Written by admin

The Japanese once again demonstrated a historic result for Microsoft Japan’s Xbox division, which again saw its latest consoles outsell Japanese rival PlayStation.

According to the latest figures from Famitsu, for the week of June 13-19, 2022, Japanese people purchased 6,695,000 units of Xbox Series consoles, while PlayStation 5 sales stood at 3,035,000 units.

However, as usual, the Nintendo Switch remains in the lead without any possibility of dispute, with 50,405 units sold in the space of a week in Japanese stores.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles remained the best-selling game on its Nintendo Switch version, while Overlord: Escape from Nazarick was the best start to the week, selling less than 6,000 units.
