The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S appear to have got off to a great start in Japan, with initial stock allocations selling out almost everywhere since the consoles went on sale earlier today.

In response, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has been talking to Famitsu about the plans for Xbox in the region, telling the Japanese outlet that he's "humbled" and "motivated" by the sellouts (translated by Video Games Chronicle):

It humbles me to consider how well the Xbox Series X/S has been welcomed by Japanese fans."

“With the goals we’re working towards for the Xbox Series X/S, this is only the first step in a much longer marathon, but I’m very happy to know how much everyone is expecting from us, and it motivates us even more when pre orders sell out.”

No information has been provided about how much stock was available for pre-order in Japan today, but in any case, Spencer says the team "absolutely plans to ship more consoles in the future":

“Moving forward, we would like to be able to meet demand within a few months after launch, particularly in the Japanese market, where we are thinking of future development based on a long-term outlook.”
