Xbox Series X and S have outsold PS5 in Japan for the second time.
As reported by Famitsu (opens in a new tab) Earlier this week, both next-gen Xbox consoles outsold the PS5 for the week beginning June 13. The PS5 sold a combined 3,035 units across Japan during that week, while the Xbox Series X sold 3,272 units and the Xbox Series S sold a total of 3,423 units for the week.
That’s taking into account the sales of the digital and disc-based versions of the PS5 console, by the way. The former managed to sell a total of 2,371 units over the course of the entire week, while the cheaper all-digital version of Sony’s next-gen console shipped just 664 units.
In fact, this isn’t even the first time a single new-gen Xbox console has outsold the PS5 over the course of a week in Japan. Just last month in May, it was reported that the Xbox Series S alone had outsold the PS5 over the course of a week in Japan, recording a total of 6,120 sales compared to 2,963 for the PS5.
Expanding the scope to focus on all of Europe, both Xbox Series X/S outsold PS5 for the entire month of February. This was actually the first time that both new-gen Xbox consoles managed to outsell PS5 over the course of a month anywhere in the world, as all three new-gen consoles first launched in late 2020 ( which, let’s be honest, feels like a lifetime ago right now).
