During the third week of June, Xbox sold more consoles than Sony. A fundamental factor in this event would be the supply problems of PlayStation.
If it’s about Japan, there are three consoles that the much-desired Japanese public distributes, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and finally, XBOX. The surprise occurred during the period of time between the June 13 to 19moment where the console microsoft added more consoles sold than its historical rival, Sony, perhaps pushed by the supply problem.
The extraordinary week that lived Xboxaccording to the Japanese media FatmisuHe had 3,423 Series S and 3,272 Series X sold (vs. 2,371 PlayStation 5 consoles). YoSimilarly, the total power of Sony in sales over the region continues to hold up by a wide margin.
If we take into account the total accumulated in these last 2 years since the exit of the fifth generation consoles, Sony holds a number of 1,451,795 devices PS5 sold in Japanwhile Xbox adds a total of 122,059 shipped consoles, 108,983 by X-series Y 13,076 product of S-series.
However, this vast advantage Sony shouldn’t be reason enough to trust his American rival, since they reported supply delivery problems plus, this is not the first time that Microsoft has surpassed it in Japan. Not long ago, during the month of May, this phenomenon was repeated when only Series X sold over 6,000 Japanese floor consoles (PS5 2,200 approx.) during the week of 9 to 15.
One of the keys that holds Sony at the top of Country of the rising sun it is the favoritism of the Japanese citizen for national products. Let us remember that the multinational company that emerged in 1946, which would later join the “battle” of consoles, has its headquarters in the heart of Tokyo and, due to its success and international reputation, it represents a source of pride for its people.
But, beyond this data, at times, the trend seems to be twisted in favor of products from other parts of the world, such as Xbox, belonging to microsoftbased in USA. do you consider that Sony should pay attention to this fact? Or that it will not affect the trend of recent years?
