PS5 And Xbox Series X | S they recorded sales almost at par in Japan during the second week of February 2022: according to the surveys carried out by Famitsu magazine, 6,418 PlayStation 5 and 5,955 were placed between Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
It is clear that the well-known semiconductor crisis and the consequent weight weighs on these numbers limited availability of consoles that hit Sony in particular, but being the Japanese market this is an extraordinary result for the Microsoft platform.
In fact, we know well that the one between Xbox and Japan is a long unrequited love story, and despite Phil Spencer’s efforts it seems that users just don’t want to accept theXbox ecosystem.
In the coming weeks, thanks to a restock of PlayStation 5surely the balance will be restored and we will return to a situation where the relationship between the two consoles is more or less than ten to one.
However, there is no doubt that the problems related to components and production lines could at this moment allow the Redmond house to conquer new user quotas even in a difficult market like the Japanese one.
