Xbox Series S has outsold the PS5 in Japan, and that’s a big deal


Japan has always been a weak spot in Microsoft’s strategy and has never quite managed to resonate with consumers. Often selling poorly compared to its rivals, we’ve now learned that the Xbox Series S outsold the PlayStation 5 last week, which is a pretty big achievement for the Xbox brand. 

Hardware sales from May 9-15 show the Xbox Series S shifted 6,120 units alone, while the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition only hit a combined total of 2,693 units (thanks, Weekly Famitsu). The Xbox Series X didn’t even come close to touching either of those, selling a mere 105 units last week, though it still triumphed over PS4 at 22 units.
