xbox one will do great in japan.
A western branded console with western games... still better than japanese one without japanese games.
I get a kick out of the PS4 fans who love to talk about the X1 selling terrible and failing. You guys do realize that the X1 is outslling the 360 at the same point right? No, you obviously dont. Sony didnt take MS's marketshare, they took Nintendo's. If the X1 is outselling the X360 and profitable do you really think MS is unhappy? No. It went on to sell millions. The Wii crushed the PS3 and X360 last generation and now the WiiU sells terrible. Take away 75 million Wii's sold and throw them back to Sony and you have a great selling console. However, it isnt at MS's expense like you guys love to hope it is.
Though the Xbox One did sell more than 3DS this week; the sales are still pathetic for a first week on the market.
