5.3 million PS4 sold, before home country launch. Xbox at 3.6 million. With the Japan launch in a few days MS may be in trouble.

"Sony, after declaring that its PlayStation 4 was out-selling the Xbox One almost two-to-one in January, has confirmed that it has sold more than 5.3 million PS4s between its launch on November 15 and February 8. The Xbox One, by comparison, had sold 3 million units by the end of 2013. This is before the PS4 launches in its home country of Japan, too; once that occurs on February 22 we can expect the PS4 to surge even further ahead of the Xbox One."


Is Xbone still coming to Japan? I never heard anything yet. Any dates?

Xbox One will fail miserably in Japan, just like both Xbox consoles before it.

Its a console and its not made by Sony or Nintendo and probably isn't getting Monster Hunter. 3 strikes.
If you happen to know how to become a paid shill for Microsoft, pm me.

Both consoles are selling very well though, which is awesome.

Base on the experience of xbox 360, I don't think it will do too well. Japan really loathe the Xbox brand.

Considering that the Wii U has already outsold 360's lifetime sales in Japan I doubt the Xbox One will shift many units at all.
